I Want to WANT to Obey Your Decrees

March 8, 2016

An Introduction to Psalm 119

  • Question: What is “obedience” for a follower of Christ?
  • How is obedience different than:
    • The plan of salvation
    • Repentance
    • Good works
    • Worship
  • What are the “Motivations” for obedience?
    • Why does God desire our obedience?
    • Why do we desire obedience?
    • What difference does obedience make for a follower of Christ?
    • What does the Bible have to say about obedience on the part of followers of Christ?
  • Why do followers of Christ struggle with obedience?
    • When we struggle with obedience, what should we do about it?
    • What should be our prayer, when we are praying about our disobedience?
    • How do we sometimes pray about disobedience in ways that are less than honest?
  • What should we expect of ourselves in regard to obedience?
    • How should those expectations inform our prayers?
  • A quick reading of Psalm 119:1-8 (Aleph)
    • If we are all sinners, how does it make sense to talk about those whose way is blameless?
    • If we are all sinners, how does it make sense to say, “I will keep your statutes”?
