An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

From the Heart

Pro 3:1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: (KJV)

We “keep” (5341) God’s “commandments” (4687) in our hearts or we don’t keep them at all. Obedience cannot be a matter of following rules and checklists, it is a part of regeneration. The law was always available as an outward code, but the promises of the prophets had to do with it being written on our hearts. The opposite is what Paul would call “eye-service”.
