We have spent several weeks looking at the "missions" psalms. Here is a quick view of what we have seen:
Psalm 46 - God stirs our hearts to long for Him to be worshiped in all the earth.
Psalm 53 - God breaks our heart over the world's rejection of Him.
Psalm 67 - God gives us blessings not for our selfish gain. He gives them so we can make Him know.
If you missed any of those, click the links above to listen to the message on that psalm.
We hope you will ponder those truths, and be asking God what He wants to do in us and through us so that His way may be known on earth.
