Sermons from the Psalms
Psalm 62 - What Does it Mean to be Alone?
This week, (July 12/15th), Lord and Savior Ev. Lutheran Church will highlight Psalm 62 in the continuing series of “Sermons from the Psalms." This psalm focuses our attention on a single word: "Alone." King David, who penned this psalm, faced tremendous challenges in his life, but this psalm starts out with the phrase "My soul rests quietly in God alone.” Pastor David Carlovsky will be preaching on a sermon theme of "WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ALONE?"
I. All alone in our fears!
II. Always safe in our Savior—alone!
Psalm 47 - Sing Praises to our King!
The following week (July 19th/ 22nd), Pastor Carlovsky will highlight Psalm 47 in his sermon, with special emphasis on verses 6 & 7: "Sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth." (Psalm 47:6,7). The sermon will highlight some earthly kings mentioned in the Bible, particularly Sennacherib, the Assyrian Emperor. He claimed for himself the title, "Great King." All the great kings are in their graves. Only the "Greatest King of All" remains and will remain into eternity. We will be encouraged to never forget what He has done for us and to never forget what He still does for us. The sermon theme will be: "SING PRAISES TO OUR KING!”
I. ...because of what He has done for us!
II. ...because of what He still does for us!
