Reflecting on Psalm 1: The Beauty of God's Word

A Sermon by Mark Wells from the Bible Society NI

This past Sunday, we were blessed with a profound sermon on Psalm 1 by Mark Wells from the Bible Society of Northern Ireland. Mark's insightful exploration of Psalm 1 reminded us of the deep roots and nourishment found in delighting and meditating on God's Word, drawing a powerful parallel with the life and mission of the Bible Society NI.

The Bible Society NI, an integral part of our global mission to share God's Word, endeavors to ensure that everyone has access to the Bible in a language and format they can understand and afford. Through their work, they aim to reach every person so that they might experience God’s purpose for their life. The Society supports Bible translation, production, distribution, and engagement projects both globally and locally, reinforcing the foundation of faith shared in Psalm 1.

To support the Bible Society NI, we can engage in prayer, volunteer, or contribute financially. Their initiatives, such as the Bible-a-Month Club, provide a tangible way to help spread God’s Word across the world and here in Northern Ireland.

Let us continue to meditate on Scripture, drawing nourishment from its truths, and support the mission of the Bible Society NI in making the Bible accessible to all.
