Psalm 1
"Blessing and Destruction"

As we begin a series of messages from the book of Psalms, we begin with an exploration of the first Psalm, Psalm 1, which serves as an introduction to the Psalter.  For centuries this book has been central in the prayer life of God’s people and the first Psalm prepares us to pray by alerting us to the fact that we are each confronted with a choice between two radically different ways of walking through life.  We discover that we all live before the God who has revealed himself to humanity and we must choose whether to live in light of Him and his self-revelation or to reject him and live according to our own agenda.  What will become clear is that it is only through faith in Jesus, the one and only righteous one, that we enter into the Way of life with God, the way that gives us hope and a glorious future.
