Psalm 25 Part 1

 

Summary:

We introduced the extraordinary acrostic Psalm 119 tonight and explored verses 17-24 as they are part of the Thursday Week I Daytime Office.  We explored the psalmist's prayer to have their eyes opened to see the wonders of God's law and how our eyes are opened.  We discussed the concept of being a sojourner in this world and made some cross references to the Beatitudes.

We then began our exposition of Psalm 25.  We noted that it addressed major themes of prayer such as recollection and contemplation.  We looked at issues of justice and persecution and examples of Satan as our accuser.  We cited the need to always ask for our eyes to be opened to see what we do not see and explored the connection between God being good and His showing sinners the way.
