As we begin this series let’s look at some of the benefits of digging into God’s Word, found in Psalm 19:7-11.
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether.
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
In keeping them there is great reward.”
What are benefits to God’s law, testimony, precepts, commandments, and judgments?
They restore the soul, make wise the simple, rejoice the heart, enlighten the eyes, endure forever, they are righteous and more desirable than gold. And “by them we are warned and in keeping them there is great reward.”
What a list! Why wouldn’t we want to know His Word better? Look at all the benefits! And the greatest of all is knowing Him better. Won’t you join us as we grow more in love with the One who loves us most?
