- Psalm 67
- Matthew 6:9-13
From beginning to end, Psalm 148 is about praise: praise is the song of creation, and we’re invited to join in. But it’s possible for our lives to be out of tune with that praise: what does it mean to praise the Lord, and how can we find our voice in creation’s song?
We hear a lot about work life balance - but what is the Psalmist’s vision of a really well balanced life. Ps 149 is a great Psalm of praise, that invites us to true balance.
One of the foundational truths of the Christian gospel is that salvation is by grace. But if that’s how we come into the family of God, then that matters for the way we relate to one another in the local church. To put it simply: if salvation is by grace, then church must be by grace. And that means we prioritise gracious relationships.
How does a person change? What should we do when we feel like we’re not changing as we’d hoped? As we continue our series on the values of CCIW, we take a look at how grace frees us from try-harder Christianity and leads us into deep, heart-level change.
