Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

An unplugged lamp gives no light. The electricity it takes toilluminate the room, if not connected, makes it impossible for the bulb to glow.

How can those who are young keep their way pure? By living according to your word.
- Psalm 119:9 TNIV

The Psalmist offers a way of life tip. It may be true that staying grounded in the faith, maintaining a discipline of Bible-reading, it may not guarantee all runs smoothly, but to fail to do so, makes faithfulness, obedience, discipleship next to impossible. To keep one's way "pure" is to stay connected. To disconnect, in this case, from God's Word, makes the lights flicker, if not go out.

A routine of prayer, Bible-reading, worship, fellowship, helps us to stay connected with our discipleship electricity. I pray we're all plugged in.
