The Infinite Character of God

“With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless; with the pure You will show Yourself pure; and with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd. - 2 Samuel 22:26-27

David, during his life, emanated the infinite character of God; he understood the ways of God and desired to be like Him. David had experienced God’s mercy himself and became a merciful king. God’s character should be reflected in the lives of His children––Christians, who have become set apart from this world, have become God’s sons and daughters: “I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty”- (2 Corinthians 6:18).

When Jesus taught the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ he spoke to His disciples concerning the blessedness of having these Christian characteristics:

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy… Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God… (Matthew 5:7-8).

David declared God’s ways to be perfect––blameless: As for God, His way is perfect (2 Samuel 22:31); Jesus in, Matthew 5:48 set a high standard for His children: Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.There is a strong correlation of blessings when walking in obedience and in accordance to God’s Word:Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord! (Psalm 119:1). The Apostle Paul also instructed Christians to:

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation (Philippians 2:14-15, NIV).

Will you allow God to build in you His character as you obey His Word?

…giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge…
~2 Peter 1:5~
