“I Will Never Forget Your Precepts”

“I Will Never Forget Your Precepts”


The discovery of the Dead

Sea Scrolls in 1947 has been called the greatest

archaeological find of the 20th century. The ancient manuscripts hidden in the

caves near Qumran are the oldest known copies of key Old Testament books.

As followers of Christ we believe that

the Bible is the eternal, unchanging Word of God.( 1

Peter 1:23 -NKJV; cf. Hebrews

6:13-20 -NKJV), thus we firmly believe the

inspired words penned by the Psalmist:

“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is

settled in heaven. Your faithfulness

endures to all generations ” ( Psalm

119:89-90 -NKJV).

Jesus once stated:“Heaven and earth

will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away ” ( Matthew

24:35 -NKJV).

The Bible is more than just a

historical relic. It is the living, powerful Word of God ( Hebrews

4:12 -NKJV), in which we encounter the

inspired teachings of the Lord and discover how to live for Him and honor Him ( 2

Timothy 3:16 -ASV; Romans

12:1-2 -NKJV; Ephesians

4:23-32 -NKJV; Philippians

3:7-15 -NKJV).

The Psalmist concluded in Psalm

119:93 -NKJV:“I will never forget Your

precepts, for by them You have given me life .”

Let us make memorizing key Scriptures

part of our study of the Bible, so we, like the Psalmist, will never forget

God’s precepts .

If we’re willing to do this, we will be

doing the Lord’s will ( Psalm

119:11 -NKJV; cf. Psalm

37:30-31 -NKJV; Matthew

7:21 -NKJV).
