Why Ps 119?

February 3, 2009 – 9:34 pm

One could ask why we should spend time dissecting Psalm 119. What is the use? It is repetitive, and it is not in the New Testament. Well, here are some great blessings that we can receive from God as we study Psalm 119, verse by verse ( or, more precisely, that I am praying for ).

  1. Psalm 119 shows us how to love God through loving His Word.
  2. Psalm 119 shows us how to  think through God’s Word prayerfully.
  3. Psalm 119 shows us how to apply God’s Word in various situations.
  4. Psalm 119 shows us how much God loves us.  He did not leave us in the dark but gave us His Word to show us Himself and His ways.
  5. Psalm 119 says similar things in many different ways.  Thus, the truths are bound to get through our thick skulls.

I suppose there are many more good reasons, but these are a good start.  In the coming months I will be walking through Psalm 119 with the guys in my Sunday School class at church.  It will be an exciting  time, and I hope to blog about some of the things we learn.  Pray for us, that we would learn from God, as He is the only Teacher ( Psalm 119:33 ).
