BE UPRIGHT IN HEART

“The upright in heart will glory in him”.

Ps 64:10 NIV

We may not always be aware of it but there is a connection between being an honest, upright person and the activity of glorifying God. It is true that occasionally we meet up with someone who worships and praises God but is underhanded, deceitful and full of evil. But it is rare. The two activities do not fit in together. They contradict each other. At the same time, it is rare that someone who is upright in heart does not glorify God. Even so, in an increasingly godless age there are good people who are honest and sincere who do not want anything to do with formal religion and would never dream of joining with the worshipping community.

The worship of the Christian church focusses on the Bible and is grounded in it. It draws its inspiration from the Bible which constantly emphasise’s good character and godly living. And many of the problems which the Apostle Paul addresses in his letters have to do with weaknesses in Christian disciples and his deep concern to get them all to be “upright in heart”. There is no excuse for worshipping Christians not to be upright in character. To not be upright is a failure in discipleship, a betrayal of Christ, and a bad witness to Christianity all round. To live “in Christ”, which is a favourite expression of Paul to describe Christian discipleship, is to be transparently honest, utterly reliable, and good in every respect. You are much more likely to exhibit this kind of conduct if you regularly worship and glorify Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. So worship and keep on worshipping. It is a strong and worthwhile way of life.

PRAYER THOUGHT
Lord, I will continue to glorify you with sincerity and love.
