How to Make God Happy 2

By February 4, 2018Podcast Sermons

Pastor shares a message from Psalm 119:25-32 entitled “How To Make God Happy”.  Main points are as follows:

God is happy when our character looks like God

Involves integrity, wholeness, work to live for God

Our purpose is to see how much sin we can get away from

God is happy when we seek enlightenment (revelation) from God

This world is not our home

We should act like we are from heaven in this world

Our true home is in heaven

God is happy when we humble ourselves to walk in the light of His word, promote truth and remove lying and deceit from our lives

Psalmist used 7 words

Thy word

Thy Statutes

Thy Precepts

Thy Law

Thy Judgments

II Timothy 3:16-17, Luke 4:3-4, Acts 20:32

Statutes- prescribed action or boundary, to mark, hew, cut, engrave, inscribe. Prescribe what life and conduct we are to pursue

Benefits of keeping statutes is how to order my ways

PreceptsTo take oversight or charge, to superintendent, to bind together, always plural

Isaiah 28:8-11

Truths of God that must be bound together in order to understand a whole truth

Singular truths that are bound together to form a more complex compound truth

I Corinthians 14:21, Hebrews 5:12-14

Sad reality is that the church doesn’t understand the hard things
