God’s Word is Beyond Wonderful!

By Edd Sterchi


In Psalm 19:7-11, we can read of some of the incredible aspects of God’s



The law of the Lord is perfect, [a]converting the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;
The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;
The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
Yea, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the 
11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned,
And in keeping them there is great reward.

1) It is from the LORD – God has given us His holy word.

2) It is perfect – there are no errors or flaws in it whatsoever.

3) It brings the words of salvation – in it we can learn how to be saved.

4) It is sure – it is fixed and will never change.

5) It brings wisdom – it helps us to be of sound mind.

6) It is right – it will never lead us down the wrong path.

7) It brings joy – it can delight our hearts to the fullest extent.

8) It is pure – it is unpolluted from the influence of the world.

9) It brings enlightenment – it puts everything into proper perspective.

10) It is clean – it is uncontaminated from men’s opinions.

11) It is eternal – it will never perish or fade away.

12) It is true – there is not even a hint of falsehood in it.

13) It is righteous – and it is where we learn how to live righteously.

14) It is precious – the treasures found in it are priceless.

15) It is sweet – it tastes wonderful to our soul.

16) It is instructional – it warns us of the consequence of not obeying it.

17) It is rewarding – it reveals blessings that come from following it.

    Maybe we should spend a little (or a lot) more time in it. What do you think?
