A Principled Man Loves God


Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night, Psalm 1:1.NKJV.

When you love God, there is such a desire to honor and do His Will. You want to please Your Father because it is important to Him. He loves you. He cares for you. He will listen to whatever concerns you; a man of principles will follow after Him.

Let us be clear: when we say “a principled man,” we are speaking of the human species (man and woman). Man and woman will offer sacrifices of righteousness to the Creator; his faith is placed in the One who is faithful.

As a child, I was taught that an unprincipled man will lie, cheat, and steal. An unprincipled person is a deceiver; and the deceiver is the enemy of God. His lips are of clay. His eyes are filled with lust for earthly treasures. He will do anything to gather these treasures to himself. His love of money will cause “rot and stench.” He is deceitful in all his ways. (FYI -My Grandmother and Aunt Lillie were my Sunday School teachers.)

Now, that I am an adult, I am charged with the teaching and learning as “a principled man to love God.” “Amazing Grace” means more to me now; Rock of Ages is my song of praise. I can converse with a certain amount of authority “Because He Lives.” A principled man has hope about the unknown because his hope is in nothing less than Jesus Christ and His righteousness. Yes, he can witness with other principled men, “Oh, how I love the name of Jesus.”

Therefore, as a principled man who loves God, I am thankful for the songs of Zion which proclaim a steadfast love of God; an attitude of gratitude. Do not be fooled by unprincipled men who do unrighteousness things and say they do it in the name of Jesus. They are false prophets. For the Principled MAN loves God and seek to do right in God’s eyes and not his own.

So, I pause and say, in agreement, as a principled man, a woman of God, your grace and mercy brought me through.

Your Grace and Mercy

Mississippi Mass Choir

Your grace and mercy brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy brought me through
Thank You for saving a sinner like me
To tell the world salvation is free
There were times when I just didn’t do right
But You watched over me all day and night
Your grace and mercy brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy brought me through
Justice demanded that I should die
But grace and mercy said
Oh no, oh no, oh no
We’ve already paid the price
I once was blind
But thank God I can see
It was because grace and mercy
Came along and rescued me
Your grace and mercy brought me through
I’m living this moment because of You
I want to thank You and praise You too
Your grace and mercy, your grace and mercy
Your grace and mercy brought me through.
