A Song About Happiness, Pt. 2

The Songs of Our Savior

Preached by: Phill Howell | 06/06/21

Scripture/Text: Psalms 1 & 2; The big idea for this weeks sermon from Psalms 1 & 2 is that these first two Psalms present two different ways of speaking about the blessed, happy person. Psalm 1 introduces the contrast between the righteous person who lives in accordance with God's pattern for humanity, and the wicked who reject God's instruction. Psalm 2 presents the blessed person as the one who takes refuge in God's King by submitting themselves to his rule, while the wicked are those who plot in vain against God's unshakable purposes. These introductory Psalms, which are central to understanding the entire Psalter, are also crucial for understanding Jesus as God's true anointed King, the Son of God.
