Psalm 119:63 PARTNERSHIP
Psalm 119:63 – I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
Who can be my partner?
Who can I work closely with?
In our text the Psalmist is saying, “I am the companion of anyone who fears my God and obeys his word.”
Let us think of the word “fear” as being “respect”. The only one who can truly be my partner is the one who fears or respects the same things that I fear or respect.
As a Christian, there are at least four things that a partner of mine must respect.
RESPECT FOR GOD’S WAY
A partner of mine must agree with God’s way for a person to enter Heaven through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:14-18, John 14:6, Ephesians 2:8-9
We can not be partners with those who are unbelievers. 2 Corinthians 6:14
RESPECT FOR GOD’S WORD
If I truly respect God, I must respect His Word.
My partner must also respect God’s Word.
Psalm 119:89, Romans 15:4, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21
RESPECT FOR GOD’S WORK
God’s work is the Great Commission. A partner of mine needs to be interested in carrying out God’s plan of evangelism and church growth. Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15
RESPECT FOR GOD’S WALK
God has a code of conduct for us. We need to walk in obedience to Him. We must keep His precepts. 1 Samuel 15:22-23, Micah 6:8, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Galatians 6:1
