Tomorrow morning at GBC we will begin a new sermon series that I’ve entitled, “Songs for the Heart” — a brief (2-month) series on a variety of Psalms.
When individuals are discouraged, weary, perplexed, or sad and grieving, they often turn to the Psalms to have their hope, encouragement, and confidence in God restored. And that is exactly why we will be looking at these Psalms.
Among the Psalms we will be considering are Psalms 15, 27, 30, 63, 112, and 130 (and perhaps one or two more). My prayer is that our hearts will be stimulated to a deeper trust in and devotion to the Lord as we make our way through these Psalms.
We begin the series tomorrow with a message entitled, “Life with God” (Psalm 15).
O LORD, who may abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors those who fear the LORD;
He swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He does not put out his money at interest,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.
