"The righteous one may fall . . . , and he will certainly get up."—Prov. 24:16.

?????

For Those Loving Jehovah, “There Is No Stumbling Block”

“Abundant peace belongs to those loving your law, and for them there is no stumbling block.”—PSALM 119:165.

?????

It is not easy to run the race for everlasting life. Jesus Christ ran it without ever stumbling, but none of us can do that. James said that “we all stumble many times.” (James 3:2) Our imperfections or the imperfections of others can make us slow down in the race or even stop for a while. If this happens, we might need help to get back in the race. We should not be surprised if we stumble from time to time.—1 Kings 8:46.

?????????

Even if we stumble or fall, we can recover. As long as we trust in Jehovah, he is willing to help us when we have problems or make mistakes. He will help us to “get up,” because he knows that we love him. But wicked people do not want to get up. They refuse the help of God’s holy spirit and his people. The Bible says that “there is no stumbling block” for those who love Jehovah’s law. This means that we can get back in the race for everlasting life.—Read Psalm 119:165.

 Let the wicked man leave his way

And the evil man his thoughts;

Let him return to Jehovah, who will have mercy on him,

To our God, for he will forgive in a large way."

(Isaiah 55:7).

SOME EXPRESSIONS EXPLAINED

  • Race for everlasting life: Living as a Christian is like being in a race. The prize is everlasting life. This race is described at 1 Corinthians 9:24
  • Stumble: To become weak in the truth or to make a mistake
  • Stumbling block: A situation or a desire that can cause a person to make a mistake
  • “Get up”: To continue running, or serving Jehovah, after we stumble. This is described at Proverbs 24:16
  • Desires of the flesh: Human desires that God does not like. If we do not control our normal desires, they can become sinful desires of the flesh
