Psalm 51: New Hearts, Our Gravest Peril, Opened Lips, and Renewed Sacrifices

We continue and conclude our study of Psalm 51 by showing how it is God's mercy to show us our sins and how this psalm appeals to both parts of the New Covenant.  We examine the grave danger of being cast away by God and losing the Holy Spirit as well as consider why God may not call some people now.

We move on to how recognizing our own sinfulness makes us capable of instructing others in righteousness without judgment and the need to pursue holiness in order to be able to proclaim holiness without hypocrisy.  We look at the idea and an example of a constructively broken spirit and how having a right heart allows us to offer pleasing sacrifices to God.

Psalm 42: Thirsting for God

We begin our exploration of Psalm 42 by learning about the sons of Korah and examining the theme of God as the source of living water in both the Old and New Testament.  We then discuss several dimensions of our relationship with God including our love and desire for Him, our honesty with Him, and how our hearts and heads can get out of sync in our relationship with Him.

Psalm 16: The Path of Life

Psalm 16 points to Jesus' death and resurrection.  It also points us to Him as the path of life, our inheritance, our everything.  We examine the difference between the Israelite and Christian perspectives on this psalm as well as some of its cultural and linguistic nuances.  We then stopped recording and prayed the Thursday Night Office for which this is the psalm.

Purification, Humility, Repentance, and Judgment in James 4:8-12

We start tonight with a question about going beyond superficial Christianity into Christian maturity and walking with the Saints.  We next continue with the themes of purification as we approach God, humbling ourselves before God, and the interaction of humility and judgment.  We end introducing a discussion on self-will.
