Psalm 119 - The All-Church Experiment

Nearly a year ago, God laid a vision on the hearts of our church leaders to have an extensive time in cultivating a deep love and meaningful time in God's word. That vision has taken fruit this week in the form of a six-week study in the immense acrostic poem, Psalm 119. All the ministries in our church are participating.

Everyone. From youngest to oldest. Six weeks. All focusing on the same thing.

What could God do if every ministry in a church put aside any other agendas and focused on one important thing? Whether that was Scripture, prayer, sharing the Gospel in the community, or any number of other critical kingdom-values, you have to wonder what Jesus could do through a unified local body of believers.

You can check out the details of what this six-week meditation looks like here.

How can a young man keep his way pure?
By guarding it according to your word.
With my whole heart I seek you;
let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O LORD;
teach me your statutes!
With my lips I declare
all the rules of your mouth.
In the way of your testimonies I delight
as much as in all riches.
I will meditate on your precepts
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight in your statutes;
I will not forget your word.

(Psalm 119:9-16 ESV)
