Psalm 149

1   Praise the Lord!
     Sing to the Lord a new song,
        his praise in the assembly of the godly!
2   Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
        let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
3   Let them praise his name with dancing,
       making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
4   For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
       he adorns the humble with salvation.
5   Let the godly exult in glory;
       let them sing for joy on their beds.
6   Let the high praises of God be in their throats,
       and two-edged swords in their hands,
7   to execute vengeance on the nations
       and punishments on the peoples,
8   to bind their kings with chains
        and their nobles with getters of iron,
9  to execute on them the judgment written!
       This is honor for all his godly ones.
     Praise the Lord!

I Saw the Light

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light

   I saw the light, I saw the light
   No more darkness, no more night
   Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight
   Praise the Lord I saw the light

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light


I was a fool to wander and stray
For straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light


I've Been Set Free

   I've been set free
   I've been set free
   Since Jesus saved my soul I've been set free
   With blinded eyes I could not see
   But the Lord delivered me
   Now I praise his holy name I've been set free

Once when Jesus came to town
Everybody gathered 'round
All the sick and lame were brought to him that day
When the blind man begged for sight
He shouted out with great delight
Jesus touched his eyes and healed him on that day


Once my life was steeped in sin
But I wouldn't let him in
I thought that I could make it on my own
Farther down sin's road I went
Saw no reason to repent
Then Jesus intervened and rescued me


Sinner friend if you're in doubt and you see there's no way out
You find yourself alone in sinkin' sand
Why not give my God a try
Your thirsty soul he'll satisfy
You'll find your place in heaven when you die


Only a Holy God

Who else commands all the hosts of heaven
Who else could make every king bow down
Who else can whisper and darkness trembles
Only a Holy God 

What other beauty demands such praises
What other splendor outshines the sun
What other majesty rules with justice
Only a Holy God

   Come and behold him
   The One and the Only
   Cry out, sing holy
   Forever a Holy God
   Come and worship the Holy God

What other glory consumes like fire

What other power can raise the dead
What other name remains undefeated
Only a Holy God


Who else could rescue me from my failing
Who else would offer his only Son
Who else invites me to call him father
Only a Holy God
Only my Holy God


The Law and the Gospel
(An Intellectual's Guide to the Gospel)
The Gospel Changes Everything: A Study in Galatians #8
Galatians 3:7-14
Steve Gilbertson

Although brand new to Christianity and mostly comprised of Gentiles, the Galatian
churches are clearly well-instructed in the Scriptures. After all, Paul quotes them
numerous times in today's text, assuming they would know what he was talking about.
Which makes us wonder: how well instructed are we in the Scriptures, and how much
does it matter? We'll keep this in mind as we work our way through Paul's important
(and dense) teaching on the Law and the Gospel.

Galatians 3:7-14 (ESV)

7 Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, forseeing
that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying,
"In you shall all the nations be blessed." 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with
Abraham, the man of faith.

10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be everyone
who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them." 11 Now it is evident
that no one is justified before God by the law, for "The righteous shall live by faith." 12 But the law
is not of faith, rather "The one who does them shall live by them." 13 Christ redeemed us from the
curse of the law by becoming a curse for us-for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on
a tree"- 14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we
might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
