“Divine Duties”

Key Verse

“My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes” Psalm 119:48

Text — Psalm 119:41-48


Duties are assigned responsibilities or tasks to someone by a superior person. In the school, teachers give the students what to do with a specific time to do it, parents also do the same at home. The word of God which is the eternal Constitution reveals the divine duties from God to His creatures.

These divine duties or responsibilities are:

(i) Trusting the word of God. Trusting human words will not achieve much in life.
(ii) Obeying the word of God. The Psalmist makes a commitment that he would obey and keep the word of God always.
(iii) Preaching the word without shame. It is our duty to teach, preach and share the word of God with others with the objective of leading them to the salvation of the Lord.
(iv) Loving the word of God. Jesus said, if we love Him, we must keep His commandments.
(v) Standing for the word of God. We must do this without compromise.
(vi) Meditating on the word of God.

When we are saved through His mercy, His grace flows into our lives and release divine strength to carry out the divine responsibilities acceptably.
