Wash with Word



How shall a person be cleansed from sin? By guarding their way with the Word of God. We cover a lot of ground for this Bible study as we look a lot of Psalms that are examples of doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness.

Ephesians 5:25-27 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Brad’s thought verses: Philippians 4:6-8 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 Romans 12:1-2 Psalm 19:12-14 Psalm 139:23-24
Doctrine: Psalm 68:5-6 Psalm 103:8-13 Psalm 136:1
Reproof: Psalm 27:1 Psalm 42:11 Psalm 121:1-2
Correction: Psalm 19:12-14 Psalm 139:23-24
Instruction in Righteousness: Psalm 37:4-5, 23-24 Psalm 118:8, 24

A Mighty Fortress For Us



Be Still. God is the only refuge worthy of trusting when all is else is going wrong. Whether natural disaster or human attacks, the LORD is Hosts is the safe place to be. He will not leave His people alone.

Forgiven for Relationship



If the LORD did a countdown of our sins, who would be safe? But instead, the LORD offers forgiveness, desiring to be reconciled to sinners. And as sinners consider the means by which a holy, righteous God punished sin and brought mercy to sinners, we grow in fear and reverence toward such a wise, loving, and faithful God. The LORD brought together justice and mercy at the cross of Jesus Christ, His Son.

Repent to Worship



This little psalm flows out of a spiritual disaster for David and all Israel. But you need not to have murdered someone to utilize and value this gem of a prayer to the LORD. This psalm guides us in how to confess our sin and ask for restoration from God toward worship of His greatness.
For background, read 2 Samuel 11-12. And for follow-up, read Psalm 32.

The Righteousness of God



The poetry of the Psalms can be hard for non-Hebrew readers to understand at times. But the middle section of Psalm 36 crosses the language barrier, even if not all the words do. The covenant love and righteousness of the LORD is extolled in superlatives to remind us why we should trust our lives and joys to His capable hands even when we don’t understand His decisions.

Bow to the King



Which king reigns?
What we see is not all that is going on. There is more at work. But what is revealed from the council room of heaven is even more important. The conversation between Father and Son determines the outcome of the question, which King reigns? We must choose how to respond to this important intel. Believe what we see or believe what is revealed.

Ponder the Blessing



The gospel is simple enough for a child yet profound enough to challenge the elders for all of their years. And the Scriptures reward those who seek, no matter how many times the seekers return to the fountain. Psalm 1 reminds us that God and His Word are worth the effort of chewing on His truth. At the start of a new year, let’s no falter in our pursuit of letting God’s Words change us.

Messiah in Psalms



David was a prophet in that the Spirit revealed things about David’s superlative descendant as David wrote his poetry for the Psalter.  The psalms are rich in messages about the Messiah.  Psalm 110 stands above many in the mysteries it reveals about the coming King and Priest and Judge.  We spend a few minutes unpacking the treasurers of Jesus placed within Psalm 110.

Who will you follow?



Psalm 2 builds on the foundation left by Psalm 1. In light of eternity, don’t be foolish and rebel against the Word of God. He has shown what the future holds. Don’t be on the wrong side of history. God wins. Always has and always will. Circumstances may deceived many to think that people can redefine good and evil. But the patience of God will one one day be done, and justice will come from heaven through the Son on earth. Be wise. Be ready for that day. The beginning of wisdom prepares us for the end. Love Him with rejoicing. One day, He will make all things right.

Where are you going?



Psalm 1 is a good place to start. The contrast is laid before us. The ways of the ungodly are easier to slide into than you think but the end is disaster. But the opposite is to delight in having relationship with the LORD through His Word and His Spirit. Which will you choose today?
