Keswick '14 - Jonathan Lamb 2: Identity
Psalm 8 - Who am I? - The longest book in the Bible is a songbook, a wonderful collection of worship responses that range across every aspect of our human experience. It is packed full of realism. The writers are not afraid to confront the big questions of life, but they do so in the context of a trusting relationship with the God of the universe. So our five Bible readings will dip into this remarkable songbook, seeking to understand and apply the Psalmists’ teaching in relation to ‘searching for reality in a confusing world’. We will see that the Psalms, and their New Testament reference to Christ, provide us with answers to the big questions of our day, whilst also feeding us for our personal discipleship: the Psalms are ‘the medicine chest for the soul’! Join us as we learn from their wisdom, relate that to our own world, and – most of all – follow the example of the songwriters in worshipping God with prayer, lament, praise and joyful hope!
