Re: Songs for Our Temple (Week 8: Psalms 22-24)

I was amazed at how these three chapters of Psalms followed a sequence of events. Psalms 22, the reason for our Hope. Psalms 24, the promise of our Hope. Finally, Psalms 24 is the reward of our Hope. First, Psalms 22 can carry the name Psalms of the cross, and even Jesus quoted the first verse. What we see here is that the world may be against you, wanting to get rid of you for your belief in Father up above, and you feel alone in this world. Here in Psalms 23, you can find the great shepherd with his promise of comfort, as you journey through this sinful world. Finally, Psalms 24 is the reward and reason for our commitment to follow Jesus Christ. in conclusion our motivation for our steadfast commitment is found in the Hope of our salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. So, sing aloud Psalms 24:8-10.

After listening to Jim and reading Psalm 22, it felt more relevant than ever. So much like our lives. Am I misinterpreting that David is almost totally different in his thoughts in the bebinning than the end? Or was he almost bargaining like we sometimes find ourselves doing as well?

I believe Christ changed his heart. I think every time David felt discouraged, he turned to God. Like we should do and not turn to others’ things, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit as our helper in times of trouble.

For by turning to others we are so often discouraged, but with God, never. This is a bit off the track, and I’m probably the only one who didn’t know this but I found this interesting. Concerning the oil in Psalm 23….”it was customary in hot climates to anoint the body with oil to protect it from excessive perspiration. When mixed with perfume, the oil imparted a delightfully refreshing and invigorating sensation. Athletes anointed their bodies as a matter of course before running a race. As the body, therefore, anointed with oil was refreshed, invigorated, and better fitted for action, so the Lord would anoint His “sheep” with the Holy Spirit, Whom oil symbolizes, to fit them to engage more freely in His service and run in the way He directs—in heavenly fellowship with Him.”

It is amazing seeing the transformation from the beginning to the end of Ps. 22, isn’t it? I love that about many of the Psalms — they invite us to start in our places of desperation and then see how God solves that desperation over time. In this case, over a very long time (at least in full), since the true fulfillment of it is in Jesus’s himself, who would be forsaken and have his clothes divided that we might experience God’s peace and victory…
