Sunday Morning Worship (9:30 AM)

Sermon Text (Psalm 69)

This Lord’s day we will be looking at Psalm 69. This Psalm is quoted a number of times throughout the New Testament. It is in many ways both a lament as well as a Messianic Psalm.

It is a lament in that David here cries out to God and pours forth his cries for mercy and help in the midst of his terrible suffering at the hands of his enemies. Laments are one of the most common genres in the entire book of psalms.

This is also a Messianic Psalm. That is, in this Psalm we find a number of clear prophecies of the Lord Jesus Christ who was to come. The things that David suffered and detailed for us here were certainly true of his own experience, but in an even greater way they pointed forward even more so to the sufferings of our Lord Jesus Christ. David here, serves as a type of the Son of David, who was David’s Son, and yet also David’s Lord!

This great Psalm of David is rather long, relatively speaking, and so we will not have the time to go through every verse in detail. Instead we will be looking at the big picture that is painted for us here, and how it speaks of Christ’s sufferings on our behalf, as well as how it teaches us to approach the trials of our faith that are sure to come in this life.

We hope that you will join us for worship this Sunday! However, if you are unable to join us in-person for worship, we will be live-streaming our worship service. See our Facebook page or our YouTube channel for the live video feed starting @ 9:30 AM (PST),
