Ascent

Psalm 120-134

You’ve probably heard the phrase, “Life is a journey". Journey is a common metaphor for finding meaning and purpose in life, especially when we face challenges. Those who look to the Bible for hope and help consistently encounter journey metaphors that vividly convey God's wisdom for the everyday stuff of life.

One section of the Psalms, called the Psalms of Ascent, were written to instruct the nation of Israel on the pilgrimages they took to Jerusalem each year. Though written three thousand years ago, these psalms faithfully equip all who read them with vital, compelling instruction for the journey of life.

Join us this summer as we examine these psalms and put their wisdom into practice in our day-to-day lives!
