November 29, 2020"Better is One Day: Home is Where Your Heart Is" Psalm 84

All is Calm, All is Bright

It’s a strange Thanksgiving weekend coming up - unlike any other in most of our memories. That is why this Sunday’s message from Psalm 84 is so timely! In Psalm 84, the psalmist longs to be with God’s people going up to worship at the Temple. The annual Jewish festivals provided great opportunities to be together, to rejoice, to celebrate and to remember God’s faithfulness. One author wrote, “Longing is written all over this psalm.” The psalmist groans that he cannot go to celebrate in Jerusalem with God’s people. While many of us are unable to be with family or are unable to join for corporate worship this Thanksgiving, we will find that this passage provides enormous hope, wisdom, and comfort. The longing of Psalm 84 really reflects the longing for heaven. We long for the day when we can be in God’s presence and away from the suffering, sickness, and sin of this world. Tune in online or come on Sunday and join us as we consider how to find joy when we long to be with God’s people in the joy of God’s presence.

From Series: "All is Calm, All is Bright"

For the last six Sundays in 2020 and the first Sunday of 2021, we are going to study the final seven passages of Scripture that are part of our church “Fighter Verses” memory program. We thought that in this time of chaos and uncertainty the best thing that we can do is to try to get God’s Word deep into our hearts and lives. We are doing so that we might help each other be filled with peace and hope in these crazy CoVid times. So, would you be willing to join us in this? Would you take up the challenge to memorize some or all of these passages? Would you be willing not only to finish 2020 by kneading God’s Word into your heart and mind and life, but to get a jump on 2021 with the comfort, encouragement and hope of the Scriptures? Here is a list of the verses that you as individuals or families can learn and share together so that we as a church family might see, savor and share the all-surpassing worth of Christ!
