Bible Talks from Psalms



What Does It Mean To Be Human

Preached on May 10, 2020
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 8

God has uniquely blessed us humans to rule this world under Him. But everything hoped for us fallen humans is realised in Christ.


Passing The Baton

Preached on June 30, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 78:1-8

Psalm 78 is a call for Christians in every age to remember and value what God has done for us in Jesus Christ on the cross and in His resurrection, and to see the importance of passing that message on to the next generation, so more and more people will know the faithfulness of our great God.


The Joy of the Nations

Preached on June 30, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 67

We finish our series in the Psalms this week looking at God’s heart for the nations to know him. When people are happy they sing and they praise whatever has caused their joy, and here we explore God’s intention to bless his people, and those who don’t yet know him.


Only The Good Die Young

Preached on June 23, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 73:1-28

Asaph struggles with how can God be good to be his people, when those who defy God are the ones blessed.
That tension is only resolved when he enters God`s sanctuary and realises their destiny and his own.


Only the Good Die Young

Preached on June 23, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 73

We’ve all seen injustice in the world and wondered where God is in all the mess. This is what the author of Psalm 73 is wrestling with in his own life, trying to understand how God can be good while the godless seem to go on unhindered – even promoted! Clarity is needed to see the world properly, and thank God he gives it to us when we are willing to see things from his perspective.


Delighting in God’s Voice

Preached on June 16, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 19

In a world full of competing voices it is hard to know who or what to listen to. Psalm 19 majestically accounts for how God speaks to us today. It reminds us powerfully the importance of tuning into God's voice and having Gods word as our joy and anchor.


Tuning into His Majesty’s Voice!

Preached on June 16, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 19:1-14

Psalm 19 tells us that God has revealed his glory to the world via the book of creation. He has also revealed his will to his people via the book of Scripture.
As we mediate on both we will please the Lord, our rock and our redeemer.

Teach Us To Number Our Days (Death)

Preached on June 9, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 90:1-17

There’s nothing more real than death. Thankfully the Bible gives us real answers to real questions from a real God as we live real lives. In Psalm 90, Moses makes three things abundantly clear: that humans are mortal compared to the eternal God; that towards sinful humans God is angry; and for insecure humans, God offers security.


Desperate For A Clean Slate (Doctrine of Sin and Grace)

Preached on June 2, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 51:1-19

David’s cry for mercy follows his awareness of his Sin toward Bathsheba and Uriah.
His hope is based on the fact that God will not despise a broken and contrite heart.


Desperate for a Clean Slate

Preached on June 2, 2019
Speaker:
Bible Text: Psalm 51

The sad truth about leaders is that they sometimes fall – and fall hard. This is David’s story. In this Psalm we see why we can speak of David as a child of God, a brother in Christ, and a man who made it to the Kingdom of God. His life wasn’t perfect, but it’s what he did with his sin that made all the difference.
