We are in the middle of our Psummer Psalm Pseries. As I mentioned in the introduction of the series, one good reason to look at the book of Pslams is that it is “God’s prescription for a complacent church, because through it he reveals how great, wonderful, magnificent, wise, and utterly awe-inspiring he is” (Kapelrud). We don’t want to be a complacent church. As a community, we need to be transforming from the inside-out. What about us as individuals? What is your relationship with God like? In 2014, Tim Keller of Redeemer Church observed that “Fake Christians” cannot answer the following questions:
- How real has God been this week to your heart?
- Are you having any particular seasons of sweet delight in God?
- Do you really sense his presence in your life?
- Do you really sense him giving you his love?
- Have you been finding Scripture to be alive and active?
- Are you finding God’s grace more glorious and moving now than you have in the past?
- Are you conscious of a growing sense of the evil of your heart, and in response, a growing dependence on and grasp of the preciousness of the mercy of God?
These are good questions that we should be asking each other as a church. For some of us, these questions are spiritual wakeup calls. God is calling you and I to wakeup and invest in our relationship with the One who matters most. Let us seek Him, The Well Church. As we seek Him, may He bless us accordingly.
