    Faith that Works Scripture:
    James 4:1-6
    -
    Speaker: Lukus Counterman - James 4:1-6 presents a key problem that can exist even amongst the people of God. They still fight with each other - maybe in the home, at work, or even in the church. Where does this come fro...

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 139 celebrates the omniscience and omnipresence of God. It is ascribed to David. There is, perhaps, no other place in Scripture where the bigness of God is as strikingly set forth as it is in Psalm 139. One scholar wrote, "Both in loftiness of thought and in expressive beauty of language, Psalm 139 stands preeminent, and it is not surprising that it has been called 'the crown of the Psalms.'" The superscription addresses the Psalm to the choir director. This is an indication that the Psalm was to be set to music for use in public worship. The entire congregation was to use the Psalm. Its utterances were to be adopted by every member of the congregation. As we study it this morning, may the Lord impress his greatness on our hearts and cause us to live acceptably in his presence.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 90 is the oldest in the psalter; it’s written by Moses. This psalm is a reflection on the transience of life. It contemplates the nature of life under God’s wrath and affirms the necessity of living aright in the presence of the Lord. Only in God’s presence with His favor can life be lived with significance and satisfaction. May the Lord rescue us from the futility of life apart from Him. May He give us a heart of wisdom as we seek Him this morning.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Who rules the earth? God reigns in heaven and extends his will downward into our sphere through his appointed King in Zion. God’s reign, hidden and invisible though it may appear now, is the only true reality. What we have in Psalm 2 is a wide-angle lens, which offers a theological perspective for interpreting world events. The psalm calls us to trust in God and look for an era when all enemies will be removed, the anointed King will be enthroned, and the universal rule of the Sovereign one will bring ultimate peace. May the Lord help us to “kiss the Son,” and embrace the reign of the true King this morning.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 67 is an expression of Israel’s calling to be a kingdom of priests and a light to the nations. It is sometimes referred to as a “missionary psalm.” The writer is concerned that the nations will learn God’s saving way and fear him; thus he calls all the peoples of the earth to acknowledge the sovereignty and bounty of God. The present blessings, after all, are a foretaste of greater blessings to come for those who acknowledge the Lord by faith. The prayer of the psalmist is that God would pour out His rich blessings, not so that they can be heaped up and horded, but so that God’s grace might be channeled to the ends of the earth.

Speaker: Will Galkin - We all stumble, struggle and sin. Yet, many times our hardened hearts do not look to God for mercy and grace. Some of us out of pride try to convince ourselves and others that our deeds of self righteousness outweigh our shortcomings. Some of us out of fear cover our sin and hope that others forget about it even though we cannot. Some of us motivated out of laziness leave it unresolved for all to see. All of these responses are failing to see what God wants. He does not want us to cover it up or merely conform. He desires that we would find forgiveness with Him. What he delights in is a broken and contrite heart. Brokenness can be defined as the shattering of my will so that my every action and reaction is controlled by the Spirit of God. This morning we will look to 2 Samuel 11-12 and see The Need for a Broken Heart. Then in Psalm 51 we will see the Prayer of a Broken Heart. May God help all of His people have hearts that are broken and contrite.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Psalm 23 is easily the most famous and most familiar chapter in the Psalms. If the average American knows anything about the Bible, he or she probably knows the opening line, “The Lord is my shepherd.” Depth and strength underlie the simplicity of this ancient song. Its peace is not escape. Its contentment is not complacency. There is a readiness to face deep darkness and imminent attack because of the presence of the Lord. Psalm 23 gives us words of faith to speak out loud in times of difficulty. It points us toward trust in God. May the Lord help us this morning as weak sheep and weary travelers, to find all that we need in God – our kind shepherd and gracious host.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The historic theologian Matthew Henry reflected on Psalm 121 and said, “Wherever we are, at home or abroad, we are exposed to danger more than we are aware of; and this psalm directs and encourages us to repose ourselves and our confidence in God, and by faith to put ourselves under his protection and commit ourselves to his care.” May the Lord help us to look to him and rest in him as our source of real help as we travel this treacherous pilgrimage called life.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - What is your story? Where did you come from? We all have different answers to that question. But, the question we must consider this morning is, what story are we telling? That’s exactly what Asaph is going to address today in Psalm 78. That’s at the center of this Psalm. Psalm 78 is unique. It isn’t necessarily directed at God. It is actually directed to a group of people. It is a history that was to be recited and reviewed liturgically. It would have been read at festivals to remember who God is and what He is like, and that was on purpose. You see, this Psalm isn’t random. The history it tells is not given merely to record the past, but to change people for the future. This story was being told and remembered for a purpose. And that’s our big idea this morning. If you could pass one thing on to the next generation, what would it be? Asaph is going to tell us that there is a story that needs to be told, and it is important to get it right so that it gets passed on.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Stop looking down at your screen. Pull your thumbs off your device. Take a breath and look at the sky. Position yourself in such a way to look at the Wasatch. Can you see any snow? Notice how it is still green from all the extra moisture this spring. Are you thankful for the blueness of the sky? Keep watching it until the sun sets. Wow! Look at the way the orange and the red ricochet between the clouds. Check out the deep purple flowing from the mountains. God has made himself known to man through His creation and the supernatural revelation of the Scriptures. Yet, many times we fail to notice the glory of God all around us. God's people are to respond in humbleness to the vast revelation of God. Therefore, you should consider the following from Psalm 19: 1) The glory of God as revealed in creation. 2) The value and benefits of God’s revelation in the Word. 3) Your response to the Revelation of God.

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Paul gloried in the cross because Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is the source of his and every believer’s righteousness and acceptance before God. The cross brought an end to the hopeless frustration of pursuing God through works. In the cross, we discover that God “made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2Cor. 5:21). Christians honor and even boast in the cross because Christ’s sacrifice there provided redemption and eternal life, making it the supreme symbol of the gospel. To truly know the meaning of the cross, you must first know the One who died there. May God help us to see, receive, and praise the Savior who was crucified for us.
