Love His Word
Guest Speaker Austin McCoy
To love God is to love His law but to look to the law is to look to Jesus.
- God and His word are good.
* The law is good. The law apart from Jesus is legalism. The law with Jesus is life.
* The law is for our benefit.
* The law is life. Psalm 119:23, 40, 88, 107, 149
- The psalmist is in this desperate state of longing for God’s word.
* The psalmist desires to be holy.
* The psalmist desires to be taught. Faithful Available Teachable Filter your life through scripture and not filter scripture through your life.
* The psalmist realizes nothing is better.
Reasons reading the Bible is struggle
- Don’t understand what is going on.
- It’s not applicable to my life. I don’t get anything out of it.
*Pray through scripture
- I don’t have time. Argument of time is argument of priority.
