PP031 How to Get out of Yourself

Martin Luther aptly described our sinful nature as “so deeply curved in on itself that it wickedly seeks all things, even God, for its own sake.” While it is vital to appreciate God’s interest in us as individuals, it is also crucial to remember the universe isn’t all about me. God has a big thing going on, and the gospel invites us to be a part of it. This Psalm started out with David speaking about “my soul.” Then he began to speak about “us” and “those who fear” the Lord. Now at the end of the Psalm, he broadens his horizon to embrace the angels and all of God’s creatorial works. Get out of yourself and join in with nature’s song!


Scriptures Referenced: Ps 103:20-22; 111:2; Gal 2:20

PP028 What You Think of God is the Most Important Thing About You

People created in the image of God cannot have a proper assessment of themselves without a proper assessment of God. And people who were created to glorify God and enjoy Him forever cannot do so without truly knowing God. So what you think about God is not only important, it is the most important thing about you. Continuing our journey through Psalm 103, we learn what it unfolds concerning God’s character – and what that means for you and me.


Scriptures Referenced: Ex 34:5-6; Ps 89:14; 103:6-10; Lk 4:16-19; Rom 12:12-21

PP019 Extraordinary Worship, or Extra Ordinary?

At a key transition in his letter to the Romans, the apostle Paul defines true worship as Christians offering their bodies to God as living sacrifices. This shocking call to offer our bodies tells us that our worship is to be both (1) extraordinary (we need to give God our very selves, not just our stuff) and (2) ordinary (even the most mundane parts of our bodily existence are part of our worship). The rest of Paul’s letter spells out what a life of worship lived by the power of the gospel looks like. Even our eating and exercise can be done in worship to God. Paul casts an exciting vision — you don’t want to miss it!

Scriptures Referenced: Rom 5:19; 6:13; 12:1-2, 3-8; 14:4, 18; Rom 12-15
