Do all things without grumbling or disputing;so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world,holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did notrun in vain nor toil in vain. — Galatians 2:14-16
Where are your priorities, your heart? Is it on crossing the finish line in the glory of Christ or grumbling your way through life focused on winning the next dispute?
Do you not know that you are the light of the world? (Matthew 5:14) A light to those who walk in darkness? (Romans 2:19)
How we walk this life will reveal to the world who we believe Jesus to be. We are an open book hopefully revealing Christ as Savior, Light, Love, Joy, Prince of peace, Patient, Kind, Good, and Faithful. In our life we can be ambassadors for Christ or silent witnesses. Our choice.
We can be successful in crossing the finish line in glory by holding fast to the Word of life. So how’s your book of life revealing Jesus Christ? Is it?
which God, who cannot lie — Titus 1:2
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. — Galatians 3:26
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, — John 1:12
God cannot lie so we are children of God, if through faith in Christ Jesus, we believe in His name. God cannot lie which means we can trust these Words of His. We are His children and this being so we receive every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
The blessing of being holy and blameless before Him. Having His grace bestowed upon us through Jesus Christ and redemption through His blood. The forgiveness of our trespasses and having made known to us the mystery of His will. Because we are children we receive an inheritance and are sealed in Him (Jesus Christ) with the Holy Spirit of promise.
Those are promises to hang on to, rely on, trust in. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross for you so that you can be holy and blameless before God, then you have all these promises bestowed on you. You need not be discouraged. You have hope in these promises. Hang on to them and trust in the One who promises them to you. You can do great and mighty things through Christ when you hang on to His promises.
Go in peace and trust in the everlasting God Almighty and His perfect promises.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. — Jude 1:24
Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. — Genesis 5:24 These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. — Genesis 6:9. Know when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. — Genesis 17:1
Three men are recorded in Genesis as having walked with God.
Not much is known of Enoch except that He walked with God. The only thing we know about him is a little of his lineage and age of fatherhood and how long he walked with God. It must have been quite a walk, certainly daily. On a fateful day his walk with God took him straight home with Him. I wonder if he even noticed or just being in the presence of the Lord was all he focused on and that was enough for him. Oh that we would walk with God as Enoch did — totally focused on our Lord.
Noah walked with God in a time when mankind was very corrupt. Noah had to have stood out in his generation because he was righteous and blameless, so different from everyone else. The contrast between him and his neighbors was obvious and he was ridiculed by them. Noah continued to walk with God and focus on the path God had chosen for Him. God was his strength to endure in fulfilling his call — even when it was extremely tough. Oh that we would walk as Noah did — to accomplish God’s plan for us. Keeping our focus on Him and not the circumstances.
God’s calling on Abram was to walk before Him and be blameless. God had a plan for Abram and knew he would need to walk with Him to accomplish it. We need the Lord. God has a plan for us all but we need Him to achieve it. We cannot walk blameless without Him. We need to walk with God everyday so we can live an abundant effective life.
Three men who walked with God and amazing things happened. Seek Him today and walk with Him every day. Pray to our Lord and read His Word to hear Him. He’s waiting to change your life.
How blessed are those whose way is blameless, Who walk in the law of the Lord. Psalm 119:1
Who doesn’t want to be blessed? God says that those whose way is blameless are blessed. How do I walk blameless? I walk in the law of the Lord. The law is His word, the Bible. To accomplish a blameless walk I will need to open the Bible and read it. The more I read, the more I am blessed as the word infiltrates my heart and overflows into my life.
As I apply my Lord’s word to my walk, a blameless walk, He takes delight in me. That makes me smile and blesses my heart. Nothing delights me more than pleasing my God. Walking in the righteousness of Christ guards me as I walk the blameless walk with Him.
In my relationship with Jesus I have learned to revere (fear) Him and my desire is to walk in His way. I hope that is your desire too. So, open the Bible, search it’s contents and experience a life like you have never experienced before. The Holy Spirit is your teacher and He will help you walk the blameless walk. So be blessed.
Continually seeking Him,
But the blameless in their walk are His delight. Proverbs 11:20b
Righteousness guards the one whose way is blameless, Proverbs 13:6a
How blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, Who walks in His ways. Psalm 128:1
