Psalm 8. The most important question in life is, “What do you think of Christ?” The second most important question is found in verse 4 of Psalm 8, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” God’s answer asserts that He created us to have dominion, to be royalty. That was His intent but something went awry. Sin has dethroned and defiled God’s creation. How can it be restored? More specifically how can we live up to our full potential? Pastor Barry shares the answer found in this Psalm.
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.
