"God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives"(1) and Psalm 119: 9-16 gives us nine "spiritual disciplines" for achieving that goal.
1. Live according to God's Word.
2. Seek God wholeheartedly.
3. Keep the faith (don't stray).
4. Hide God's Word in our hearts.
5. Ask God to teach us.
6. Speak God's Word often.
7. Delight in obedience.
8. Learn God's Ways.
9. Never neglect God's Word.
Sometimes we mistakenly think that God's grace exempts us from hard work. Not true.
We aren't saved by works, but we are saved so that we will do good works prepared in advance for us (Ephesians 2:10), and we can't do these works if we aren't seeking to live pure lives.
