Re: Songs for Our Temple (Week 17: Ps. 49-51)

PSALMS 49 This chapter deals with the prosperity of the wicked and the misfortunes of the righteous. I see this a lot in the world today, where the unbeliever seems to be living in financial comfort, and the firm believer may be struggling with their finances. Looking at the susses of others may cause us to envy them and could cause us to slip away from their relationship with Jesus Christ. So we need to focus on Christ, not put our focus on others. If I were wealthy, I feel that I might depend more on my wealth than on Jesus Christ; I’ve learned to be content and be a good steward of what God has given me.

PSALMS 50 The title in my bible has “God comes to Judge.” What is God judging? I read a story about a preacher who preached for fifteen minutes on a leg, and he fell. Then he got up and did the same thing, but he had the same result on the other leg. What was his point for this illustration? He said that we need a two-legged gospel of faith and obedience. This Psalms demands a faith that acts in obedience to God.

PSALMS 51 This Psalms is the fourth and the best of the seven ‘penitential psalms. This confession comes from David’s blackest moments of self-knowledge, yet it explores the depths of his guilt and some of the farthest reaches of salvation. I believe sometimes we need to take a look back at our lives to make sure we haven’t drifted away from a holy relationship with God.

When was the last time you renewed your spiritual life? What power there is in the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ! We are often pleased with the forgiveness of our sins, but we honor God with them? is it because we know better, so we confess like David has done here in this psalms?
