Psalm 119:1, 2

This was a hastily prepared Wednesday sermon, prepared for an evening upon which I did not expect to need to preach.  Nevertheless, the word was enlightening and instructive for me personally.  The first two verses of Psalm 119 are quite simple, but contain profound truths for the Christian life.  They describe God’s people as “the undefiled in the way,” and those that “keep His testimonies.”  They also “walk in the law of the Lord,” and are commanded to “keep His precepts diligently.”  Needless to say, God’s word is at the center of everything in the Christian’s life, and it must be so for us if we would enjoy the favor of His countenance.
