The Psalms is probably the most popular book in the Old Testament. It is a book of poetry and is regarded as the hymn book of ancient Israel.
In the Psalms, we can find comfort, teaching, rebuke, and exhortation as we see our own experiences mirrored in those of the psalmist. While not all of the Bible is written directly to the Church, all Scripture is profitable for the Church.
We can learn important lessons from teachings which are primarily Jewish. For example, the Jewish Temple can be considered a prefigurement of the body of Christ, made up of all believers and indwelt by the Holy Spirit; the battles in the Psalms speak to us of our spiritual warfare against principalities and powers, against the forces of darkness in the heavenly places; the material blessings of Israel on earth point us to our spiritual blessings in the heaven lies in Christ-and so forth.This devotional commentary will lead you to greater appreciation and worship of the God of our salvation.
