Summer Series 2017 - Psalm 119

Famously, Psalm 119 is the longest psalm in the Bible and almost every verse contains one of 8 words that are used again and again - pretty much interchangeably  - to refer to God’s written word. And the basic theme of the song is that blessing comes from living in line with God’s word, v1, Blessed are those … who walk in the law of the Lord, v3, who … walk in his ways. 

But what the song explores and expresses at length is the experience and reality, the tension and struggle of seeking to live according to God’s word, but dealing with the harsh and daily reality of sin within and a hostile world without.
