GET FIT SPIRITUALLY is our current sermon series. In this series we are learning simple, practical biblical truths about growing in Christ, and living a life that glorifies God.
You have heard it said, “when all else fails, read the instruction manual.” In Palm 119:105 states, “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.” Basically we are told that the Bible is an instruction manual for the Christian life.
Theodore Roosevelt said, ‘’A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.’’
Patrick Henry said, ‘’The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed.’’
William Lyons Phelps said, ‘’I thoroughly believe in a university education for both men and women; but I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without the Bible.’’
Woodrow Wilson said, ‘’I am sorry for men who do not read the Bible every day. I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and the pleasure.’’
There is no book like the Bible, and there is not a book any more important than the Bible. It is especially important to the Christian because it is the source of our spiritual growth, guidance, and godliness.
Today we are going to learn about GETTING INTO THE WORD from Psalm 119. You will never be a spiritually growing Christian apart from the getting into the Bible.
