Psalms – Weeping, Sowing & Songs of Joy

Rev. Dave Middlebrook

Bible Text: Psalm 126; 1 Corinthians 3:1-9 |


Are we too busy 'running our own race' to spend time saving others? Humans are naturally selfish, focused on our needs, our likes/dislikes, rather than others and more importantly God's. Psalm 126, one of the Songs of Ascent, encourages us to draw away from ourselves and towards God, lifting our eyes from ourselves to Him and His message of salvation. The Psalm focuses on God's rescue of his people, has assurance that as God has helped them before He will do so again, and then leads into an 'agricultural couplet' in v5-6, with the idea of going, and sowing, and the promising of bringing in the harvest with joy. Do our hearts weep for those who don't yet know Christ? The greatest gift we can give anyone is the gift of salvation, now and into eternity? Are we too selfish, too focused on our 'own race', to go to others, sow something of the gospel, and long for them to come to know Christ? Let's live our lives for .... others!
