Psalm 116. Rebellion and arrogance come from an ungrateful spirit. Gratitude must be cultivated in our lives. It is the foundation on which to build a healthy and wholesome life.
In this series, The
Days Psalms of our Lives, Pastor Barry explains the text of six Psalms with clarity and passion revealing their timeless wisdom for every day living. Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, the Psalms model how we can be honest and vulnerable in voicing our own petitions and praises to God, connecting His Word to a whole spectrum of human emotions and experiences. The Psalmists’ struggles and triumphs will bring us face-to-face with God’s promises and purposes resulting in heartfelt praise and humble confession in our own spiritual formation. PLEASE NOTE: Each of the sermons in this series will be introduced by a segment of the short film by Fourth Line Films that documents the friendship between Bono, of the band U2, and Eugene Peterson, author of Bible translation The Message, revolving around their common interest in the Psalms.
