Advent Meditation... Day 11


Advent Day 11
The Journey Towards Bethlehem
Year of Our LORD, 12.11.2008

I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
I hate the work of
them that turn aside;
it shall not cleave to me.
Psalm 101:3
.

.


How are we measuring up … to the LORD’S standard of holiness? Most of us (hopefully) would not go to see rank movies or read trashy novels and magazines that are fleshy. Hopefully, Christians would also not be feeding their souls on music that had unholy themes, also. What about those things we listen to… gossip, TV’s [sic] “values”, the internet’s conglomeration of fleshy news and even more fleshy ads ?

The Psalmist said that he would set nothing wicked before his eyes. He shook off the works not worthy of The LORD when he had to pass near them. May we go and do likewise.

O LORD GOD of My Salvation… help me guard the windows of my soul. Help me turn my face and my hearing away from those things which cause YOU+ pain. Incline my heart to Thy testimonies and not to anything unworthy of YOU+. I do love THEE+, O ROCK+ of my soul. May my interests reflect my love for THEE+. This I pray in the name of The FATHER, Who created me… The SON+, Who+ saves me, and The HOLY SPIRIT Who sanctifies me. Amen
