Heart of David

In appointing someone to replace King Saul, God, through the prophet tells Saul the following, “But as it is, your kingship will not be established. ADONAI has sought for himself a man after his own heart, and ADONAI has appointed him to be prince over his people, because you did not observe what ADONAI ordered you to do."  (1Sa 13:14, CJB)

When taking part in worship I often contemplate the meaning and theology of the songs the I sing. After all, as I worship our King, I want the words to be not only a true expression of my heart and acceptable in His ears but to also be backed up by how I live.

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.” -Isaiah 1:16-17 (NKJV)

Eph 5:1-33

(1)  Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
(2)  And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
(3)  But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
(4)  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
