~ Summary ~
This Series ~ We have only scratched the surface of the reasons and benefits to read, study, and understand the Holy Bible as found in Psalm 119.
Big Picture ~ Psalm 119 is full of terms referring to the Word of God and its contents. A partial list includes: the Law to be obeyed, Testimonies to be shared, Precepts to be practiced, Promises to be claimed, and the Way to be followed. Some reference to the Word of God is found in almost every one of the 176 verses.
Comment ~ If you don’t have an intentional plan for Bible reading and study it will not happen! Change is hard, but with determination change can become a habit which will evolve into a lifestyle. Satan does not want you to increase your time and so any effort to increase your spirituality will be met with resistance. But “greater is He who is in you” (1 John 4:4).
If you are regularly in the Word of God all other spiritual disciplines will fall into place. In other words, it is well worth the effort.
Credit ~ As noted in the first post, this series has been based on a list given during a pair of sermons by pastor Dr. Mike Wilde of Laurelwood Baptist Church entitled “The Blessings of Reading the Bible” (December 2013).
