It is always "Today" - A Lesson from Psalm 95

Posted by Pastor Pete Panitzke on

Psalm 95 is song of praise that we often use in our worship services. But half way through, it takes a turn and sounds a warning about "Today."Click here to listen to the 2 minute introduction to today's readings.

We continue our reading of the psalms:

  • Psalm 91 - The basis for the hymn "On Eagles' Wing." Claim the comfort of knowing God's angels are standing guard over you.
  • Psalm 92 - In the Old Testament, the LORD commanded his people to take one day off per week (the Sabbath) to focus on him. This psalm for the Sabbath shows that the Sabbath is the "fountain of youth" that many have desired over the centuries: "They will still bear fruit in their old age, they will stay fresh and green."
  • Psalm 93A psalm to read over and over when you feel like your world is falling apart. The LORD reigns!
  • Psalm 94 - The LORD knows the thoughts of a person. He knows the plans of the wicked. He knows the fears of his people. "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul."
  • Psalm 95 - "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart." Learn from the mistakes of our spiritual ancestors.
  • Psalm 96 - The first of a number of psalms that remind us God's plan of salvation in the Old Testament included all people. "Say among the nations, 'The LORD reigns.'"

That missionary spirit is present in our New Testament lesson. After we follow Jesus to the empty tomb of Easter by daily Bible reading, it is always Today, the day to be his witnesses to those around us. Read Luke 24:36-53 here.
