Blame

Due to recent sin in my life, I have undertaken a focused study in the psalms. I am captivated with the premise that those whose ways are blameless are blessed. Can my ways ever be blameless?

In simple obedience and trust, my ways are blameless in Christ. My ways are never blameless in myself. We are blameless in Christ, but never blameless in ourselves. That is God’s Word, not mine. And yet, I can be so self-righteous. And so can you.

I am reminded to seek God with all my heart. When I am arrogant, I am rebuked. 

My life is not my own. I fight the good fight, but often wonder what fight I am fighting. What have I done to the cause of Jesus in my blameful ways? I’m sure, I have represented me more often than Jesus. 

You see, blame is never about Jesus.

Are you blameful or blameless? Be pensive. Your answers are important. What say you?
