The Law Do I Love

Psalm 119:97, 163, 165, “[97] O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. [163] I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love. [165] Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”

The three verses above are taken from the longest chapter in the Bible—Psalm 119. This chapter IN the Bible is the greatest chapter ABOUT the Bible. I pulled these three verses from this chapter because they all touch on the same topic. They all talk about loving God’s Law which is the Bible.

Ask yourself this question. Do I love the Bible? In our lives, we make time for the things we love. Is God’s Word one of those things?

This week in our church, we had the opportunity to show our love for God’s Word. We had a couple of days where we assembled about 40,000 copies of the Gospel of John in a foreign language to go over seas to a missionary. This was a great opportunity, but our love for God’s Word should be shown more than just a couple of days a year. It should be a daily thing.

The third verse above states that those that love God’s Law will have great peace. That is so true. The more we love the Bible, the closer we will get to the Author who is the source of all peace. Do we truly love the Word of God? Are we reading it and treating it like we should? The psalmist wrote in the verse above that is was his meditation all the day. Are we meditating and thinking about God’s Word throughout our day? If not, let us identify where we are lacking and ask the Lord to help us do better. Let us do our best to love and treasure our Bible.
