Introduction. 

This series focuses on seven songs from the Hymnal of Scripture—the Psalms. This collection was written and compiled over a period of perhaps 1,000 years. King David wrote 75 of the Psalms. Asaph and the sons of Koreh were also major contributors, while Solomon, Moses, Heman, and Ethan are also named. In 48 cases, the author is not identified. The seven psalms in this study have a survival theme. In each one, the human author expresses some desperate longing or need. We can identify with these feelings of abandonment, fear, guilt, and distress. These honest songs have much to teach us about how God works during such times.

Introduction. 

We Have a Valuable Treasure (2 Cor. 4:5–12) (Judges 6:11-25)

To begin with, God has made us the way we are so that we can do the work He wants us to do. God said of Paul, “He is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles” (Acts 9:15).

Introduction. 

This parable deals with the content of our prayers. Here are two men who went to the Temple. The Pharisee was ostentatious in his posture during prayer, by implication raising his eyes to heaven (see v. 13). How important it is that we approach God humbly. When we refer to ourselves in prayer, it should be to confess our sins, not boast of our virtues!

Outwardly, the Pharisee was holy. He lived a good, religious, moral way of life. Yet God had no time for his self-centred gratitude. The tax collector (or ‘publican’) on the other hand, just beat his breast, saying ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ This second man ‘humbled himself’ and went home ‘justified’ (v. 14)—that is, God proclaimed him as righteous in his sight. Why? Because of his humility before God. The Pharisee, however, was still in his sins, however good he appeared to men.

Introduction. 

If we want to understand the role and function of the local church, the example given to us by the first church, as outlined in Acts 2:36-47, is a good starting point. As Jesus prepared His disciples for the establishment of His Church, Acts gives us a great historical understanding of the church but also practical steps of application. We will look at 10 essential functions of church from Acts 2:36-47.
