Psa 19:10 More desirable than gold, Than much fine gold; And sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11 Also, Your servant is warned by them, In guarding them there is great reward.
Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward
Over the past several days we have looked at the meanings of verses 7-9.  They point us in the direction we are to go if we desire to serve Elohim with our whole hearts.  King David tells us there is nothing finer or more desirable than to observe to do His commands
Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
Psa 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Today's churchianty tells us we do not have to keep the commands because they have been done away with.  If you look at the context of the verses they use to support their claims their arguments fall away. 
Peter also warns us to be extremely careful how we interpret Paul as he is an extremely deep thinker and we can become confused in what he is saying.  Have you ever heard your preacher tell you this?
2Pe 3:15 and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also our beloved brother Sha’ul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him,
2Pe 3:16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand,1 which those who are untaught and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures. Footnote: 1See 1 Cor. 11:6.
2Pe 3:17 You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch, lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless,
Scripture tells us plainly the definition of sin is lawlessness or put It in Hebrew "Torahlessness" 
1Jn 3:4 Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

Something is definitely wrong in churchianity when they misrepresent what the Scriptures plainly teach.  Messiah Himself plainly taught the way to show our love of Him is through obedience to what?  To His commands.  Messiah only taught those things His Father said.  They were in agreement with the Old Testament.
If you want to study the words given at Mt Sinai you will find in actuality it was a covenant agreement given between a bridegroom and his bride.  It was a covenant given to a set-apart people who were to be a nation of priests.  Elohim's representatives on Earth. 
Joh 14:10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak from Myself. But the Father who stays in Me does His works.
Joh 14:11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, otherwise believe Me because of the works themselves.
Joh 14:12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.
Joh 14:13 "And whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son.
Joh 14:14 "If you ask whatever in My Name, I shall do it.
Joh 14:15 "If you love Me, you shall guard My commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6.
I have said previously my eyes were opened when I started to be obedient to the 7th day Sabbath.  I would encourage you to give it a try.  Some say "well I set one day in 7 aside to rest" or "my Sabbath is on such and such a day".  I have learned to observe to guard His commands.  What I do is ask what is the heart of Elohim in this matter.  Was He specific to what He desires?  If He was very specific in detailing the way He desires us to honor His command then we should be specific in our obedience to that command. 
He was very specific about how we are to not put anything before Him
He was very specific about the Sabbath.  In fact He warned us NOT TO FORGET.  In Daniel we are warned that in future there will be someone or some agency that will change the times.  In fact if you look at history it was the church of Rome who changed the day of Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday in honor of the sun.  The Roman church proudly states they did this after the council of Nicaea sometime after 300 AD.  It did not happen after the resurrection which is a lie and deception propagated to assuage our questions concerning when the resurrection actually took place.  The same applys to churchianity's holidays.  They actually took pagan festivals and added themes from churchianity to them to make the appear holy.  Isaiah tells us when we actually wake up will we say we have inherited lies and deception from our fathers.  Do you find the commands something to be desires?  Or do you turn away from them as something you don't need to follow because of grace?   Where do you stand?  Are you on shaky ground or solid?  Yes, Salvation is by faith alone.  But the demonstration of our love for Him is through obedience.  Now I will back up and take you to the Scriptures.
Exo 20:3 "You have no other mighty ones against My face.
Exo 20:4 "You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth,
Exo 20:5 you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
Exo 20:6 but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.
Exo 20:7 "You do not bring1 the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. Footnote: 1Or lift up, or take.
Exo 20:8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart.
Exo 20:9 "Six days you labour, and shall do all your work,
Exo 20:10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath1 of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. Footnote: 1There are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath.
Exo 20:11 "For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart.
Concerning the times:
an 7:25 and it speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones of the Most High, and it intends to change appointed times1 and law2, and they are given into its hand for a time and times and half a time. Footnotes: 1This is another word for festivals. 2Changing the law amounts to lawlessness. Read in 2 Thess. 2:3-12 about "the lawless one" and the "lawlessness" which would take over (indeed, it has already taken over!) in the set-apart place, and also about Messiah’s judgment upon the lawless "prophets" in Mt. 7:23, and the lawless "believers" in Mt. 13:41!

concerning adding pagan worship to the worship of Elohim
Deu 6:14 "Do not go after other mighty ones, the mighty ones of the peoples who are all around you,
Deu 6:15 for יהוה your Elohim is a jealous Ěl in your midst, lest the displeasure of יהוה your Elohim burn against you, then He shall destroy you from the face of the earth.
Deu 12:28 "Guard, and obey all these words which I command you, that it might be well with you and your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the eyes of יהוה your Elohim.
Deu 12:29 "When יהוה your Elohim does cut off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land,
Deu 12:30 guard yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire about their mighty ones, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their mighty ones? And let me do so too.’1 Footnote: 1See also 18:9, Lev. 18:3, Jer.10:2, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, and 1 Peter 4:3
Deu 12:31 "Do not do so to יהוה your Elohim, for every abomination which יהוה hates they have done to their mighty ones, for they even burn their sons and daughters in the fire to their mighty ones.

Deu 12:32 "All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.1 Footnote: 1See also 4:2, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19.

We are given ample warning not to take away from the Word of Elohim.  He remains the same yesterday, today and forever.  If He is telling us not to take away from His word and we are being told by churchianity we no longer have to worry about doing His Law, isn't that taking away from His word?  If we no longer observe His set-apart day of the Sabbath but rest on the 1st day of the week isn't that not only taking away from His word but also adding to it?
Some very interesting things we need to consider if we desire to follow Yahshua Messiah. 
Rev 3:15 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. Rev 3:16 "So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.
Mat 7:22 "Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’
Mat 7:23 "And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!’1 Footnote: 1 See v. 15.
