Jesus Christ, the Model of Perfection…

30 Dec


Psalm 1: 1-3, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

Psalm 1:1-3, grants the read a look into the divine habits of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus here is the “man,” referred to in verse 1 by King David as being prosperous in his ways. The Lord carefully ordered his way of living to have no part in the company of sinners, or follow after any that live outside His will for man. The Holy Spirit of God laid in the spirit of David to let the reader know that their is delight in the law of the Lord, namely the Word of God referenced later in Psalm 119:97-108, “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word. Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.” This descriptive detail of Jesus, is the very same way all who believe should order their lives as Disciples of Christ! We should not enjoy the company of ungodly nonbelievers but follow the path of the righteous in order to be fed spiritually, and edify others in the body of Christ. Their is much joy in reading the scriptures and meditating on them so we too can live a prosperous life in the Lord. This proper meditation on each verse of the Holy Bible will plant us safely by the rivers of water (Holy Spirit) to bring forth fruit in due season, and we will not wither away but lead prosperous lives for the Lord. Psalm 1:1-3, speaks of not only here in the natural world but most importantly of the second coming of Jesus. We enjoy our time here but always yearn for that precious day in which we will hear “Well done.” I pray all will take the time to mold ourselves in the way of Jesus Christ as He walked here while on the Earth, being the perfect role model for humanity. God Bless!
