Selected highlights from this sermon

Psalm 119 is a beautiful acrostic psalm entirely about the Word of God. But, as Pastor Wiersbe reminds us, the Christian life is more than just following God’s rules. It’s about growing in relationship with God through His Word. And if we have a right attitude toward the Bible, it can transform our lives.

Transcripts for Dr. Wiersbe's sermons are forthcoming. Below is an outline of his message.

Psalm 119 was written as an acrostic of the Hebrew alphabet too make it easy to memorize.

The theme of Psalm 119 is the Word of God.

What is your attitude toward your Bible?

Four essential attitudes we must have toward the Word of God:

    • Obedience to God leads to liberty, but disobedience brings bondage.
    • The person who trusts the Word of God obeys it.
