What should we do with God’s word?
What does God expect us to do with his word?
If any of us would write a letter to our family members, we would do so wanting them to read it. God has given us a written word he obviously intends for us to read, study, understand, and keep. This requires effort and patience on our part. Growing in understanding the Bible is a slow and painstaking process. When the writer of this psalm prays not to be forsaken, he acknowledges his need to persevere in this pursuit and that means an ongoing need for God’s help.
Accepting the fact we have to get God’s word in us, how do we do that? We look at the second stanza of this psalm in this sermon and see that it answers that question in practical terms.
