Behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand.
As young Christian it didn’t take me too long to run into the concept of “The Plumb Line” around church circles. People would say that the Word of God is like a plumb line
for your life. Line your life up with the Bible and it will be a plumb line
to keep focused on what is upright and true. Measure what you do and say against the plumb line
. The plumb line? hmmm… Now what’s that?
A quick look at Mirriam-Webster online dictionary shows you that the definition is “a line (as of cord) that has at one end a weight (as a plumb bob) and is used especially to determine verticality. OK, line (check), weight (check) and verticality! OK, what’s vericality? And what’s it got to do with my new life in Christ?
