Everyone wants life. That is, eternal life. What this implies is that even though a man experience the first death, he does not want to taste of the second death which eternal damnation. May this not be your portion in Jesus’ Name. Amen. However, as it has earlier been submitted in one of our studies, there is whether a man will gain this eternal life is a function of how he has jealously patterned his life while here on earth. Today’s Bible reading attests to that submission. The Psalmist confidently said that He will never forget the commandments of God for through these commands he has access to life. Beloved, how do you take God’s commands and instruction? Do you take it lightly or feels it is only meant for some certain set of people. May God grant you the grace to cherish His words and pant after Him in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The commandment of the Lord works by instructing a man on what to do and what not to do. Doing the wrong thing or what God completely detests can attract death and eternal damnation to a man. May God help you obey His instructions and commands as they will be sent to you in Jesus’ Name. Amen. It was against this backdrop that Apostle Paul enjoined the Colossians that the word of God should dwell in them richly with all understanding. Also, Joshua was commanded to meditate on the word day and night so that he might have good success. Hide the word in your heart and surely eternal life will be granted to you. May this be your portion in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
