On Sunday morning I had the priviledge of leading worship. I was absent from the Saturday evening rehearsal for some prior engagements. We rehearsed a bit on Saturday afternnon, BUT the service was less than smooth. I'm so glad God is patient with our weak attempts sometimes.
I also had the chance to teach on Sunday evening. We looked at an ASAPH psalm. Number 74 seems to lead you to believe it wasn't Asaph who actually penned the psalm because he talks about things that didn't happen until after he was gone. It's why they say Asaph is 'credited' with 12 psalms instead of he 'wrote' 12 psalms. Either way, the psalm helps us find assurance in God though the world is full of sin and evil.
This week I'm teaching about 25 young people each morning from 9:00am until 11:00am. We're looking at the whole Bible story in one big swoop. I grew in faith when I began to see the big picture that comes out of all of those little stories we learn as kids. It's a 'forest for the trees' thing. Every story leads the reader to one place...Christ on the cross. The Old Testament is full of pictures of the sacrifice of Christ. What a book! It's like the folks who wrote it had help!
