The Psalms

Appoint a Wicked Man Against Him (Part 1)

Psalm 109
How should we respond to evil? This is the first of two sermons that seek to answer that question by looking at Psalm 109. This is one of several psalms that are called imprecatory psalms. An imprecation is a spoken curse or an appeal to deity to bring down judgment upon someone else. How should we understand such portions of Scripture? And is there any application for us?

He Gives

Psalm 127
A roof over our heads, security, a job, kids…all of these things are common pursuits for American families. They aren’t bad things. In fact, they’re a good and important part of life. This psalm teaches us that God is the source of all good and he gives us good gifts. Why does God give us good things? The answer to this question can be the difference between idolatry and true worship.

The Shepherd and the Sheep

Psalm 23 & John 10
The 23rd Psalm is one of the best-known scriptures of all time. It has been used by believers for thousands of years for comfort, encouragement, and devotion, and with very good reason. The psalm tells us about ourselves, and, more importantly, about the Lord, and all the more so as we view David’s inspired words from the blessed perspective of living this side of the coming and work of the Good Shepherd Himself.
