They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways
They- the ones who are blessed. God’s people. They do no iniquity. God’s people do not live in iniquity, they do not live in Sin. We can not call ourselves Christian if we enjoy and do the very things that crucified our savior to the cross. The new testament puts it this way.
1 John 1:6-7 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin.
The key words here is WALK. Psalms say “they walk in HIS WAYS” walking in darkness is walking in our own ways wants and desires, walking in sin, pride and rebellion. We can not do this and be called Christians. We can not make a God in our image and call him the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If we do we are walking in Darkness. We are not to do what is right in our own eyes but we are to walk in HIS ways.
So what is HIS ways? Well His ways are laid out clearly in the bible. We need to follow His commands in the bible. For some unknown reason that I can not understand, a lot of professing Christians say we are not under the law but grace, and in saying this they throw out the commands of Jesus and think they can live the way they want because God’s grace covers them. When has the grace of God ever told us as Christians we do not have to keep Jesus commandments? I can not find this belief in the bible. What I do find are scriptures like this.
1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work a reprobate.
If we believe we do not have to follow Jesus Commandments how then can we be saved. If we deny God in our works living for ourselves, how can we be saved? If we live this way we need to repent. God is not our servant doing what we want Him to do, but we are His servant and we are to bring Him and His son glory through our lives. We must never forget who is the master and who is the servant. There is a doctrine out there that tells us we can command God, he must answer our prayers the way we want and only good will be in our lives. But there is a call the church needs. We being Christians and serving God are called to suffer for His sake.
Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.
Our lives are not our own, our lives are His, and he can do with it as he pleases. We need to submit to His word, submit to each other and live for God daily, in our actions at work, at school, and especially at home when no one is watching. I do want to mention one thing. Walking means a life style. We may make mistakes along the path and that’s why Jesus tells us when this happens to repent and ask God to forgive us, not to continue in that sin but to change. We cannot be condemned when we mess up but turn to God and learn from our mistakes and Failures giving God the glory in every aspect of our walk. We are HIS children.
