Hints of Spiritual Success

How can a disciple be sure his paths are straight?

Yet - the disciple can be confident in victory over this world, sure that his heart is no longer deceived.

Asaph, in Psalm 73, offers two hints of spiritual success.

1) Life is won when each disciple's eyes are cast upwards without distraction:

Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire but you. (Psalm 73:25)

2) Life is won when each disciple will echo the Psalmist in his soul:

You guide me with Your counsel and afterward You will take me into glory. (Psalm 73:24)

Heaven offers no second prizes, it only holds out the first prize.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election ... and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:10-11)
