On Psalm 111:2

"Great are the works of the LORD; they are studied by all who delight in them" (Psalm 111:2).

This is a statement of fact. Those who delight in the works of the LORD, study those works. Where do we find an account of His works? In Scripture. Do you consider yourself a Christian? Do you claim to belong to the One whose name is behind that title? Are you a slave of Christ? If so, it should be evident in what you do. You should delight in God's works and be studying those works. If you don't: if they bore you, if you are too busy to be bothered, if a sermon or message that delves too deep or takes too long drives you nuts, if you would rather be anywhere but face to face with God's Truth, if you don't spend time engaged in spiritual activities and deep down, don't want to, then you better re-examine who you are. Are you a Christian? Really? Do you really belong to Jesus Christ (the demons believe in Him and tremble, but they are not saved - see James 2:10)?

Jesus isn't the slave of mankind. He isn't sitting up in heaven waiting for yo to ring a bell so He can come running to do your bidding. The believer in Jesus Christ is a slave to Him. We are called to do His bidding. We are to be reading and studying His Word regularly, praying always, attending church on Sunday mornings, fellowshipping with other believers, sharing the Gospel with the unsaved and growing in Christ. This doesn't mean if you miss some Sundays because of circumstances you are not a Christianit means this should be the pattern of your life.

If your life is too busy to afford this pattern, you better think twice before you call yourself a Christian. You better get to your knees and ask God to give you a delight for His works.
