Song of the Redeemed

March 18, 2015 ()

Bible Text: Psalm 107:1-9 |


This is certainly the song of the redeemed: Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever (Psalm 107:1). There are many ways in which the Lord’s goodness is exhibited in the lives of those He has redeemed—and while we often and appropriately focus on the objective nature of all that God has done for us in Christ, it is also true that our own lives tell the story and illustrate God’s goodness and mercy in action. In Psalm 107, the psalmist invites the redeemed of the LORD to tell their story (107:2) and “ponder the loving deeds of the LORD” (107:43). So, what’s your story? When you ponder all the ways that God has been at work in your life, what things does God bring to mind most readily? Name some times the Lord clearly delivered you from the “hand of the foe” (107:2). Ultimately, all the things we could recount point us back to Jesus, the One who took on the old evil foe at Calvary to deliver us, the One who satisfies His redeemed with good things. Thanks to our Lord for His unfailing love.
