17 Jun 1 Peter 2:16-17; Psalm 121:1

16 Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. 17 Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.

Psalm 121:1

121 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?

The thought of ascending to a higher plane to worship God is intriguing to me. So much of our lives are lived in the valley that we need a regular time to escape the pressure of life and refuel on the spiritual energies of the things of God. Take time often to journey toward God. Turn from the distractions of the urgent and turn toward the attractions of the important. Now it is essential that we live good lives. Abstain from sinful desires. It is time for your profession of faith to become your possession of faith. We are called to do God’s word, so we must know God’s will. Live as servants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the King.
