Psalm 5

Psalm 5

(Read Psalm 5)

We find in this Psalm something that is an anathema or horror to many Christians; we are so imbued with the wonderful truth ‘God is Love’, 1 John 4:16 that it often produces in us blindness to the truth that God is holy in nature and is the thrice Holy God. Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8

Here we find expressed something of the horror of being ungodly, it is expressed in a number of ways, boasting, lies, bloodshed, deceit, fraudulent behaviours, unreliable in their words, flattery and rebelliousness against God. God hates such because they insult their Creator God with every thought, word, action and attitude.

God has compassion. Through the cross he made a way whereby his enemies could become his family and discover the wonder of God as a refuge from his wrath, to learn the riches of his blessings and the comfort of knowing his constant care for us. With this comes the privilege of worship and fellowship.
