TOPIC: YOUR ANSWER IS IN JESUS CHRIST
TEXT: Psalms 19:7 “The law of the LORD is perfect,converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;”
Worldly success can leave you empty, but here’s something that won’t: ‘The instructions (Law of Christ) of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. ‘Have your plans fallen apart? Have you made a mess of your life? Do you need direction? Read this: ‘The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple’ (v. 7). Have the things you thought would bring you happiness, ended up bringing you misery? Read this: ‘The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart…’ (v. 8). Are you directionless, wondering where to go and what to do with your life? Read this: ‘The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living’ (v. 8). The answers you’re seeking are in the gospel of the grace of God.David was a brilliant soldier, a popular king, and a man with access to all the riches anyone could desire, but he discovered these things don’t bring lasting joy. What he found instead is that: “… The instructions of the Lord are true… They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward to those who obey them’ (v. 9- 11). What was David’s problem? ‘How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Don’t let them control me.Then I will be free of guilt…’ (vs. 12-13). What was David’s solution? Reading God’s Word daily, feeding his soul on it, and walking according to its precepts. – Today, you and I are enjoying a free gift – (Jesus Christ) answer to all our unending challenges we face. How to receive rest, Joy, Peace, Wisdom and eternal solution is through Jesus -saviour of our Soul. All answers come from Him.
