A Song About Security for the King
Embassy member David Marus preaches this Sunday (November 27, 2022) on Psalm 61. The 61st sermon in the Psalm series, David’s big idea is that king David’s prayer for the source of his security is the answer for the source of our security. From the three requests of security that the psalmist makes, we see that the gospel of Jesus Christ is what ultimately secures us, the great King and foundational cornerstone of our lives. The Scripture readings from our worship service were from Psalms 42-43, Matthew 7:24-29, and 1 Timothy 6:15-16.
- How do we know God is always good, no matter the circumstance? What are other examples in the word?
