“Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.” (Psalm 119:97)
Do you ever read verses like the one above and wonder what is wrong with you — why you have such a hard time sitting down to read the Bible, or why you sometimes don’t even want to read it? Or maybe you find yourself reading because you know you should, but you wouldn’t say you love it, or that it’s something you think about all through the day.
The Word of God is alive and powerful. God is telling us about Himself through His written Word. He’s telling us the story of redemption. He’s arming us against Satan and sin. He uses His Word to convict and to comfort us, to heal and to pierce us. Through the words of Scripture He shows us how to live, and He shows us that we can never live that way without Jesus.
No wonder the devil does whatever he can to steer us away from the Bible! He knows that it will transform our minds and our lives!
Do you long to really love God’s Word? Do you want to move beyond reading out of duty and start looking forward to your time in the Word?
We’re going to look at what the Bible says about its indispensable place in our lives. We’re going to look at the rich blessings and joy that come when we steep ourselves in its words. And while we do that, we’re going to use colored pencils to help us stay focused and lists to help us reflect on what we’re seeing. We’ll use simple methods that will help us see just how exciting our time in the Word can be!
We’ll spend the majority of our time looking at Psalm 119 (one stanza at a time), and then finish by looking at 2 Timothy 3:15-17 and Hebrews 4:12.
Martin Luther said, “The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; It has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold on me.”
Let’s let the living Word of God take hold of us as we spend the next few weeks learning to delight in its riches!

Better than Gold!
By: Susan Menzmer
This is a fantastic study to really start to catch a glimpse of how truly valuable and precious God’s Word is! I believed it was precious before, but my eyes have been opened a bit further at HOW wonderful God’s Word is, and how blessed I am to have this gift! It strengthens me, gives me delight, teaches me good judgement and knowledge, makes me wiser than my enemies, and holds me back from evil ways, just to mention a few of the MANY things it does for me! This study will be WELL worth spending time on, and will point you to a treasure more precious than gold!
