JULY 26

Charting Our Course by His Word

“But whoso keepeth His word, in Him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him.”  - 1 John 2:5 

The word “keepeth” in 1 John is a derivative of a word that sailors used years ago to refer to their practice of steering their course by "keeping" the stars.

This did not mean, of course, that a sailor would not be blown off course or that he might not over-steer. It didn't mean that he might not nod at the wheel or somehow be distracted, or fail to keep a perfect chart. But the goal, the aim, the desire, and the controlling principle in his life were those stars. He knew that in them he could find direction to his destination.

In the same way, John says God’s commandments are to be the standard by which you and I chart our courses in life.

What is determining your steps today? God’s Word? Or your word?
