Monday is for Discussion

Another offering for the poetry project. We live in a post-resurrection world. We live in a world that has been radically changed by “the news of a great joy that will be for all the people” (Luke 2:10) and a Savior who rose from the dead (Luke 24:7). We live in a God inhabited world and it effects (or should) everything we do, including, reading the Psalms.

Read Psalm 24:1-10 (ESV)

Brick WallA Psalm of David Re-heard

Its all Yours,
   Everything I see and everyone I don’t
There’s never been a day
   When it wasn’t Yours
For You conceived it
   And grew it up from the ocean depths
   And placed Your peoples on the river banks

Where You dwell, I cannot ascend
    I cannot stand in such a holy place
I don’t have clean hands 
    I don’t have a pure heart
    I often dwell with falsehood
    My heart deceives itself
How can I receive any blessing from You,
    with an unrighteous heart?
But You are a God of salvation.

    You are a God who gives righteousness
    You are the God who replaces new hearts in stoney places
    You are the God who draws hearts
    You are the God who gives grace
And causes the blind to seek sight.     Selah   

So, like ancient gates
    I will lift up my head
    that the King of glory may inhabit my heart.
But who is the King of Glory?
.   The Lord, the scarred and pierced
.   The Lord, triumphant over death.
So, like ancient gates
.   I will lift up my head,
.   that the King of glory may conquer my heart.
Who is the King of glory?
.   The Lamb of God who takes away sins
.   The Lamb of God, slain from the foundations of the earth,
He is the King of glory!                           Selah

Go to Psalm 25.
