Romans 7 – 8:17
Psalm 130 (NKJV)
A Song of Ascents.
1 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications.
3 If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope.
6 My soul waits for the Lord More than those who watch for the morning— Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord; For with the Lord there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption.
8 And He shall redeem Israel From all his iniquities.
I What this Psalm is about?
II Three things I learned from Owen on Psalm 130
A personal and pastoral reflection
- Owen’s book shows me how to preach the Gospel
- It reminds me of the cruelty of giving out false assurance
- It teaches me how to wait for God’s own comfort
- Wait patiently
- Wait diligently, “Be up and doing”
- Wait expectantly
