Psalms

The Gospel In Song

Psalm 1

Who Is The Man? • June 4, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Was the Bible primarily written so that we could be “the man”? What if we are blessed because in our exhaustion we gladly stepped aside to acknowledge someone else as the Man? Who you think of when you read the first four words of the book of Psalms matters in a profound way.

Psalm 2

KING Of Kings • June 11, 2017 • Michael McCracken

This week we look at why it is such good news for us that God is ultimately about the glory of Jesus.

Psalm 3

Save Me, O My God! • June 18, 2017 • Jon Paul Dennison

David's lament as he find himself running from his own son is the lament of the redeemed. Jesus himself echoes the laments of David throughout the Psalms when speaking of his enemies, his betrayer, and ultimately on the cross. As believers, our identification with this does not lead us to believing that David's grievances are resolved as we lament with him, but rather proves that we are looking to the same messiah he was.

Psalm 4

Fighting For Joy • June 25, 2017 • Michael McCracken

Joy isn’t what happens when life goes our way. Joy is what we fight for and cling to in the midst of it. In Psalm 4 we’ll take a look at how we wield the gospel in the fight for our joy and rest.

Psalm 5

Sufficient For The Day Is Its Own Trouble • July 2, 2017 • Michael McCracken

David shows us how communion with God makes us ready to flourish in the day that promises to have sufficient trouble.

Psalm 6

Not A Wasted Tear • July 9, 2017 • Michael McCracken

When discipleship is the goal there are no wasted seasons or emotions or experiences.

Psalm 7

God Our Refuge • July 16, 2017 • Jon Paul Dennison

David appeals to the righteousness of God when he can do no else to stop the persecution of his enemies. When he cries out to God to be his refuge, his protection, he appeals not to self-righteousness, but to the imputed righteousness of God he has been given by faith.

Psalm 8

Glory Thieves • July 23, 2017 • Michael McCracken

The truth is that God IS majestic AND glorious. The question is whether or not we actually believe it. In this text we find out that our primary problem in the flesh is that we can’t help but rob God of the glory due His name.

Psalm 9

A Broken World, God’s Glory, And Our Salvation • July 30, 2017 • Michael McCracken

This text actually forces us to deal with the age old question of why God would ordain that evil exist. Could it really be a gracious gift to those who call Him Father?
