Biblical Instruction for Living Effective Lives
In this week’s episode, I discuss Psalm 51 and the biblical instructions for living effective lives. David’s prayer of repentance gives us insights into the importance of knowing God and his character, knowing how to deal with our sin, and then knowing how to be used by God to teach others.
I discuss Romans 12 and Paul’s instructions for us there as compared to David’s prayer in Psalm 51. Our desire to live an effective life is only possible when we experience the metamorphosis and complete renovation that Paul describes in Romans 12:1 and 2. Interestingly, Psalm 51 captures David experiencing this very transformative and renovating of his heart.
This episode of Relentless Truth will remind us all to focus on the object of our faith. Simply changing our worldview lenses is insufficient, but being transformed by God is entirely sufficient as we grow in maturity in the faith.
