One thing special about the Old Testament Psalms is we learn how real the writers were with God. In today’s sermon Jerry Croyts spoke on Psalm 3, and it this Psalm we learn that complaining to God is significantly different than complaining about God. Many of the Psalms also point us to Jesus, and teach us how our confidence can be in him.
Bible readers often consider Psalms on their own, as individual songs or poems or laments. In today’s sermon, Pastor Jerry Croyts concludes a two-part talk on Psalm 1 and 2. As he explains, these two Psalms most likely were written as one and were only divided into two by later editors. In Psalm 2, the author suggests we consider three conversations: one between the “kings of the earth”, a second is the contemplations of God in heaven, and then the psalmist himself is offering some thoughts to the reader.
We are pleased to have Jerry Croyts preaching today.
