Scripture is What We Need (Radio / Podcast)

More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
(Psalm 19:10 – ESV)

Scripture contains everything necessary for our spiritual life. It is surer than any experience. It contains divine principles that are the best guide for us. It makes the thoughts of God clear not cloudy. It is perfect and therefore lasts forever. It is true and capable of producing righteousness. Scripture is infinitely more precious than anything this world has to offer. Psalm 19 is a clear testimony to the power of God’s Word.

Psalm 19:1-6 – general revelation (in the world)

Psalm 19:7-14 – special revelation (in the Word)

Vs.7-8 – attributes of the Word

7a – its teaching makes you turn
7b – its witness makes you wise
8a – its guidance gives you gladness
8b – its instruction gives you insight

Vs.9-11 – appreciation of the Word

9-10 – its nature makes you hungry
11 – its nurture makes you holy

Vs.12-14 – application of the Word

12-13 – it exposes sin, makes you pray
14 – it evidences salvation, makes you praise
