Today is Psalm Wednesday
Our passage today is Psalm 118
Psalm 118 was probably originally a liturgy response as the people were approaching and entering the temple. The first three verses echo what we saw last week, “the Steadfast love of the lord endures forever’, then look at vs. 20 was said as they approached the temple ‘Open the gates that I may enter through them.
In between there is an accounting of difficult times, struggles and pain.
However, especially as we read this just prior to Holy Week, we cannot help but see the work and purpose of Christ, Christ live and Christ Crucified. He is the cornerstone.
Read this twice, once imaging going to the temple even while struggles are on your mind. Then read it from the perspective of the cross and the resurrection.
