This week’s Scripture Sauce is sourced from Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible.
You’ll find this sauce highly organized. In fact, Psalm 119 is a Hebrew acrostic poem, where each section starts with the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet, representing the completeness of the poem.
How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119:9-11 (NIV)
I’m always struck by the psalmist’s honesty and genuine love for God. He’s like one of those devoted foodies who snags a picture of each meal, delighting in his culinary acts. But here, we have a person delighting in God’s words.
The writer gives us insight into living a life which is pleasing to God.
His main weapons?
- Seeking God
- Treasuring His word
- Knowing it intimately
- Then living it out.
This is my hope and prayer, that Scripture Sauce would help you on your journey in delighting in God more.
