Psalm 51:6 English Standard Version (ESV) Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
I have chosen one verse from the Sinner’s Prayer Psalm in order to explain the step by step approach.
When I was baptized back in the 60’s those around me acted as if I was saved, treated me as if I was saved, and knew that God was in charge of my salvation. I had no clue as to what had happened or why. While they trusted in God no one told me that I needed to trust God. No one discipled me, no one showed me the Way. They left me to my own devices.
Since I just began this new approach towards teaching the gospel of Christ, I would like to illuminate what I deem to be the most important aspect of salvation.
Psalm 139:23-24 English Standard Version (ESV) Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
God searches our hearts and determines what needs to change, when it needs to change and how it will be changed.
Our whole life we have been told to take charge of our lives, make goals, achieve goals, plan out our lives and live it to the fullest. That is a general rule and how that manifested itself in your life might be different from others. It might be parents, or teachers, or a drill sergeant. However we form our paths in life, we are asked to choose a path.
In Psalm 51:6 he speaks to the inner man and the secret heart. It helps me to grasp a meaning for myself by calling it the Sacred Heart.
Exodus 26:33 English Standard Version (ESV) And you shall hang the veil from the clasps, and bring the ark of the testimony in there within the veil. And the veil shall separate for you the Holy Place from the Most Holy.
