Psalms 119: 138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
The understanding anointing of the letter Tzaddi shares the power of story and how God's Stories are both righteous and build faith. I share a "Story" along those lines.
This is the Truth Network treasurers of today we get to him to understanding the second anointing of the letter Saturday, which has to do with righteousness.
So we talked about the wisdom of now how do we apply to understanding and as we talked about yesterday that God is righteous and upright are his judgments, and so how does that play out if we were to understand how can we actually make that happen is really really cool that you get this example of why God taught why Jesus taught in parables has everything to do with stories, and so as we look at verse 138, which is the understanding verse of the letters Audi it says thy testimonies but thou has commanded our righteous and very faithful so testimonies. It's just an interesting question immediately commanded and and it's interesting that he commanded that we keep his testimonies commanded that we essentially keep the Bible so that we would have these stories so that we can see how God actually is, people, and that these stories greatly increase our faith says they are righteous. In other words, here's the right way things happen in their very faithful so write what happened with no right what happened Ashley with lots wife. Think about all these different testimonies. All these different stories begin this application of what righteous looks like so and very faithful meaning that as we hear the stories we can see that the Bible is a book of examples of exceptions.
Mother was always people have this phenomenal walk with God and he's to come on these amazing adventures which God walked with God much. I'm sure you see that he does do that and then it's all working towards being made into the image of his son.
Even in the case of Joseph when you think about his testimony. His story went through a lot of trials and tribulations imprisoned and all that he went through with his brothers in order to be made more and more into the image of Christ and you can see that Joseph and so many different ways. And, of course, as we see those stories. They all are very faithful they build our faith well enough. You're like me and you just wondered in which which story really brought you to say how did it. How did it really happen in my case I am. I feel so blessed that I came to faith through the Bible and reading the Bible's and my biggest concern is I originally read the Bible is why didn't Adam die right the day that you eat of this fruit you will surely die me.
My immediate problem was that I didn't know the wisdom of this letter is that all that God is righteous and his commandments are very upright.
In other words, everything about them is exactly right but I didn't see that it seemed to me that he was lying because Adam didn't die when he ate of the fruit. Well, as I began to study and study and and and look more at that story and eventually get to the part of the New Testament where we see Christ would die that we would what we would be able to live life look like a life look like. As I studied the New Testament that I was no longer separated from God and so immediately when Adam ate the fruit you remember.
He knew he was naked so we hid so here's the separation of the God he was no longer able to be in God's complete presence in other words, God could no longer to completely turn his face upon.
As we talked about in the previous section and be himself because Adam now was hiding and so was I by the way, and so is Jesus died and covered us with his blood, and I saw that his story than I realized. Oh my goodness that by accepting this blood, I now can actually live. I can actually get to the point where God can turn his face and he can be himself with me and I can be himself with him and that I can actually live from biblical standpoint of life right to have life and have it abundantly is actually to be able to be in God's presence actually have this relationship have them in my heart is the only way that I meant to be able to live and so his testimonies are righteous right there been telling you how to get right out of the right with Christ, and also faithful because through that I understood in my faith by hearing and hearing by the word
