Read More – Jesus Is the Key to the Psalms

readmorecircle1

The Psalms are the very heart of Holy Scripture. The Book of Psalms has been called “The Prayer and Praise Book of Israel”, but, of course, the Psalms are not the exclusive property of that favoured nation. Believers of all ages have sung them and have revelled in the sweetness of these inspired songs. It seems as though every human emotion and every spiritual ambition finds expression in the poetry of the Psalms…The Saviour Himself, however, has provided the key to the most profitable of all meditations, that is to find Christ in the Psalms. Here we may find His sufferings and His glory, His feelings and His tender inner experiences. On that memorable first day of the week on the way to Emmaus, and later in Jerusalem in the midst of His disciples, He showed those early believers that He was in all the Scriptures, and He made special reference to the Psalms (Lk 24:27, 44). Indeed certain Psalms are called “Messianic” because, apart from Himself, the Messiah, there can be no ultimate understanding or fulfilment of those particular Psalms.

The Psalms are many believers’ favorite book of the Bible, and for good reason. But have you ever thought about how even songs of praise can point and lead to Jesus?

“Nothing Less than a Library of Faithful Exegesis and Exposition”

John MacArthur is known worldwide as an outstanding theologian, author, and champion of expository preaching. His MacArthur New Testament Commentary is one of today’s top-selling commentary series with over 1 million copies sold to date.

In each volume, MacArthur carefully takes each passage of Scripture, brings out truth and doctrine, and then explains how this relates to the whole, big picture of the Bible. He connects the Scriptural dots, using Scripture to shed light on other Scripture.

In this expository commentary, MacArthur provides verse-by-verse analysis within the context. With focus on the meaning and context, each passage is then reflected on, followed by points of application. The application is practical and relevant. It is not linguistically technical but will deal with linguistics when MacArthur feels it is helpful. It also focuses on major doctrines and how they relate to Scripture.

The MacArthur New Testament Commentary is thorough, and MacArthur will sometimes get more out of one verse than many commentaries will get out of an entire chapter.

Weekly Free Book – The Relational Leader

Today’s free book is The Relational Leader by Stephen R. Graves and Brad J. Waggoner.

What makes a great leader?

Whatever formula and definition you come up with, you must account for the relational side of life. Very little work happens without touching people. Another way to say that is most of our work is tied to humanity. Therefore, without sound relational skills every leader will struggle. And there are no exceptions. That leadership deficit eventually catches up with us.
