This Psalm tells us several more things about what waiting on God really means. For a start, those who love God have a choice: wait on him, or fret. (Erik Pattison, 15 March 2020. Do read the text first, as the reading is not included in this recording: Psalm 37 NIV)
Psalm 27 – Waiting for the Lord
Waiting is unpopular, but wonderful things are promised to those who "wait for the Lord". What does it really mean and look like? (Erik Pattison, 8 March 2020. Note: Erik's voice at the start of this recording was a bit hoarse from our cheerful singing, but he soon recovered.)
Psalm 96 – Rejoicing in God's justice
Second talk on God's justice: a look at what is so wonderfully good about it, that we long for it and all of creation will rejoice in it. (Erik Pattison, 23 February 2020. Includes a long Q&A again)
Romans 12:19 – "Vengeance is mine, I will repay"
Vengeance and justice are deeply intertwined. The prophets tell is that it is also a necessary element in our salvation. How has the death of Jesus reshaped these realities? (Erik Pattison, 16 February 2020)
Luke 1:35 – The Holy Thing within Mary
Gabriel announced to Mary a "holy thing", which grew to be a holy child. (Erik Pattison, 25 December 2019)
Luke 2:1-7 – Jesus' quiet Christmas
The angels must have made a loud noise – but only a few saw them. Back in Bethlehem, it would have been mostly quiet for Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. God does not do "spectacle"; but his eternal Word was with mankind in a new way. (Erik Pattison, 22 December 2019)
Isaiah 40 and Luke 1v5-25 – The Voice from the Presence of God
Gabriel speaks as one who has come from the presence of God. He foretells the birth of John, who will be a voice in the wilderness, and speak with authority from God like Elijah. We need such voices today. (Erik Pattison, 15 December 2019)
1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
