The Unfolding of God’s Word (Deuteronomy 32; Psalm 119:121-144)

“The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts an understanding to the simple.”  Psalm 119:129

This morning I found myself in complete awe of God as I read His Word.  I am presently, in addition to our More for Christ readings, reading through Romans.  This wonderful letter from Paul is truly the theological constitution of the Christian faith.  As one reads he or she comes away with an amazing awareness of who God is and how men are to relate to him.

This morning I was in Romans 7 where Paul continues his discussion concerning the laws relationship to man.  I encourage you to open your Bible to this passage and follow the outline below:

I.  The law reveals the depths of my sin, Vs: 7-14

The 10 commandments reveal, without question, I am a sinner.

2.  My sin reveals the depths of my depravity, Vs: 15-23

The commandments reveal, without question, I am a slave of sin.

3.  His grace reveals the depths of His sufficient sacrifice for my sin, Vs: 24-25

God’s grace clearly shows me how God saves all who come to him by faith through grace alone.

As I finished this chapter, I could not help but praise the name of our great and glorious God who has not only given me grace but has given me an understanding of his Word.

In Psalm 119:121-144 the Psalmist makes the following discoveries:  1) All of God’s precepts are right.  2) All people fail to keep the law.  3) All God’s promises are well-tried and they are true.  God’s desire is that we would try His Word, trust His Word, and obey His Word.  When this happens, the path we took in Romans 7 will be clear each and every day.

Lord, teach us to daily seek to be in your Word, to be changed by your Word, and to communicate your Word to others.  In it is the food we need for eternal life.”

  1. David Says:

    Once, I was a slave of sin. A slave to the uncommitted, uncaring, happy-go-lucky, I’m a good person lifestyle. But God, desiring all to be redeemed, revealed to me His road less travelled and the riches of His grace found along the way. He said ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ I gave Him my heart and He transformed it. He is still molding it daily. It has been an incredible journey and I am forever in His debt. Thank you Lord Jesus for saving me. There is no past too troubled, no sin too great that God’s grace can not overcome. His grace is sufficient for me.
