The Whole Amount

Psalm 119:60 says, "The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever." Just for good measure, I looked up the word sum in the dictionary, and after passing all of the financial definitions, I discovered that one meaning of the word is the whole amount.

I believe that is what the Psalmist probably had in mind when he authored this passage. The whole amount of God's word is truth. Not just a little of it, not most of it, but all of it. Do we read the Bible, preach the Bible, and believe the Bible according to the claims of the Bible? God proclaims through his word that all of his word is truth.

Not only is it true, it is eternally true. All of God's righteous rules endure forever. God has given us a word that will never fade away and that will never be false. God's word is a treasure that we should never take for granted. Indeed, we are most blessed by the Father because he has given us his word, and the whole amount is truth.

Preach it with confidence, believe it totally, and live it radically. It is truth without error, it is not capable of failing, and it will change your life!
