Save Us for Your Glory

Psalm 106 is a meditation on God’s mercy in remembering His covenant and saving His people in spite of their repeated forgetfulness and sin. The Psalmist cycles through Israel’s history, reminding people of periods on sin and the saviors that God raised up to intercede for the people like Moses and Phinehas. For the Psalmist, every time God forgives and saves, his desire to glorify and praise God increases. This is how God redeems our sin: He turns it into fuel for praise by way of forgiveness. This morning, come to worship ready to confess your sin and marvel at the forgiving grace of our covenant-keeping God. Let all the people say, “Amen! Praise the Lord!”
