NWA10 – Graham Daniels on Psalm 19

I decided to attend the students’ event on my first evening at New Word Alive. This was partly because I wanted to pretend I was young again, but largely because I arrived too late for the “Adult” celebration.  Here are some brief notes I took during the session:

V1 ff Gods glory in creation
Psalms tell us god is enormous though we think he’s small, and we are small tho we think we are enormous.

God is a God of joy who rejoices in his creation. The message of Psalms is it’s God’s way or our way.

Our joy hinges on a relationship with the creator God.

v7 ff Gods glory reveled in his word
Specific revelation of who he is. The Old Testament is pointing forward to the cross, while the whole New Testament is pointing back to cross and resurrection.

God tells us exactly what we need to know about him and us in his book.

Gods word brings life. If you don’t know christ you are dead. If you know christ you were revived. Given life.

Finally, God’s word humbles us.
