Songs of the Heart for a Life of Faith

Psalms: Songs of the Heart

As we close out our series on the Psalms, Justin Fung talks about the first and last psalms, and how, in order to truly know God, we have to step out of the safety of Psalm 1, into the mess and the questions and the suffering of all the rest of the psalms, and end up in the praise and delight of Psalm 150. [Psalm 1 and Psalm 150]
