22 Ways You Can Respond to God's Word

Psalm 119 is not just the longest chapter in the Bible, it is also one of the greatest pieces of writing ever to be solely focused on the Word of God. If we claim that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (and I do), then we ought to be very concerned with how it impacts our life.

From Psalm 119, here are 22 responses to God's Word we can exhibit in our life:

  1. Obey God's Word
  2. Know God's Word
  3. Seek Understanding of God's Word
  4. Choose God's Word
  5. Desire God's Word
  6. Rely on God's Word
  7. Find Comfort in God's Word
  8. Remember God's Word
  9. Return to God's Word
  10. Rest in God's Word
  11. Long for God's Word
  12. Trust God's Word
  13. Meditate on God's Word
  14. Live by God's Word
  15. Depend on God's Word
  16. Value God's Word
  17. Keep God's Word
  18. Be Zealous for God's Word
  19. Prioritize God's Word
  20. Draw Life from God's Word
  21. Rejoice in God's Word
  22. Be Thankful fo God's Word
If you picked 3 of these to work on in your life, which ones would you pick?


  1. 7. ...instead of seeking comfort from lesser things.
    11. ...instead of longing for lesser things.
    and 19. ...instead of wasting my time on lesser things.

The Inability of Metaphors and Similes to Describe the Church

The difference between a metaphor and a simile is the word "like."   (that's perhaps overly simplistic, but useful: Metaphor: You're a Dog. Simile: You're like a Dog. Of course, neither a metaphor nor a simile really does a good job of  proclaiming reality: You aren't a Dog. Often times, Jesus and His friends used metaphors and similes to  describe the church. Some of them would be: The church is (like a) house The church is (like a) family The church is (like a) body The church is (like a) temple All of these are useful for helping us understand some nature or  function of the church, but none of them are terribly effective as a  comprehensive description of the reality of the church: The church is not a house The church is not a family The church is not a body The church is not a temple The church is the church. It is completely different than any other  organism/organization known to man. It is a spiritually-joined,  mis

I Shall Have My Revenge

I shall have my revenge I'm not sure I have the quote exactly right, but in the movie Gladiator , Russell Crowe's character says something to the effect of, "I am husband to a murdered wife, father to a murdered son and I shall have my revenge in this life or the next. " I am typically not a big fan of vengeance. It's not usually a wise course of action. However, yesterday this quote came to mind while I was delivering some money to a friend (wisdom side note: never loan money to a friend. Give it to them. If they pay you back, you still have your money but if they don't you still ave your friend ). I thought to myself, "the person who is giving this gift isn't expecting to be paid back, but they will be… In this life or the next. In This Life or the Next Sometimes we live as if we only believe in this life. We make no provisions or plans for the next life. Sometimes we are so focused on taking care of ourselves

How I'm Going To End the Creation - Evolution Debate

You may or may not be aware that coffee has a very quick “mold-creation” rate.  If you leave a cup of coffee sitting out for too long, it will quickly begin to develop mold spores.  In fact, I would imagine, that in just a week or two a mug of coffee would develop a bog-like surface if left alone. Therefore. I’m placing a full mug of coffee in a secluded room where it will be undisturbed.  I’m also leaving instructions in my will that in 100 years, my grandchildren are to go into that room and document the lives of all the mold creatures that have come to life. That’ll show those silly creationists.
