As we gather to hear the Word of God preached today, what will be our resolve? Will we consider God’s Word and then decide based on our own feelings and emotions what we will keep, how we will interpret it, and what we will discard? Or, will we take God at His Word and submit ourselves, regardless of how we feel, to His loving and freedom-giving authority over our lives?
Consider these words from the Psalmist: “I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes. I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands” (Psalm 119:59&60).
