This December I have had the joy of preaching through four psalms that in various ways point forward to the Messiah, psalms that are quoted and alluded to in the New Testament, sometimes even by Jesus himself. While there are so many more I could have preached on, I chose to preach on Pss. 2, 102, 110, and 22. In leading the church I pastor through these psalms I have personally benefited and grown so much in my understanding and love for Christ as the long-awaited Son of David and Son of God. As you celebrate the birth of our Savior this week, I hope these messages might do the same for you.

Merry Christmas!
