“A Song About David’s Deliverance”
The big idea of this week's sermon from Psalms 18:1-50 is that David’s passionate praise is the result of perfection, promises, and protection. As the longest psalm attributed to David, it can be considered David’s magnum opus. Psalm 18, both in structure and in content, teaches us how to speak to God as delivered people who love Him. Ultimately, we see that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ fulfills Psalm 18.
