On the First Sunday of each month, the Orangeburg Church of Christ hosts an abbreviated worship service, after which we sing for an extended period of time. On these Sundays, the lessons are shorter than usual sermons. In 2020, these first Sunday lessons are going to focus on passages from the Psalms. This week, we consider a lesson about trust i God from Psalm 4
As we continue our walk with some of Israel’s kings, we turn our attention this week to Israel’s most famous king, David. Though he was called, “a man after God’s own heart,” he had his flaws. One in particular, his sin with Bathsheba, led to a beautiful Psalm of repentance which is the basis for our study this morning.
We have innumerable reasons to be thankful to God. A few of those reasons are described in Psalm 136, which reminds us to give thanks to God whose steadfast love endures forever. The Psalmist writes in a few lines about God’s defeat of Israel’s enemies, who were justly punished because of their wickedness. God is always justice and always renders as is fitting for the sins that are committed. Only those covered in the blood of Christ can have their sins washed away and be pure and righteous in the eyes of God.
My sermon from this morning (11/22/15). Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope you will remember to be thankful every day for all that God has done for you.
In this weeks video devotional we take a very personal look at a passage from the Psalms. We are going to focus on Psalm 139:23-24. Open a Bible with me and let’s study this great passage of Scripture.
The world will tell you to do anything and everything to get ahead in this life, but for a Christian, it’s more important to make sure what you are doing is right. It’s better to be a lowly doorman and be with God than to gain everything here on earth and lose your soul.

Where do we find refuge in difficult times? David knew that God was the source of refuge. We have a rock in Jesus Christ, a shelter in the time of storm.
