Solomon wrote that there is nothing new under the sun. But in Psalm 96 we are told we have a new reason to sing, to sing a new song, for something great has happened, namely salvation has come. Linda McCrary sings "Bless the Lord, Salvation has Come". The 1517 Podcast Network (https://www.1517.org/podcasts) https://www.1517.org/donate
All creation groans under the weight of sin, greed, and despair. As we enter into the season of Lent we have good reasons for hope. The greatest is that we shall see our Savior and rfully realize the love that is ours for eternity. A love which we have received, not earned, and great and mysterious things await us forever. Colin Heinrich sings "Face to Face". Support the Show -(https://www.1517.org/donate) The 1517 Podcast Network (https://www.1517.org/podcasts)
In the midst of our worship, God admonishes us to remember His goodness, and don't harden our hearts like our ancestors when they forgot God in the wilderness. Instead, we are invited to enter in, give thanks and rest in the finished work of our Creator, Redeemer and Friend. The talented Andrea Hammond sings "Enter In".
Psalm 30 is a Psalm for the dedication of the temple. However, it doesn't mention the temple and seemingly is unrelated to this subject. What gives? Once again Chad makes sense of all this in this eye opening episode. Colin Heinrich sings "By Your Love and Grace alone".
The second half of Psalm 89 takes a turn from promise to ruin. And in the midst of this downfall, King David accuses God of causing all the desolations. What is there for us to learn from this, especially when it seems like God has forsaken His own? Chad points us to the Messiah, the Man of Sorrows. Izzi Ray sings "Man of Sorrows".
In part 1 of Psalm 89, we hear of David wanting to build a house for the Lord to dwell, but God has bigger plans, and makes a promise to David that from his lineage will come the Messiah of the world. Izzi Ray sings "Waiting on Your Promise".
Life can get so complicated, so full of mind numbing details and various pains that it's easy to wish we lived in a simpler time. Chad talk about unchanging rule of God. THe God who is unmoved by storms, the God we can draw near to and rest. Colin Heinrich sings "Your Throne Remains".
As we finish Advent and celebrate Christmas, we remember that we are still waiting in hope for the return of our Savior. In this time, we face seasons of suffering and can feel abandoned by God. Chad reminds of us the truth of Christ becoming man and what it means to belong to Him. John Andrew Schreiner sings "Why Have You Forsaken Me".
Who can ascend the holy mountain? Who can enter the gates of the eternal city? The one whose hands are clean. The one with the pure heart. Oh boy... Chad breaks this down and encourages with eternal truths. And the great Chris Lizotte sings "Into Eternity".
In this episode Chad shows us that the problem of sin starts long before we are born, and the consequences are devastating. We meditate on the beauty of Christ suffering on our behalf, that we may be covered with mercy and made whole. Izzy Ray sings "Have Mercy On Me"
Better off spending one day in the courts of heaven with our loving God than a hundred anywhere else. The object of our love is not the gifts of God, but the Giver Himself. Happy Thanksgiving! Colin Heinrich sings "On Earth as it is in Heaven".
Psalm 81 is another description of the errors of God’s people throughout history. In this Psalm we see God’s loving frustration with His people when He speaks to them but they won’t listen, even when he blesses them over and over. Izzi Ray sings “Honey From The Rock” .
