As I insert Jesus into today’s verse, I’m moved by the urgency and fervency with which David felt when he wrote it. Re-read today’s verse and picture yourself being the writer. Do you see it? When I insert Christ into today’s reading, I see:

Give me understanding, and I shall keep Jesus; Yea, I shall observe Jesus with my whole heart!

Whoah! When one’s mind and heart are opened to the word of God and it is understood and accepted, the seed takes root in man’s heart and spiritual fruit is produced. Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

When we understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ and accept it with true understanding, we are His forever. We are kept in the palm of His hand forever.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

A dear friend of mine believes that a person can give up his/her salvation. How can that be when this verse says that they shall NEVER perish and NO ONE can pluck them out of His hand. The Bible does not contradict itself. Jesus’ Parable of the Sower in Matthew tells us about the different types of seeds that go out. The only one that is successful is the one that falls on good ground. Therefore, if someone claims to have given up their salvation, they did not receive the word of God that fell on good ground. Read the Parable again and pray that your eyes are open.

Today’s Psalm tells us that with Christ we will receive understanding and have the choice to keep His commandment! It’s a choice. If you’re not in your Bible, you will sin. If you’re in your Bible and heed its words, you will be able to say no to sin. It’s as easy as that! I could keep writing and writing on this topic. However, if you have a question, please feel free to leave me a comment 🙂
