the god of worship & the worshiper of God:
Psalm 111 & 112
Ps 111:1 Hallelujah! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Ps 112:1 Hallelujah! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments!
The Book of the Psalms was the “Hymnbook” of the Old Testament worshipers – meaning, also, it was the “Hymnbook” Jesus used. Some of these hymns were for instruction, others for repentance, testimony, or remembrance, and others still just to proclaim the greatness of the Lord God. Psalms 111 & 112 are written as a “couplet” – they were meant to be read and studied together. Our course this session will focus on the powerful and inspirational messages revealed in the beautiful and majestic words, AND the unique structure of these Psalms.
Psalm 111: The God of Worship. In words as majestic as anywhere in Scripture, the writer presents an inspiring and instructive image of the God we worship. His words; His works; His loving care; His faithfulness – ALL are the very foundation upon which our worship is built and presented.
Psalm 112: The Worshiper of God. Just as there is “no one like our God,” there is also no place of blessedness like that of the one who truly “fears the Lord.” The one who fears the Lord celebrates God, testifies of His works, exults in His wonders, receives from God, lives for God, and finds His blessings. THAT is true worship!
Acrostics: There is a unique structure to these Psalms. The first word of each line of the Psalm begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. This form is used in only a few Psalms in the Bible. We will study what these “letters” reveal as to the very character of God, and of the worshiper.
You will find great inspiration, and enlightenment from this study.
Join us for this study and find your hope strengthened and confirmed through the encouraging messages of Psalm 111 & Psalm 112.
