Sermon Overview

Scripture Passage: Psalm 119:18, 27

Adrian Rogers says, “The Bible is a wonderful book. I’m not finding hidden flaws; I’m finding hidden beauties.”

The more we read the Word of God, the more it will reveal itself to be true. Psalm 119 reveals the seven wonders of the Word of God.

First, the Bible is a supernatural book, divinely inspired by God; it is often called the very breath of God. Within the Scriptures, we see the prayers, praises, fears, and frustrations of the men who wrote them. The Bible is marked by their personalities, yet God, in and through these men, was the one who was speaking.

Second, the Bible is a spiritual book; it was written by the Holy Spirit. We cannot casually rip the truth out of these pages: God will reveal its meaning to us or we won’t have it. Psalm 119:18 says, “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.” We may have access to the Word of God, but until the Holy Spirit convicts or illumines us, it’ll not be real in our hearts.

Third, it is the Savior’s book; Jesus is the hero of the Bible. Adrian Rogers says, “If you read the Bible and don’t find Jesus Christ somewhere, somehow standing in the shadows or presented in plain view, go back and read it again.”

Fourth, the Bible is a sovereign book; it is the supreme authority in spiritual matters, not human reason. A man and his word may diverge in this dishonest world, but God and His Word are the same.

Fifth, it is a surviving book. In a world that is ever-changing, God’s Word stays the same.

The Bible is also a sustaining book. It not only survives but also enables us to survive. As we are physically sustained by physical nutrition, we are spiritually sustained by the Word of God. We always find help, comfort, and wisdom in the Bible.

Finally, the Bible is a supercharged book; it has incredible power. It’s able to penetrate and scrutinize the innermost part of our personalities. We can stand in awe as we experience its power in our lives, changing us from the inside out.
