Following Jesus 128

Not only is the burden of sin a personal and sickening burden, but in Psalm 38 David describes it as an overwhelming burden. Vs. 4-16. This proves to be the bulk of the psalm and the predominant thought on David’s mind.

Not only is the burden of sin a personal and sickening burden, but in Psalm 38 David describes it as an overwhelming burden. Vs. 4-16. This proves to be the bulk of the psalm and the predominant thought on David’s mind. 

“For my iniquities have gone over my head;” vs. 4.  David is overwhelmed, from the tips of his toes to the crown of his head because he as intentionally drifted from God’s straight path.

Following Jesus: The Progress of the Pilgrim.

As we examine the plight of everyday pilgrims crushed by the weight and burden of their sin, what can we learn from King David in Psalm 38? 

First of all, when God brings the sinner to a realization of their burden of sin, whether they be saved or not, they acknowledge that this is their personal burden. This is how David begins his psalm.

The cry of the sinner who becomes aware of this burden of sin is “What shall I do? What can I do? Is there any hope for me?  Who, or what can rid me of this great and heavy burden? What must I do to be saved?

What does this “Law of Love” the Apostle Paul speaks of in Romans 14:13-23 look like in the context of the neutral items and circumstances of life and living? Let’s take a look.

What does this “Law of Love” the Apostle Paul speaks of in Romans 14:13-23 look like in the context of the neutral items and circumstances of life and living? Let’s take a look.

To begin with, it means that believers are not to pass judgment on one another regarding these neutral matters. “Therefore, let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.” Vs. 13.

We recognize that all believers have opinions regarding morally neutral issues, but believers to never argue about those opinions. What they are commanded to do is follow two enduring principles of Christian liberty. 

First, believers must accept one another. Vs. 3-4. Secondly, believers must have full assurance of their convictions before God – vs. 5-12. Each believer should be fully convinced that what they do is pleasing to God. This is the Law of Liberty.

As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
