PLEA, PRAISE AND PROMISE

Psalm 67

THE PLEA vs 1-2

Our first relationship with God begins with our asking for His mercy towards us. We accept the fact that we have sinned and are under His coming judgement, hell for eternity. Its’ then we realize we have no other hope for forgiveness than Jesus Christ who paid our penalty for sin. We then ask God foe mercy, because we have nothing to offer for ourselves. Then rely on His promises that never fail. To know more about Him and His ways we must read/study the Bible ourselves time alone with the Bible and God.

THE PRAISE vs 3

Praise follow as knowledge of God and His ways increases.  He will judge all people with righteous judgement, His judgement will never be wrong . He knows the truth and all circumstances we face. He is in control of all that happen and also allows people to do wrong things. Remember the day is coming when all will give account for thing done whether good or bad. When we accept Christ as our and the only Saviour, our past sin is forgiven and He will remember them no more.  Now we our desire is to live in ways that will be pleasing to Him. Because of Christ paying the penalty for our sin we will praise and worship Him freely.

THE PROMISE vs 6

When we are in the right relationship with God that is nothing between us.  All sin unconfessed hinders that fellowship with Christ. The hymn writer Charles Tindley put it clearly in the hymn Nothing Between my soul and my Saviour.

  1. Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
    Naught of this world’s delusive dream;
    I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
    Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.
  2. Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
    Habits of life, though harmless they seem,
    Must not my heart from Him ever sever;
    He is my all, there’s nothing between.
  3. Nothing between, like pride or station;
    Self or friends shall not intervene;
    Though it may cost me much tribulation,
    I am resolved, there’s nothing between.
  4. Nothing between, e’en many hard trials,
    Though the whole world against me convene;
    Watching with prayer and much self-denial,
    I’ll triumph at last, there’s nothing between.

Refrain:
Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor;
Keep the way clear! Let nothing between

PRAISE TO GOD vs 1-2
Praise because of who he is and the love He has shown to /for us. True Christians should have joy because of our salvation from the penalty of sin. Our joy and thankfulness should not be silent. Share with others both believers and unbelievers what Christ has done and is doing for you.
WORSHIP TO GOD vs 3-4
He is awesome, we can’t comprehend how great and holy He is. It’s beyond our ability, but knowing what we do know through the Bible and creation around us we worship Him and give Him reverence. All will submit to Him eventually but for some it will be to late for salvation and forgiveness.
WORKS OF GOD vs 5-12
He turned the river into dry land for the Israelites to cross. He rules over all even the wicked He allows for a time. He secures the Believer so they will stand, He purifies us sometimes through trials.
OUR COMMITMENT TO GOD vs 13-17
When you accept His salvation and commit yourself to God, be sure to follow through with what you have promised. Share your testimony of what God has done for you to all people at every opportunity. Make opportunities, bring it up when talking with others.
OUR FELLOWSHIP WITH God VS 17-20
Unconfessed and unforsaken sin shuts the door between you and God. Confession to God opens the door between you and God, God will hear our prayers and show mercy to all.
