Year 8, Day 195: Psalm 50
Theological
Commentary: Click Here Psalm 50 has
a great truth deep at its core.   Before
getting there, though, look at the surface level of this psalm.   This psalm is about God being a judge.   He is capable of calling all into account
under Him.   There ...

Year 8, Day 189: Psalm 43
Theological
Commentary: Click Here Psalm 43
continues the tone of what we began yesterday.   We can get a sense that these psalms are a matched set because they
contain the exact same phrase. “Why are you downcast, oh my soul?”   Here is another psalm deali...

Year 8, Day 187: Psalm 41
Theological
Commentary: Click Here There is an interesting trend that becomes
quite clear when reading the psalms.   More often than not, the people in the psalms mentioned in connection
with God have a few specific things in common.   They are the poor, th...

take a short jaunt into the New Testament and the letters of Paul. In the

Year 8, Day 181: Psalms 38-39
Theological
Commentary: Click Here Psalm 38
gives us a psalmist in a low spot in their life.   Clearly the psalmist is feeling attacked,
perhaps entrapped, and certainly a bit on the helpless side.   In the midst of his pain, the psalmist asked
not to be re...

Year 8, Day 177: Psalms 30-31
Theological
Commentary: Click Here In Psalms 30
and 31 we can see a neat contrast between God and humankind.   Before I go too far, though, understand that
I am speaking in generalities.   Naturally

Year 8, Day 171: Psalms 19-20
Theological
Commentary: Click Here Psalm 19 has
some iconic verses.   It tells us that the
law of the Lord is perfect.   It revives
the soul. It is to be sought out more than God.   It makes the heart glad.   It makes
the wise simple.   It is
enlightening. ...

Year 8, Day 165: Psalms 4-6

Year 8, Day 157: Mark 10
Theological
Commentary: Click Here As we draw
closer to the cross in the Gospel of Mark, we get more of the identity of
Christ.   He is still a teacher.   He is still a healer.   But he is also God’s Messiah. He is the one
who will save the world. I’ll star...
