Psalm 119:33-40 (CEB)
First Congregational Church of Anchorage : 10 September 2017
1- Lord, teach me what your statutes are about,
and I will guard every part of them.
2- Help me understand so I can guard your Instruction
and keep it with all my heart.
3- Lead me on the trail of your commandments
because that is what I want.
4- Turn my heart to your laws,
not to greedy gain.
4- Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things.
Make me live by your way.
3- Confirm your promise to your servant—
the promise that is for all those who honor you.
2- Remove the insults that I dread
because your rules are good.
1- Look how I desire your precepts!
Make me live by your righteousness.
I remember checking the book out, curious at what all the fuss was about. There were reviews about it, and some ministers that I had heard of before were condemning it. So as soon as the library would allow, I reserved it. I was not the first one to do so, so it would be a few weeks before I would have a chance o read it.
