Why Study & Learn the Word of God?

Psalm 119: 9-16

“How can a young man keep his way pure?”

We need to understand the inherent CHALLENGE

How do we remain morally pure and walk in a manner worthy of Christ – we OBEY the Word of God

Look closely at the prayer of the Psalmist:

  • “Don’t let me wander from your COMMANDS
  • He prays that God would keep him from STUMBLINGJude 24
  • He prays that God would PROTECT him from the evil one – John 17:15; John 10:10

Why do we engage in these, and other, spiritual disciplines, why do we pray that God would keep us from wandering away from Him?
