The Perfect Man

The Perfect Man

1-John_4-12: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

1-John_4-12: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Psalm 15:1-5

The first Psalm of David is very significant. Coming up in the Psalter immediately after Psalm 14 about sinners, the Psalmist gives conditions to commune with God or to find His favour.

 

Ten conditions are given and they are:
He(or she) that walks uprightly;
He that is righteous;
He that does not backslide;
He that does no evil;
He that does not take up reproach against his neighbor;
He who condemns a vile (or evil) person;
He that honours and fears the Lord;
He that stands by his word or vow no matter the situation;
He who does not oppress the poor and the less-privileged in the society.
He who does not benefit by helping the innocent or accept bribe to do something.

 

Though there are a lot more that are expected of us as Christians, many of those who call themselves Christian will fail this test. Are you walking uprightly as a Christian? Are you righteous? Are you not a talebearer? Is it not only on Sundays that you behave as Christian? What happens in your business when you are the boss or in your business when you sell at highly inflated price? Do you say the truth especially where saying the truth may adversely affect your fortunes? When you make a vow, do you always fulfill it? Can you do self-examination as David did in Ps 26?

 

We need to do self-examination to find out if we are still on the side of Christ. If your score card is below God’s “cut-off mark” of 100 per cent, you need to put on the new man and put the old man in you to death.

 

 

MEMORY VERSE:

Psalm 1:6 “For the Lord knows the ways of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

 

 

 

PRAYER:

Father, Eternal, help me to be counted worthy to reign eternally with You in heaven for Christ’s sake. Amen.

  1. Praise the Lord, my soul;
    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
    2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits—
    3 who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,
    4 who redeems your life from the pit
    and crowns you with love and compassion,
    5 who satisfies your desires with good things
    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    6 The Lord works righteousness
    and justice for all the oppressed.

    7 He made known his ways to Moses,
    his deeds to the people of Israel:
    8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
    9 He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
    10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
    11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
    12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

    13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
    14 for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
    15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
    16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
    17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children—
    18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.

    19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.

    20 Praise the Lord, you his angels,
    you mighty ones who do his bidding,
    who obey his word.
    21 Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts,
    you his servants who do his will.
    22 Praise the Lord, all his works
    everywhere in his dominion.

    Praise the Lord, my soul.

  2. Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done.
    2 Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
    3 Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
    4 Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.

    5 Remember the wonders he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,
    6 you his servants, the descendants of Abraham,
    his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
    7 He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.

    8 He remembers his covenant forever,
    the promise he made, for a thousand generations,
    9 the covenant he made with Abraham,
    the oath he swore to Isaac.
    10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree,
    to Israel as an everlasting covenant:
    11 “To you I will give the land of Canaan
    as the portion you will inherit.”

    12 When they were but few in number,
    few indeed, and strangers in it,
    13 they wandered from nation to nation,
    from one kingdom to another.
    14 He allowed no one to oppress them;
    for their sake he rebuked kings:
    15 “Do not touch my anointed ones;
    do my prophets no harm.”

    16 He called down famine on the land
    and destroyed all their supplies of food;
    17 and he sent a man before them—
    Joseph, sold as a slave.
    18 They bruised his feet with shackles,
    his neck was put in irons,
    19 till what he foretold came to pass,
    till the word of the Lord proved him true.
    20 The king sent and released him,
    the ruler of peoples set him free.
    21 He made him master of his household,
    ruler over all he possessed,
    22 to instruct his princes as he pleased
    and teach his elders wisdom.

    23 Then Israel entered Egypt;
    Jacob resided as a foreigner in the land of Ham.
    24 The Lord made his people very fruitful;
    he made them too numerous for their foes,
    25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people,
    to conspire against his servants.
    26 He sent Moses his servant,
    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
    27 They performed his signs among them,
    his wonders in the land of Ham.
    28 He sent darkness and made the land dark—
    for had they not rebelled against his words?
    29 He turned their waters into blood,
    causing their fish to die.
    30 Their land teemed with frogs,
    which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers.
    31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
    and gnats throughout their country.
    32 He turned their rain into hail,
    with lightning throughout their land;
    33 he struck down their vines and fig trees
    and shattered the trees of their country.
    34 He spoke, and the locusts came,
    grasshoppers without number;
    35 they ate up every green thing in their land,
    ate up the produce of their soil.
    36 Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land,
    the firstfruits of all their manhood.
    37 He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold,
    and from among their tribes no one faltered.
    38 Egypt was glad when they left,
    because dread of Israel had fallen on them.

    39 He spread out a cloud as a covering,
    and a fire to give light at night.
    40 They asked, and he brought them quail;
    he fed them well with the bread of heaven.
    41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
    it flowed like a river in the desert.

    42 For he remembered his holy promise
    given to his servant Abraham.
    43 He brought out his people with rejoicing,
    his chosen ones with shouts of joy;
    44 he gave them the lands of the nations,
    and they fell heir to what others had toiled for—
    45 that they might keep his precepts
    and observe his laws.

    Praise the Lord
