“The word of God” -Psalm 19:7-11

Psalm 19 gives us insight about the Bible while also telling us how to live successfully for God’s glory and our greatest good. God describes the Bible as law, testimony, statutes, commandments, judgments, truth, more desirable than gold.

God has revealed Himself to us in writing in the Bible. The more we read, study and believe God’s revelation of Himself in written scripture, the more successful our spiritual life will be.

We are so busy today we don’t make time to read and study the Bible. We make time for work. We make time for play. We make time for TV. We make time for movies. We make time for sports. Yet we don’t make time for the Bible.

Christians ought to have the same view of scripture that Jesus had. Jesus never corrected the written scriptures. Jesus never questioned the truth of the written scriptures. Jesus rebuked disciples who did not believe all of the scriptures, Luke 24:25.

Evaluate your own beliefs about the Bible. Would Jesus call you a fool for not "believing ALL that the prophets have spoken," Luke 24:25?
