The Whole Counsel Of God

Sep 13, 2016

We read in Psalm 1 a good description of what the whole counsel of God is: “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. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
The whole counsel of God includes warnings about judgment we all deserve, as well as the only remedy or escape. The Lord Jesus Christ has paid for the sins of all those He has planned to saved from before the foundation of the world.
Have you become born again? If not, today is still the day of Salvation! May God be merciful!
