Word

Psalm 119:11
Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I might not sin against You.

All too often, I find that my thoughts are not of the LORD. In those times, should my eyes look toward Him, I feel disinclined to gaze overly long, lest I feel the sting of conviction and displeasure. I'm reminded of my younger nephews -- or even my older ones -- when they are disobedient. Their body language changes; gone is the carefree, unblushing excitement and curiosity, replaced by a shirking, dodging attitude. They stand there, looking anywhere but into the eyes of the adult speaking to them.

I feel like I'm looking into the eyes of my Father when I sin. I know what is right and what is wrong; regarding that, I have no excuse. Yet, what do His eyes desire? That I not sin against Him? Yes. But what do they require? Absolute obedience? Absolutely. And has Christ done that? Yes. And has He given me Christ, His Word Incarnate? Yes. So, although He has given His word as a means to obey Him, He has also given His Word as a means to know Him, to be one with Him.
