Pastor Rick Jackson

Flip Wilson had many memorable characters but two that stood out were Geraldine Jones and the Rev. Leroy Jenkins. Rev. Leroy pastured the “Church of What’s Happening Now” He declared, “We’re not interested in what it was, or what it shall be some day. We are interested in what it is now!“ There is some right in that of course but there is also much wrong. It ignores the Truth of Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Be that as it may, Psalm 19 DECLARES, DEFINES, AND DETAILS. It grabs the attention, gives the information and goes the distance- all the way past the finish line!


1. God’s Glory in the universe [v. 1a]

2. God’s Glory in Detail [v. 1b-2]

3. God’s Glory in Human Experience [v. 3-6]


1. Evangelizes the Lost [v. 7a]

2. Edifies the Believer [v. 7b-10]

3. Enhances the Life [v. 11]


1. To Be Right before God [v. 12]

2. To Do Right for God [v. 13]

3. To Be Pleasing to God [v. 14]

It should never be based on feelings or desires of people but on the plain teaching of God’s Word. How often people say “I Prayed about it” or “I feel God led me” in total opposition to the written Word of God.

Proverbs 16:7 When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
1 Corinthians 7:32-34 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
1 Thessalonians 2:15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:
1 Thessalonians 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
