The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight to life. Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey ripping from the comb. They are a warning to those who hear them; there is great reward for those who obey them. Psalm 19: 7-11 NLT
Why read and study scripture?
Because doing so will revive your soul. It will make even the simpest person wise. Reading God's word will bring joy to you heart. You will have insight into life. You will have warning and great reward by obeying scripture.
Why is this? Because God's law is perfect and trustworthy. God's commands are right and clear. Through studying God's word we grow in reverence which lasts forever. Each thing the Lord commands is true and fair. In reading, studying, and following, we desire more of God's word as someone would desire more gold or more honey.
Do you need a revival? Wisdom? Joy? Insight? Reward?
Read the Bible.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
