Bible Reading Challenge Week 32 Day 1

Our reading challenge for the day is Psalms 96-100. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Psalm 96 - What is that new song we sing to the LORD? Ironically enough it is an old song. We sing that he is the mighty God, the Savior. We proclaim his glory, strength, and salvation. Our new song is new only because we are singing it anew.

Psalm 97 - By its very nature all creation praises the LORD. This extends even to the false gods which bow down before him. How much more his people who are called according to his grace!

Psalm 98 - Again all creation is singing the praise of the LORD who has made his salvation known. He alone is the righteous judge.

Psalm 99 - God’s forgiveness is there for Israel who has disobeyed him again and again. His forgiveness is there for all the nations who lived in disobedience. His forgiveness is there for us who believe him.

Psalm 100 - In our praise to the LORD we call all people to see him as their creator, redeemer, and sustainer. In Christ he has made peace with God on behalf of fallen humanity. Let us come before him in thanksgiving for his redemptive love.
