Psalms for Advent -- God’s Redeeming Love
Throughout the Christmas season, we make preparations with anticipation of worshiping the Lord. Psalm 130 is a part of a group of psalms (120-134) called, Psalms of Ascents. The pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem sang these songs as they went up to the city for the great Jewish festivals. As such, these songs not only were for worship as they walked, but, also, they prepared their hearts for the corporate worship they would engage in at the Temple.
Because of Christmas, we are forgiven of our sins, have hope in God’s promises, and are redeemed by His Son. Let’s prepare our hearts to worship Him.
