Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric begins our series The Greatest Book with a sermon entitled “The Blessing of the Bible”

Psalm 119:1-8
Ice Breaker: What has been one recent high point and low point in your life over the past year?
1. There are many places in the New Testament that talk about Jesus and his ministry as the fulfillment of the Old Testament scriptures – find three examples.
2. For each of the three examples above find the original scripture in the Old Testament.
3. One of the predominate themes of Psalm 119 is building a secure foundation for your life based on the commands of God. Find one example from Jesus’ teaching and one from the epistles which reiterate this.
4. 2 Timothy 3:16 lists some of the beneficial uses of scripture. Identify each one and give a practical, day to day example for each. (Bonus: Find an example from scripture as well!)
5. What challenges, barriers or inhibitions do you face when studying scriptures? What can you do to overcome them?
6. Choose one verse from Psalm 119 to memorize this week and share it with the group the next time you meet.
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?

“The Bible is the inevitable outcome of God’s continuous speech. It is the infallible declaration of His mind.” – A. W. Tozer
