Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
1 Thessalonians 2:9-1&Psalm 139 & Matt 23: 27-32
Although the Lord forgives my ‘iniquities’, it is to his benefit –and mine –that I keep my conduct pure, blameless and upright. This does not require that, like the Pharisees, I appear to others to be ‘good’ –like a white-washed sepulchre as Jesus put it. Rather, it requires that from the heart I practice God’s holy love, for the Lord, for neighbour, and for myself as a dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. Christ Jesus, help me keep my conduct pure, blameless and upright.
Where can I go from your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? (Psalm 139:7)
