Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs

Colossians 3:16 (NIV)
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

Throughout history, God’s people have listened to, memorized, digested, and meditated on His Word through music

Psalm 136

Who He is
What He’s done

Structure of Psalm 136

What He’s done:

The God who watched over Israel in the Old Testament is watching over us today

How did God watch over Israel?
How does He watch over us?

Psalm 136:10-15
He rescued the Israelites from slavery to the Egyptians

Romans 6:16-18
He rescues us from slavery to sin

Psalm 136:16
He led the Israelites to the Promised Land

John 16:13-15
He leads us throughout our lives

Psalm 136:17-22
He conquered the enemies of the Israelites

Romans 8:31-39
He conquers our enemies

Two Questions:
Do you trust God to watch over your life?

To rescue and lead you?
To conquer your enemies?

Do you believe that God is unchanging?
Hebrews 13:8-“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
