I am a pastor that is blessed with a patient and understanding congregation. This last Sunday I put that patience to the test by attempting to preach on Psalm 119! Thankfully they passed the test, but I failed! With great kindness and patience they sat through about 50 minutes of teaching that contained 4 main points and 35 sub-points! Yes, you saw that right: 35 sub-points. (I told you they were patient and understanding!)
As you may imagine, I rushed way too fast on the last point with its 7 sub-points. So, (at a friend’s recommendation) I am going to use this post to attempt to clean up my mess and present (much more slowly) the last main heading of Sunday’s sermon: “Oh, How I Love Your Law!” (Psalm 119)
To guide our study of Psalm 119, I offered 4 questions to be considered: 1. What is God’s Word? (a definition); 2. What is God’s Word like? (a description); 3. What is God’s Word for?; and 4. What should be our response to God’s Word? (application). It is this fourth question that I want us to (re)consider.
According to Psalm 119, what should be our response to God’s Word?
