What does it take to "go beyond?" Education? Wealth? Family? Networking? Occupation? Power?
The first Psalm almost explodes with a joyful exclamation of one who "goes beyond." That one is called "blessed." And it is not just anyone. It is "the one" - the one who is genuinely "glad" to be a follower of Christ.
To look at some who profess to be followers of the Lord does not provide an answer. They do not seem to be satisfied with life, have a sense of peace about them or look forward to life with expectancy and joy. They appear "ordinary." They give the world the wrong impression of what God has to offer us through Christ.
The first Psalm provides the "do's" and "do not's" to "go beyond" the ordinary Christian and become an extraordinary Christian.
Negatively, the extraordinary Christian does not follow the advice of the wicked, spend time talking to them, listening to their advice and even avoids being in their presence whenever possible.
