Psalm 1 :: Blessed is he who stands …


Who is the one that is blessed? Psalm 1 states Blessed is the one who stands not in the way of sinners. Who is the one who stands not in the way of sinners? It is he/she that stands in the way of the sanctified; the saints. In other words, “Blessed is the one who stands in the way of the saints.”  The way of the saints is the antithesis to the ways of the world, for the faithful who are saved by faith, live a life that does not conform to the patterns of this world (Romans 12:2). They chose the way that only a few find; the narrow way that leads to life over the broad way that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13-14).

Points to ponder:
What is the stand that you have taken? It is a stand to stand not in the way of sinners, but to stand in the way of the saints! Do you stand in the way of the saints? Are you blessed in the stand you take  …? Blessed is he/she who stands in the way of the saints.

Psalm 1:1 (KJV) 
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
