Sermons on Psalms

Is It Irrational to Believe in the Existence of God?

Science and the Bible–can the two coexist? Modern society considers science and faith to be dichotomous (opposed to one another or entirely different). When speaking of science, people talk about “thinking, evidence and rational justification of facts.” On the other hand, people consider faith to be all about “evading evidence and clinging to non-rationality.” Is it possible that the secularists are wrong and that a Christian worldview isn’t less rational but actually more rational?

Finding Reasons to be Thankful

In this sermon, I want us to focus on God’s blessings and goodness to us, and how we should respond in return. In Psalm 107, the psalmist gives us several pictures of how God sees His children and the struggles that they are facing. We will take time to examine each of these word pictures and observe how we too are struggling in much the same way today. Within each of these word pictures, we will see what God promises to do for us and how He hopes we will respond.

Worship and the Special Revelation of God

Last week, we considered God’s general revelation. We looked at some aspects of creation and determined that creation demands a Creator. So as we look once again at Psalm 19 this morning, I want us to focus specifically on the role of God’s special revelation in our worship. And as we study this psalm, I want us to notice that worship is not just a physical activity but also a spiritual attitude and cleansing.

Worship And the General Revelation Of God

General Revelation refers to the knowledge that we have as the result of God creating the cosmos and the moral conscience within each human being. In response to God’s general revelation, our first priority as believers when it comes to worship is to repent of our sins—asking God to ‘first clean the inside’ of my life. Our second priority is to discover who God is because it is easy to worship creation rather than the Creator. And finally, we need to realize today that it does not matter who we are or where we live on planet earth, we have no excuse to NOT worship God.
