Hope in the Lord!

Psalm 130:1-8                August 24, 2014                Link for audio/video/manuscript

In Psalm 130 the psalmist confesses his struggle with and against the sinful nature that lies deep within his own heart. After confessing the desperateness of his sin and his need for God, and declaring the amazing grace of God’s forgiveness, and singing praises for the hope God has promised him in the future, the psalmist passionately proclaims the glory of the gospel of God that can be found in promised Savior of the world in Jesus Christ. Psalm 130 does speak of the greatest battle we have in life, but when we “Hope in the Lord” we know that the war is won!
