Teaching People – Part #2: Loving God’s Instruction

“Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation.” (Psalm 119:97-99)

Love is complex, meaning that love involves many things. To love someone means that you also love the things about that person. This is most true of our love for God. We love Him, and that leads us to love everything about Him. One of the many treasures to love about God in His Word. The Psalmist used words such as, “law,” “commandments,” and “testimonies,” to refer to God’s teachings. His attitude toward God’s Word is interesting. He acknowledged the benefits of His Word, saying they made him, “wiser” than his enemies” and they were, “ever with” him. The Psalmist thought about God’s Word, made it a part of his day. He loved it for what it would produce in his life: wisdom, boldness, and understanding. Do we love God’s Word the same way? Do we allow ourselves to be taught His ways? God’s Word can produce lasting results. Have you given Him permission to change your life through His Word?

Reflection Questions:

Which passage of Scripture that means the most to you as a Christian. Why is that passage so important to you?

One of the benefits of God’s Word is that it convicts the individual of sin in his/her life. Is there an area of your life that God is convicting you of through His Word?
