Christians live between the first advent of Jesus and the second advent of Jesus (His final return). How can we keep an attitude of worship as we wait? We consider this question as we look at Psalm 95 and stories from the Christmas story.
How can Christians remain faithful to the Lord with health problems and aging bodies? When we feel abandoned, how ought we pray? We study these questions in light of Psalm 71 and the example of Simeon and Anna from Luke 2 - leading us to subjects like chronic pain and retirement.
If we want to grow in intimacy with God, Christians need to deal with two subjects - integrity and our prayer life. We look at those subjects through Psalm 25 to understand what it takes to live faithfully in every area of life and how to shape our prayers for the sake of faithful, God-honoring living.
How ought we pray when we feel crushed by the weight of our sin before the Lord? Psalm 51 has been the standard prayer for times of confession. After learning about the circumstances surrounding this prayer, Pastor Aaron leads us into four areas of how to confession our sins 'well' before a Holy God.
What are some of the promises from God which are available to us as we give Him more control over our lives? We answer this question as we look at David's heart for the Lord and King Saul's barriers from trusting God as His shepherd.
How should Christians navigate the difficult seasons where spiritual and emotional depression is at it's strongest? Psalm 42 leads us to five ways in which believers can keep their head above water until the Lord provides solid ground again.
Where do Christians find words to pray during our most difficult moments? Most find a way to express their emotions in the Psalms. We begin this series by first considering 'why' believers turn to the Psalms for prayer and then considering how Psalms 1 informs our prayer lives.
