Praise God from whom all blessings flow…
It is right and good for the Christian to find delight in worshiping God. He is our source and strength. He is our joy and peace. He is worthy of praise.
It is saddening to me when I meet Christians who are just full of sour grapes. I wonder what their understanding of the gospel is. Now, I don’t mean that someone who is going through real tribulation has a sober spirit about them. I don’t think the Christian life has to be a big rally with cheers and hoot and hollers.
But I do think that the Christian who really has come to understand the goodness of God and has experienced his grace through the gospel has to have some sense of joy and satisfaction in God that is seen in their life.
As John Piper likes to say, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.” God is satisfying.
This lesson reminds us of these truths as we study the Psalms together. Let’s find our joy in Christ before we stand before anyone in any of our classes to encourage them to do the same.
