As Christians, we want to nurture our life in Christ so that it continues to grow consistently and refuse to let it stagnate. We want to continue our growth as God's children by studying His Word. We want our lives to bear fruit for the Master. We want a life that is strong and will endure. The old adage for a Christian in whom God is at work is correct: "Whether you think you can or you can't, you are right."
The psalmist reminds us of this incredible blessing:
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with scoffers. But they delight in doing everything the LORD wants; day and night they think about his law. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither, and in all they do, they prosper. (Psalm 1:1-3 CEV)
