Pastor Post - July 7, 2020
This Sunday we will dig into one of the most cherished passages in the Bible – the 23rd Psalm.
Often we hear Psalm 23 at funerals. It is entirely appropriate in that setting, and it has brought comfort and hope to millions who grieve. Yet Psalm 23 is not primarily about death, but about knowing God.
David begins with the words, “The Lord is…” Then, for the rest of the Psalm, he proceeds to tell us who God is. And what we will see on Sunday is that he is “Our Good Shepherd…Our Gracious Host.”
Pick up your Bible this week and read Psalm 23 as if you were reading it for the first time. Let it hit you afresh and anew. Pray it to the Lord. And notice the two images of God in verses 1-4 and verses 5-6.
As we move into the heart of the summer, let me again thank you for your faithfulness during these difficult days. Your unity and commitment to the Lord and his church have really shone during this trying time. As Psalm 23 reminds us, even as we walk through dark valleys, we don’t do so alone. God is with you. He loves you, and so do your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Be in prayer for this Sunday. I’ll see you then, in person or online.
By His Grace, For His Glory, To The Nations,
Dr. Thurman Hayes, Jr.
