Psalm 73:1-28

Lord's Day Update Jun 08, 2016 Comments Off on Psalm 73:1-28

The reading of God’s law will be Ephesians 4:17.

Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.

I will be concluding the Questions People Ask God sermon series this Sunday. The sermon text is Psalm 73:1-28 with the focus on the question asked in verse 25, “Whom have I in heaven but You?”

1. Can you think of an incident recorded in the Gospel of John in which a similar question is asked of Jesus? (Jn 6:68)

2. The question in Ps 73:25 is followed by the statement, “And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You.” Notice how the Psalmist mentions both heaven and earth in this verse. Why is this significant?

3. In ways does this verse speak of contentment? Security? Delight?

4. What does the context of chapter 73 contribute to your understanding of verse 25? What expressions of sin does the Psalmist confess to the Lord? How did the Psalmist rise above the temptations to sin?

5. In what ways does this chapter embolden your faith in God?
