Psalm 119:134

Our Continual Service
By Pastor Dr. Ronnie W. Wolfe

There is much oppression in the world, and there has always been against God's people and the testimony of the saving grace of God. People want to create their own gospel instead of believe in the true gospel of the Bible.

Only God can deliver us from our oppressors; and, if he does not do it here on earth, he will do it through our death by taking us to Heaven to be with Him.

So, the psalmist says that he will continue to keep the precepts (statutes, word, Bible) of God; that is, because he knows that God will take charge of his oppressors.

When Christ was oppressed and afflicted, he opened not his mouth (Isaiah 53:7). Isaiah 53:5 says, But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

He did not quit, so should we not quit. We must walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4). Baptism implies our continual service to God through his churches. Let us remain faithful to him.
