Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in His ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them His way.
No one is perfect. No one is without sin. If we were, we certainly would not be in this world. We would be in the glory of God at this very minute. However, we fall short—way short. We needed Someone to teach us how we should act and worship in order to reach God’s glory.
Without Someone’s perfect ways and blood, we could not ever hope to reach God’s glory in the end. We would be looking forward to an eternity of doom. God instructs us to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior so that we may be reunited with Him in the end and be able to spend eternity in Heaven.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Jesus becomes our Guide and Teacher once we enter into a relationship with Him. The relationship works to help teach yourself and others how God expects us to live. We live in the Word to keep ourselves from falling in line with the world and with Satan. We become wiser the longer we stay in the Word of God and immerse ourselves in our relationship with Christ. When we become wiser through God, we can help others become closer to God. By allowing God to be our Teacher, we gain the wisdom to be able to discern what is right and wrong. We become humbled and are able to teach others about God.
