Sermon: Worship God and Understand Our Broken World (Psalm 73)
Updated: Mar 24
In Psalm 73, the Psalmist is overburdened by the reality that wicked people around him are prospering and succeeding in life, while faithful followers of Yahweh are experiencing pain and suffering. But his thought process takes a turn in verses 16 and 17:
But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end.
In this study, we take a look at what it was about the sanctuary, the place of corporate worship, which reoriented the Psalmist's mind from confusion to clarity.
This sermon was the second of two sermons preached at Hume Presbyterian Church on the theme of worship and the Christian life in the Psalms. To listen to the first sermon on Psalm 63, click here.
