Psalm 53 is not a joyful song. David’s words burn with righteous anger as he writes of atheism, evil, and God’s terrible judgment. In the middle of this scourging litany, David adopts God’s perspective, trying to find even one child of man who seeks after God. With unqualified simplicity, he sadly affirms that there is not even one. But here we are, gathering to seek God today, redeemed from our folly and blindness. As you come to worship today, thank God and rejoice that David’s prayer that salvation would come from Zion has been gloriously answered. We were not seeking God, but He was seeking us. Let Israel be glad!
