Psalm 51

April 16, 2020

One person we can rely on to always tell the truth and be there when we need Him is God. How foolish it would be for us to question God’s existence and His power! That’s the theme of Al’s study today in Psalm fifty-one, as we once again see David’s remorse over his sin with Bathsheba.

This Psalm is not only well known for its content, but also for what happened to inspire David to write it. David wrote these beautiful words when he was feeling great remorse over the terrible sin he committed with Bathsheba, and his efforts to cover his tracks. We’ve all messed up, but probably not to the extent that we see here from David.

Psalm fifty-one was written in direct response to David’s moral failure with Bathsheba. You know, many people today try to explain away their sin.  But God wants us to come clean, and agree with Him. Our series is in the Psalms, but today, pastor Al will spend most of our time together in Second Samuel eleven, as we look at the facts behind what went on that night when David saw Bathsheba taking a bath.

If you enjoy baking, you know that following a recipe in the correct order is essential to success. You wouldn’t put an empty cake pan in the oven for half an hour and then take it out, pour in the cake mix and expect to have a cake, right? Our relationship with God is much like a recipe - there are certain steps we must take to not only establish that relationship, but also to maintain it.

The resurrection of Jesus was without question the most significant event in human history. If Jesus had died on the cross and not risen from the dead, then you and I would still be condemned due to our sins. But the truth is He is risen indeed! Join us for one final look at the most wonderful act of love ever performed - the resurrection of Jesus.

Today we’ll bring you part one of pastor Al’s final message in his passion series. Jesus suffered a painful and humiliating death on a cross. But if the story ended there, where would we be? We’d still be condemned for our sins. But Jesus rose from the dead! Hallelujah to that!

Today we will continue a series for the passion week, by looking at the crucifixion of Jesus. The facts are familiar to all of us. The pain, torture, and humiliation Jesus suffered at the hands of his murderers should remind us all that He allowed it to happen for one reason: He loves us!

What a marvelous scene we see depicted in the story of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem!  Plot, movement, atmosphere, emotion – they’re all here.  High drama at its very best!  An innocent man is about to be murdered! And it’s even more shocking because we know that God knows it’s going to happen and does nothing to stop it.

Here on The Dwelling Place, we’ll spend this week looking at the events leading up to the crucifixion of Christ, and of course, the resurrection of our Lord. It all begins with the Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem - an arrival that was carefully planned and carried out to fulfill Old Testament prophecy.

In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
