Ep 11 - Sing and Praise (Psalm 33)

Ep 11 - Sing and Praise (Psalm 33)

Why do Christians sing and praise? Why is music such an integral part to Christian worship? Psalm 33 helps us to understand this better within the context of God's faithfulness and love. So join us as we better grow in our knowledge of this topic and as we seek to raise our voices in praise and worship to our great God and King.

Ep 10 - The Voice of the Lord (Psalm 29) ft. Kamal

Ep 10 - The Voice of the Lord (Psalm 29) ft. Kamal

You can tell how powerful someone is by the authority of their word. The manager of a shop can tell her employees what to do. The CEO of a business can tell the managers under him what to do. And the President of the USA can make a declaration of war and send the combined might of the US armed forces against someone. How powerful is God's word? What does he use his command authority to achieve? That's what Psalm 29 is about - the power of the voice of the LORD. Enjoy this week's podcast and be blessed!

Ep 9 - Engaging With Those Who Disagree (Psalm 28)

Ep 9 - Engaging With Those Who Disagree (Psalm 28)

It comes as no surprise that many parts of the Western world is departing from its religious, and particularly, Christian roots. There are a number of consequences to this. But it certainly raises the question: how do we engage with them? Psalm 28 gives us a model that guards us from catastrophising the situation and being careless with the situation. Listen along for more!

Ep 8 - I Need Not Fear (Psalm 23) ft. Eugene

Ep 8 - I Need Not Fear (Psalm 23) ft. Eugene

Fear is a powerful emotion that grips us. It controls us in more ways than we realise. How do we overcome our fears? Do we run, duck, and hide? Do we face up? Psalm 23 gives us insight on how we can face our fears. Listen along as Rev. Eugene (Senior Pastor of GracePoint Presbyterian Church) walks us through this Psalm one verse at a time.

Ep 7 - Strength and Success (Psalm 21)

Ep 7 - Strength and Success (Psalm 21)

No one likes to be weak. But what is strength? Where does strength come from? Psalm 21 shows us the true nature of strength and how it ought to be wielded, and it encourages us to turn to God for strength in order that we may faithfully follow him and serve others. Join us as we see how Jesus redefines our understanding of strength.

Ep 6 - What Do We Need? - (Psalm 16)

Ep 6 - What Do We Need? - (Psalm 16)

We all know that there is a difference between needs and wants. But what do we truly need? Psalm 16 helps us to consider this and enables us to discover that God is actually all that we could ever truly want and need. He is the one who gives us safety, satisfaction, and security. Knowing this means that we are enabled and empowered to be generous with what we have.

Ep 5 - God Does Not Care About How We Live (Psalm 15)

Ep 5 - God Does Not Care About How We Live (Psalm 15)

Most of us believe that God cares about how we live. But we also sometimes believe that God's grace is so great that how we live also sort of does not really matter. Afterall, surely God will forgive! Isn't that his "job"? We may think that right living is not a bad idea but it is ultimately not necessary. Grace covers all, doesn't it? Psalm 15 challenges our view of grace and highlights that while salvation is unequivocally in Christ, those who are in Christ also ought to grow in their desire to walk in righteousness. What does that look like? Listen along!

Ep 4 - Two Different Gods (Psalm 11)

Ep 4 - Two Different Gods (Psalm 11)

"I prefer the God of the New Testament over the God of the Old Testament." Have you ever heard people say that? It is an idea that the God of the Old Testament is mean, judgmental, and harsh, while the God of the New Testament is kind, generous, and loving. Sure the latter is better than the former! But is this really the case? Psalm 11 shows us that there is a consistency in God's character all throughout Scripture and redemptive history, and it also shows us that there is a correspondence in his justice and judgment, love and law, and anger and affection.

Ep 3 - How Do You See Yourself? (Psalm 8)

Ep 3 - How Do You See Yourself? (Psalm 8)

Do you ever feel small and worthless? This is a loaded and sensitive question. But how we see ourselves radically shapes the way we relate to others. Psalm 8 shows us that we have every reason to feel small and worthless. Yet at the same time, it also shows that how we see ourselves in Christ changes everything. Small yet significant. Sinful yet saved. Simple yet made strong.

Ep 2 - Being Polite with God (Psalm 5)

Ep 2 - Being Polite with God (Psalm 5)

Psalm 5 poses a very important question: do we feel like we need to be polite with God? How we answer that question shapes the way we approach, pray to, and relate to God. What we'll discover here is the Psalmist using surprising and shocking words in his prayer. In doing so, he shows us we can confront deep and raw emotions like grief while also committing them to God.

Ep 1 - Delighting in the Law of God (Psalm 1)

Ep 1 - Delighting in the Law of God (Psalm 1)

Psalm 1 sets the scene for us. It speaks of the injustices of the world we live in - where the wicked seem to prosper and where the righteous seem to suffer. Yet in the midst of all of this, the Psalm also shows us the path to flourishing. It is by delighting in the law of the Lord. It is not about trying harder. It is about who we depend on. The Lord who knows all, sees all, and loves his own invites us to depend on him.
