'A HEART SOUND IN HIS STATUTES'

"Let my heart be sound in Your statutes: that I be not ashamed" - Psalm 119:80
.
There are two kinds of shame that will befall mankind, especially those who knows the way of truth - eternal and earthly shame.
.
Earthly shame comes when you disobey His law, although there's a remedy for that - forgiveness and repentance. And eternal shame occurs when you fail to be raptured with Christ (Rev. 16:15), there’s no remedy for this.
.
How can I then prevent this shame?
.
A heart sound in His statutes is the only cure to these shame. If unbelievers won't mock the God you serve or name you to be part of them, then your heart must be sound in His law.
.
How can I also achieve this? First you must pray to God like the Psalmist did and study to show yourself approved unto God (2 Tim. 2:15), delight and meditate in His word, day and night (Ps. 1:2).
.
When your heart is sound in His word, you will be able to walk and work according to His will, all the thoughts that flows out from your heart will be pure because it's what comes out of your heart that pollutes your life (Matt. 15:19).
.
God wants your heart to be sound in His law so that you can do all His will (Deut. 5:29).
.
What is your heart sound in? Sexual immoralities? Craftiness? Fraudulent skills? Theft? Worldly songs? Worldly Philosophy? All of these will lead you to eternal destruction.
.
Now is the time to repent and ask for a clean heart that would be thoroughly complete in His word.
.
Do you have a heart that meditates in His word often, talks about them and teaches others about the truth in it?
.
Remember, religion won't take you to heaven, it is only a heart that is sound in His law that would prevent you from being ashamed here on earth and in the life hereafter.
