06/15/09 - Psalms

Yesterday, in my cover to cover reading of the bible, I started the Psalms.

Psalms 1 has to be one of my favorite Psalms. It's just a great way to start this wonderful book of the bible.

Psalms 1:1-2:
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and nights.

Do you see the progression of sin here?

First, he doesn't walk in the advice of the wicked.
Second. he doesn't stand in the way of sinners.
Finally, he doesn't sit with scoffers.

Walk, stand, and sit!

With sin you may just walk past, see what's going on. But then it may peak your interest enough to stand and watch. Finally, it can grab your attention enough to sit down.

We have to be on guard of sins trap and how do we do that? We take pure joy in knowing, reading, and meditating on God's Word!

I have been studying Psalm 1 too! I highly recommend Spurgeon's sermon from the Treasury of David:
