Psalm 22. 25-31
This Sunday I will be preaching from Psalm 22.25-31. It says this in verse 29: "To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for him." What a fascinating verse. It is referring to what happens to those who go to the dust and who sleep in the earth. In the face of this death that seems to be all around for the psalmist ----- he still says: "and I shall live for him." Even in the midst of death the psalmist still commits his life to the giver of life. It is kind of like what Paul writes in Romans 8.38-39: "For I am convinced that neither death,nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, or things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us form the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." What do you all think?
