Christmas from the Psalms

Psalm 110 - The Rest of the Christmas Story (Christmas Eve 2011)




Psalm 110 is the most quoted Psalm from the Old Testament in the New. It is also the most quoted chapter from the Old Testament in the New. Psalm 110 vets 1 is quoted 24 times. This Psalm was central to the New Testament writers understand of who Jesus is and what he came to do. Unlike we often consider Jesus, it is not a Psalm about Christ's humility but his authority. It is not primarily about his first coming but about his second, when he will crush, destroy and butcher his enemies. It is the rest of the Christmas story we never hear.

Psalm 2 - Immediate and Unconditional Surrender

edge

We are told to invite Jesus into our hearts. The decision to invite Jesus into our hearts sounds like deciding on having cream or sugar in our coffee. It is far too self orientated. According to Psalm 2, Jesus doesn't ask for us to invite him in, he commands us to repent of our sin. We must flee to him as the only shield that can protect us from God's white hot wrath. We are commanded to immediately and unconditionally surrender to Christ's rulership in our life or face Christ's terrifying wrath when he returns.

Psalm 45 - Who is Jesus?



At Christmas, we celebrate Jesus as a baby in a manger. Is he something more? Muslims claim Jesus is one of Allah's holiest prophets. Jehovah's Witnesses claim Jesus is Michael the Archangel. Mormons tell us Jesus is the elder brother of the fallen angel Lucifer. A Christian Scientist will tell you Jesus is a man who lived out the divine ideal. Who is Jesus? Psalm 45 explains who Jesus is and who we are because of him.

Psalm 14 - God Came to Save Fools



Jodie Foster, an outspoken atheist, has said, "How could you ask me to believe in God when there's absolutely no evidence that I can see?" Why is it that some people can see no evidence for God in creation while many of us see it so clear? In this message, we discover who we are apart from God's mercy and the supernatural difference God makes in us when he calls us to himself.
