TEXT: PSALM 119: 9-11 9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Key verse: 2 Timothy 2:22: "Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
When God has cleansed, sanctified and filled you with His holiness, it will be required of you to employ the help of God and the means of grace to preserve yourself in His holiness. The scriptures show us how to keep ourselves in the holiness of God every day of our life. We must follow scriptural guidelines carefully so as not to lose God's holiness and the eternal life it gives.
1: Study and meditate regularly on God's word and obey it promptly.
2: Associate with holy people and learn the sound doctrines of God's word that will establish you in scriptural holiness.
3: Have a firm determination to keep yourself from all kinds of sins: in marriage, in the family, in the church, in the Christian ministry, in your business career, educational pursuit, workplace and everywhere.
4: Use all means of grace to resist sin, Satan and influence of the ungodly world on you and bring your body under subjection so that you may win the crown of life.
5: Preach and teach holiness firmly and consistently. This will make your family, church and companions holy and serve as a means of strengthening and preserving you in the holy walk.
6: Give more attention to holy living than to success and achievement. Make sure all your success and achievements are gotten in holiness. Be determined to forgo any gain in this life that would take holiness away from you and be prepared too to suffer any reproach or persecution that comes against you as a result of your holy life.
7: Read books on holiness and listen to the tape's preachers. These will deepen your understanding and conviction on the doctrine and discipline of holy living.
Thought for the day: Give more attention to holy living than to success in life.
Song for the day: Holiness is the beauty of the believer.
Bible reading for the day: Zephaniah 1-3; Revelation 14
