Walking in Agreement-8/11/2011 (rp)

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3

Surely this represents one of scripture's most rhetorical questions. The prophet Amos was relaying a message to God's people that he was angry about their rebellion.

Beloved, too many of us feel that God is made in our image rather than the other way around. We therefore then feel that we can live life on our terms rather than His. We so easily and often pick and chose the parts of His word that are most advantageous and agreeable with the lives we want to live, leaving out the portions that are not so agreeable. We are sometimes so presumptuous as to pervert the word to fit our lifestyles.

Let us always endeavor to walk with the Lord. Our urgent desire is to be pleasing to Him. This can only be possible when we are in agreement with His way and not our own. "And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it" 2 John 6.

Loving Like Jesus,
