The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward. But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
— Psalm 19:7-14

Many people on planet earth struggle to find out what life is about and their place in it. Many turn to different people and different things that claim to give them meaning.  Sadly, others have been hurt where they have tried church which has led to further disillusionment.  To find out what life is about we must begin with God rather than Beginning with ourselves. On numerous television programmes we hear scientists Wax lyrically about the solar systems and how they are made up. But rarely if ever is there a comment about how they got there in the first place.  God has not abdicated his responsibility to his creation, indeed he continues each minute of each day in revealing himself to us. The evidence is all around.  His desire is that we believe in his Son Jesus who came into this world for a particular reason.  We need faith to do this.  God has acted and revealed himself to fallen humanity through creation, through his holy word and through Personal revelation. His arms open wide like the Father welcoming the prodigal Son home to all those who will believe in him.
