Psalm 120
Jul 03, 2005 am - Today, with God's help, we will begin to study Psalms 120-134. The numbers were not chosen at random, but they belong together in a special way. If you read the caption on each one, you'll find it is A Song of Degrees or maybe, A Song of Ascents. Do you know what the words mean? The degrees are not ... More >>>

Psalm 121
Jul 10, 2005 am - If you look at our Trinity Hymnal, you'll find the hymns arranged under theological headings (the glory of God, the death of Christ, and conflict with sin, for example). It's laid out this way because, for the most part, Presbyterian and other Reformed Christians don't follow the church calendar. ... More >>>

Psalm 122
Jul 24, 2005 am - Psalms 120-134 are sometimes called Pilgrim Psalms or Songs of Pilgrimage. These are good names for them because they were sung by the people of Israel as they made their way up to Jerusalem to observe Passover, Pentecost, or the Feast of Booths. If the pilgrim were a worldly man, he would take ... More >>>

Psalm 123
Jul 31, 2005 am - What do you do when the world looks down on you? Perhaps you feel this way because you're a baby; you're so self-centered that you take everything personally, you magnify ever little mistake into a capital crime, and you think every whispered conversation has got to be about you. Psychologists call ... More >>>

Aug 07, 2005 am - Do you ever watch Jeopardy? Alex Trebec has been its host for many years, but I'm old enough to remember when Art Fleming did the honors. I can't say why I remember him from forty years ago, but I do remember him. In any event, Jeopardy is a quiz show with a difference: Instead of starting with ... More >>>

Psalm 125
Aug 14, 2005 am - Do you know why David chose Jerusalem to be his capital? Being a wise and godly man, I suppose he had many reasons for his choice. One must have been religious: Jerusalem used to be called, Salem, and long ago, a king ruled there by the name of Melchizedek. The man was also a priest, but not the ... More >>>

Psalm 126
Aug 21, 2005 am - The teaching of Psalm 126 can be summed up in one word: tension. Not the stress you feel when you lose your job or you can't pay your bills, but the contradiction in the middle of every believer's life. The composer of the hymn and the people who sang it keenly felt this tension. In vv.1-3 they ... More >>>

Psalm 127
Aug 28, 2005 am - Everything you have is a gift. Some of the gifts are so big you might not notice them. Take the sun for example. It provides the light, heat, food, and water without which you could not survive. But survival is not the half of what it does for you. Think of all the happy times you've had in the ... More >>>

Psalm 128
Sep 04, 2005 am - Psalm 128 is all about happiness. It is not the shallow and short-lived happiness that any fool can enjoy now-and-then, but the real thing: the happiness of heaven on earth. To some people, God is against happiness-they think nothing pleases Him more than forbidding fun and lowering the boom on ... More >>>

Psalm 129
Sep 11, 2005 am - If I asked you to sum up the Christian life in one word, what would it be? Most of you-I believe-would select a positive word, maybe blessed or holy, forgiven or hopeful. These are all fine choices and capture a big part of the life we have in Christ. But 'a big part' of a thing is not the whole ... More >>>
