Life has a way of being less two dimensional and more multifaceted than we give it credit. There are depths of emotions, textures of relating, sorrows as deep as a canyon, along with joys that soar higher than a mountain top - and everything in between. How are we to navigate such a complex life, all the while loving and enjoying God? Insert the Psalms from the Bible. Within these ancient and poetic musings, we find a melody that resonates with modern rhymes and reasons of life. Join us as we walk through selected Psalm and hear the vintage songs with a modern message.
TITLE- The Good News Life
Introduction Video on Psalms:
Luke 24:44 - 44 Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
Psalm 1:1 - 1 Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
Proverbs 15:12 - 12 A scoffer does not like to be reproved;he will not go to the wise.
Proverbs 24:9 - 9 The devising of folly is sin,
and the scoffer is an abomination to mankind.
2 Corinthians 5:21 - 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Galatians 5:17 - 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
Psalm 1:2 - 2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
QUOTE - “The matter is quite simple. The bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly. Take any words in the New Testament and forget everything except pledging yourself to act accordingly. My God, you will say, if I do that my whole life will be ruined. How would I ever get on in the world? Herein lies the real place of Christian scholarship. Christian scholarship is the Church’s prodigious invention to defend itself against the Bible, to ensure that we can continue to be good Christians without the Bible coming too close. Oh, priceless scholarship, what would we do without you? Dreadful it is to fall into the hands of the living God. Yes it is even dreadful to be alone with the New Testament.”? Søren Kierkegaard
Psalm 1:3 - 3 He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
Acts 17:26 - 26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,
John 7:38 - 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
Jeremiah 17:8 - 8 He is like a tree planted by water,that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Psalm 1:4-5 - 4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
Psalm 1:6 - 6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,but the way of the wicked will perish.
