With the revelation of the New Testament, Jehovah has given to humanity all things that pertain to life and godliness (2nd Peter 1:3). Like the resurrection of Jesus, there are many infallible proofs that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, all-sufficient, authoritative word of God. David’s glowing words of praise in Psalm 19:7-11 declare several eternal truths about the glorious word of God.
- The law of the Lordis perfect, converting the soul. Conversion is a spiritual U turn. Because the Bible tells the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, anyone who hears and heeds its instruction can turn his/her life off the broad path to destruction and on to the narrow way to life. Because of the glorious word of God, spiritual health, wealth, and prosperity is within the grasp of anyone who desires it.
- The testimony of the Lordis sure, making wise the simple. Because God cannot lie (Titus 1:2), His word is absolutely and always trustworthy. Anyone who hears and heeds His written instructions can build His life upon an unshakable foundation (Matthew 7:24-27). The Holy Scriptures are able to make you wise unto salvation (2nd Timothy 3:15). Because of the glorious word of God, wisdom is within the grasp of anyone who desires it.
- The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart. Joy is the abundant and delicious fruit that grows exclusively on the tree of obedient faith. When someone knows what is the right thing to do and thus be pleasing to God, and then chooses to do it, his/her life is blessed with abundant joy, even when reviled, persecuted, and falsely slandered (Matthew 5:11-12). What is right is not determined by opinion polls, it is forever etched into God’s word. Because of the glorious word of God, joy is within the grasp of anyone who desires it.
