Proverbs 31 8-31-18

Being like Jesus must be our highest priority. If Jesus isn’t Lord of all in our lives, is He really Lord at all?

Proverbs 31:26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. [30] Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

The greatest privilege in my life, aside from knowing Christ, is living with Robin. She is the most godly woman I have ever known (except, possibly, Faye Griffin). She determined long ago to let Christ lead her and she has followed faithfully.

Our goal as a couple has been to “spur each other on to good deeds” (Heb. 10:24) and to follow this verse:

Ephesians 4:15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will hold to the truth, becoming more and more in every way like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.

If we make becoming more and more like Christ our goal, then we will do whatever it takes to be like Him, namely, walking with Him in constant obedience. I used the word, “constant,” because we tend to be selective in our service. We try to pick and choose how we will serve the Lord. What it means is that we tend to ignore Him and do what we want (or not do what we don’t want). Where’s the Lordship in that?!

Today, let’s really allow Him to be LORD of our lives as we listen to EVERY word He says and be obedient to EVERY command.

BTW, have you been reading Ephesians with me?
