Oh how I love your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies,
for it is ever with me.
I have more understanding than all my teachers,
for your testimonies are my meditation.
I understand more than the aged,
for I keep your precepts.
I hold back my feet from every evil way,
in order to keep your word.
I do not turn aside from your rules,
for you have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through your precepts I get understanding;
therefore I hate every false way. -Psalm 119:97-104, ESV

So how should we approach God's Word according to these verses?
-With love for its message

I believe God's Word to be without error. I believe it contains the words that bring us life. The words that bring us hope and peace and comfort. I believe its main purpose is to reveal Christ to us. These things all affect how approach my Bible reading. This book is like no other and I am determined to be a student of it my whole life. How about you?
