The Immense Importance of God’s Word


     It is humanly impossible to overestimate the certain peril you put yourself in when you disregard God’s Word.  Consider these ominous descriptions used in Psalm 119:

  • A fat (i.e. unhealthy) heart. “The proud have forged a lie against me…Their heart is as fat as grease” (vv. 69-70).
  • Darkness. “The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple” (v. 130).
  • Divine rejection. “You reject all those who stray from Your statutes” (v. 118).
  • Destruction. “Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek Your statutes” (v. 155).

     Diligently and carefully heeding God’s every word is not legalism or “Bibliotry”; the Scriptural term is “obedience”.
