“Worshipping in the Depths of Life”

HOST: Chris Clevenger



Show Notes:

  • Jews attended three feasts in Jerusalem every year: Passover (Spring), Pentecost (Early Summer), and Tabernacles (Autumn) (Exodus 23:14-19)
  • Traditionally they travelled in family or community groups to the city of David (Luke 2:41-52).
  • As they journey they sang the “Psalms of Ascent” (Psalm 120-134) to prepare for worship.
  • This psalm begins by referencing “the depths,” water so wide, expansive, and deep that the psalmist cannot escape himself. (cf. Psalm 69:1, 14)
  • The psalm itself takes us from the depths, to the courtroom, to the city walls, and then ultimately to the throne of Jehovah.
    • God Offers Attention (1-2)
    • God Offers Remission (3-4)
    • God Offers Anticipation (5-6)
    • God Offers Redemption (7-8)
