Psalm 119:30 (ESV)

I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
    I set your rules before me.


Song Of The Day


Bible Commentary

Psalm 119:30 is a Bible verse from the Old Testament where the Psalmist is reaffirming his commitment to God and to His Word.

In God’s covenant with us, He committed to blessing us faithfully if we walked according to His commandments. (Deuteronomy 28:1) When the people broke that covenant and failed to be faithful, He mercifully sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be the atonement for man’s sin.

Upon acceptance of Jesus Christ and our belief that He died for our sins, we entered into a covenant with Him—a marriage covenant. Through Jesus Christ, we are united back to God and therefore have died to our sins and live through Christ.

Even though God sees us as perfect through the filter of Jesus Christ, we still must make a conscious effort to follow His commands in the Bible. We, the church, are the bride of Christ and He is our Groom. We entered into a marriage covenant with Christ when we accepted Him as Savior.

God takes marriage very seriously. He watched His Son be condemned to death, death on a cross, by the very people He sent Jesus to save. That is the epitome of love and great grace.

Jesus said in Luke 12:48, “Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”

God requires our loyalty, just like a groom expects his wife to be faithful to him. Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39)

DavidNorman-1Peter4-8

If we love our spouse with all our heart, soul and mind, our actions portray faithfulness. If we don’t love them like this, most likely we are unfaithful in some way—maybe not physically but possibly emotionally.

In Psalm 119:30, the Psalmist says he has chosen the way of faithfulness. The word “faithful” is defined like this: loyal; conscientious. The root word of conscientious is “conscience”, which Webster’s defines like this: a sense of right and wrong, with an urge to do right.

We, the church, are to be loyal to our Husband. Ephesians 5:25-27 says,

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”

We must strive to be faithful to Christ as a loving bride is to her husband. We are blessed as we submit to God’s protective order.
