Sermons on Psalms

Psalms – Psalm 46

Sunday, August 18: Psalms Psalm 46 Be still and know that I am God. Some of you might remember an old song from the 60’s: He’s Got the Whole World in his Hands. Don’t try to sing it or even hum it. It can drive you crazy if you can’t get the tune out of […]

Psalms – Psalm 133

Sunday, August 11: Psalms Psalm 133 We’re going to be continuing our sermon series on the Psalms and looking at Psalm 133, a brief Psalm on the goodness of unity. There are familiar adages that say, “Two heads are better than one.” or “United we stand, divided we fall.” We get that it’s better not […]

Psalms – Psalm 40

Sunday, August 4: Psalms Psalm 40 This week we are going to take a look at Psalm 40. The overarching theme within Psalm 40 is the work of Christ in our waiting. We are called to wait on the Lord, but what does waiting on the Lord even look like? It’s one of those commonly used “christian-ese” […]

Psalms – Psalm 137

Sunday, July 28: Psalms Psalm 137 This week, we are continuing our theme of praying The Psalms. Last week, we looked at Psalm 88—a raw, emotional outpour to the LORD. This week, we are looking at another emotionally charged psalm: Psalm 137. Psalm 137:9 says, “Blessed shall be he who takes your little ones and […]

Psalms – Psalm 88

Sunday, July 21: Psalms Psalm 88 In his book, Answering God, Eugene Peterson notes that The Psalms differ from most of the Scriptures in that they are often not written about God, but rather to God. He writes:“Our habit is to talk about God, not to him. We love discussing God. The Psalms resist these […]

Psalms – Psalm 121

Sunday, July 14: Psalms Psalm 121 Psalm 121 has been called the traveler’s Psalm, or the Soldier’s Psalm, because it engages with the reality that sometimes we run into tough spots. The path gets hard, there are uncertainties, there are questions of how we’ll even make it through, and it can seem like there’s no […]

Psalms – Psalm 27

Sunday, July 7: Psalms Psalm 27 What would you say is the most common command in Scripture? Before you answer I’ll tell what it’s not. It’s not for us to be more loving. That may be at the center of God’s heart for us but that’s not his most frequent instruction. It’s also not to be less […]

Psalms – Psalm 1

Sunday, June 30: Psalms Psalm 1 The Principle of the Path by pastor and writer Andy Stanley is one of my favorite books. It’s about the many paths available to us in life that lead to various destinations. Some are good. Some are bad. Some lead to joy and others, sadly, lead to pain and heartache. The […]

Psalms – Psalm 34

Sunday, June 23: Psalms Psalm 34 We’re kicking off our Summer series in the Psalms by reading a Psalm of David in a pretty strange time of his life. He’s coming off of a pretty big military victory, he’s been honoring God with his words and with his deeds, when out of nowhere, his friends become his […]
