Psalms of Ascent: The Importance of Worship (Part 2)
We live in an instant society. We place high value on things that can be done or acquired in the quickest and most efficient way. We think thing that a smooth and easy life will make us happy. When it doesn’t, we can get impatient and frustrated. We can also buy into the myth that “True happiness comes from within.”
But what if this is wrong? What if true joy doesn’t come from within, or from a smooth and easy life? What if true joy come from without from without? What if it comes from God himself?
Embedded in the Bible is a little-known guidebook to the lasting joy we long for: the Psalms of Ascent—a set of 15 Psalms that share honestly about the heights and the depths of life while celebrating the faithfulness of God. CrossWay begins a short summer series that will focus on the psalms.
