A Song For The Limited - Psalm 90

August 6, 2023 • Ken Flower • Psalm 90

Join us on a journey through the Psalms, as we examine the full range of human emotions expressed in these Biblical songs. We have a special guest, Ken Flower, Lead Pastor of Meadowbrook Church, to guide us in our exploration of the Psalms and their teachings. Listen in as we learn about God's heart, the heart of the scriptures, and our own hearts, and how to live with a consciousness of our limited time and an appetite for eternity.

Discover the inherent human longing for immortality and the tension of living in our limited, transient lives. We'll discuss stories from science and mythology, illustrating our quest for eternal youth and life. Drawing on Moses' wisdom from Psalm 90, we'll discuss how to navigate the paradox of our ephemeral existence and our desire for eternity. As we explore our existence marked by futility and transience, we'll discuss the tension between our mortality and the eternity we were created for. Listen as we unravel the concept of God's anger as an expression of love for his creation and how this understanding can help us live in peace with our mortality. Stay with us as we reflect on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the guarantee of eternal life it brings, and the profound impact this hope can have on our daily lives.

Declaring Dependence On God - Psalm 2

August 27, 2023 • Chris Rich • Psalm 2

How well do we truly know the heart of God? Journey with us and our guest, Pastor Chris Rich, as we plunge into the profound depths of the Psalms - a divine symphony of human emotions revealing timeless wisdom about God. Hold tight as we navigate the contrasting paths of wisdom and rebellion, painted vividly by the nations' responses to God's leadership throughout the Bible. Witness the rebellious nations as they rage against the Lord, choosing revolt over worship. Together we'll traverse through the wise and wicked paths, reflecting on the world's response to God's leadership since the dawn of the Bible. We'll explore God's scorn of the insolent nations, and what it signifies about the humility we must embody when surrendering to God's rule. We'll probe the prophecy of a king in Psalm 2, witnessing its fulfillment in Jesus Christ's life, a testament to God's promise of a future devoid of sin, suffering, and tears. Finally, we'll examine the two paths set before us, one leading to ruin and the other to life, reflecting on Jesus's mission to shatter sin's bonds and grant us freedom and life. We'll conclude with a sincere prayer of thanksgiving for God's word, His benevolent warning, and the perfect life Jesus led on our behalf. ---------- Psalms, Bible, Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, Rebellion, Authority, Nations, Wisdom, Dignity, Honor, Respect, Humility, Prophecy, Jesus Christ, Death, Sin, Suffering, Tears, Destruction, Life, Freedom, Doxa Church, Redmond

My Helper and Keeper - Psalm 121

August 20, 2023 • Alex Early • Psalm 121

Ever found yourself wrestling with life's hardest questions, looking for answers that seem just out of reach? Join us as we seek guidance from an unlikely place - Psalm 121 - led by the insightful Pastor Alex Early from Redemption Church. Pastor Alex helps us navigate the transformative power of the Psalms, these beautifully raw expressions of human emotions, with a special focus on Psalm 121. He walks us through the comforting imagery of the Lord as our protector and keeper, offering us a beacon of hope in our darkest times. Familiar with the phrase "I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?" Well, we dive into this powerful Psalm of Ascension. We discuss its profound implications in our modern lives, particularly in our pursuit of salvation, and how we often turn to false idols in lieu of the true source of salvation: God. We share personal stories, reflections, and insights on this transformative journey up the metaphorical mountain to Jerusalem, bringing the scripture alive in the context of our contemporary lives.  ----------- Psalm 121, Pastor Alex Early, Doxa Church, Redemption Church, Bible, Psalms, Human Emotion, False Idols, Salvation, Divine Protection, Lord, Keeper, Shade, Evil, Faithfulness, Struggles, Thanksgiving, Prayer
