Counseling One Another

Helping you grow in God's all-sufficient grace and truth

Counseling One Another

The Diverse, Unified, and Powerful Word

The congregation of College Park Church in Indianapolis were the gracious hosts of this year’s NANC annual conference. Monday evening, Mark Vroegop, pastor of College Park, opened up the conference with a wonderful exposition of Psalm 19:7-11. He demonstrated the completeness of God’s Word and its sufficiency for the counseling of our hearts by noting its six effects. Take some time to walk yourself through this text and meditate on the wonders of His Word.

  1. The perfect Word brings revival (v. 7a)
  2. The trustworthy Word gives wisdom (v. 7b)
  3. The truth of the Word brings joy (v. 8a)
  4. The radiance of the Word gives light (v. 8b)
  5. The fear of the Word is clean and endures (v. 9a)
  6. The righteous Word satisfies (v. 9b-10)

As a result, by the words of God we are warned and “in keeping them there is great reward” (v. 11). What a glorious gift God has given to us in His Word!

  1. This is convicting to me because the WORD is our truth, help, our all in life. Yet do I know this word so well that I have it hidden in my heart? I need to meditate more and memorize! Not just for myself, but so that I can better help others.

  2. I need this reminder of how much I need the living Word of God. I’ve noticed that the more satisfying the Bible is to me, the more I desire it. Something I can’t explain, but I’m thankful.

  3. Thank you for this reminder of the value of God’s Word. I agree with Stephanie about how God grows our desire for His Word as we find that it does satisfy. What joy and peace and hope we find when we walk with God. I am so thankful we can trust His every Word.
