We will be doing a historical study of Psalms 105, 106, 107, and Acts 7. Our focus will be on Israel, the Church, and the United States. Today we will study Psalm 106:1-5 the introduction to Psalm 106. This Psalm shows us the goodness of God and the sinfulness of the people.
“We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.” (Psalm 106:6)
However, as in Psalm 105 we start with giving of thanks, remembrance, and worship.
Praise the Lord Psalm 106 v1-5
- a) Give thanks v 1-2
- b) Keep His judgments and do right v 3
- c) Remember me, O Lord v 4
- d) See good, rejoice in gladness, glory with other believers v 5
“Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? who can shew forth all his praise? 3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times. 4 Remember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; 5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.” (Psalm 106:1-5)
If we fail to do the above we will fall into the sin of the people. They failed to praise, thank, obey, remember the Lord. As we will see this week, rejection, rebellion, and sin have consequences.
Today begin to practice Psalm 106:1-5.
