It is said that in other books of the Bible, God speaks to us, but in the Psalms, God speaks for us. The Psalms help us to express the ups and downs of life. We'll explore a different psalm over the summer and in this talk, Simon gives a brief introduction to the Psalms and why they are such a great treasure to us!
What does home mean to you? Jill helps us to see from Psalm 84 that if we've chosen to follow Jesus, our home is with God. This is a truth we need to know, even when the journeys of life take us into times of 'weeping' or difficulty. It is at these times that we're to dig into God and his goodness.
When we consider that God made every one of the countless stars and planets it is easy to think of ourselves as insignificant to him. In this talk Jonathan and Angela help us to focus on our significance to the God of creation, if we truly are known my God what should our response to this be?
The Psalms give us permission to Lament. In Psalm 13, David shows us how, in the depths of our Lament, to lift our eyes to Jesus to rejoice in his Unfailing Love.
