“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple” (Psalms 19:7).
Today’s Morsel: Every so often I like to return to the book of Leviticus and study the law. And what I have found is that the law was designed to build true Godly character in God’s people. It was to convert their thinking and cause them to treat each other the way that they would like to be treated and to become a reflection of God before others. What we call today the ‘Golden Rule’. Scripture says that the law was given by Moses. In other words, Moses delivered what God had said unto the people. But through the prophet Jeremiah, God said that He would someday write His law upon peoples' hearts so that they would know Him (see Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 10:16). Once you receive the Holy Ghost, a life of holiness should govern your heart and mind. That’s what true conversion is all about. Knowing God and making Him known through our lives to others.
Sing: He’s changing me, My blessed Savior, I’m not the same person that I used to be. Well, it’s been slow going, but there’s a knowing, that someday perfect I will be.
Thought For Today: “Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father” (Proverbs 28:7).
