The Need for Salvation

Psalms 119:121-128 :


I have done what is just and righteous.
Don’t leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant’s well-being.
Don’t let the proud oppress me.
My eyes fail looking for your salvation,
for your righteous word.
Deal with your servant according to your loving kindness.
Teach me your statutes.
I am your servant. Give me understanding,
that I may know your testimonies.
It is time to act, Yahweh,
for they break your law.
Therefore I love your commandments more than gold,
yes, more than pure gold.
Therefore I consider all of your precepts to be right.
I hate every false way.

The need for salvation has a way of clarifying what we need to do. The song writer became very aware that he needed to follow God's laws in order to be saved. Now we don't have to follow laws to be saved today, but we do need to come to God on His terms. We need to hear what God says and believe it enough to act on it. In our case we must understand that Jesus is God and that He came to die as a man to pay for our salvation. Then He resurrected and went up into a cloud. This was seen and documented in the Bible and this is what you must believe. The reason that we need salvation is because we have sinned and, according to the Bible, don't have the right to do anything but suffer. These are things that God's word makes very clear. These are the things that the writer of this song wished that he could have heard. We now have it all written down in the Bible for us to easily read.

The writer of this song was correct that God's word is more valuable than pure gold. Pure gold can't purchase your freedom from Hell. Pure gold can't give you the ability to serve the purpose for which you were made. These things come from obeying God's word and for us that means believing in Jesus the way that the Bible says. This song writer didn't have the whole Bible like we do, but we have no excuse. A proud person won't look into this because he wrongfully assumes that he knows better. A humble person will check out the facts because he knows that he is often wrong and that he really does need help.
