Seeking God

  • Series: Summer Psalms #2 of 3
  • Scripture: Ps 27
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

Psalm 27 is a fine one to return to regularly to recalibrate your spiritual life. The writer (very likely King David himself) uses two central metaphors to express his spiritual thirst: he seeks to dwell in God’s house, and he seeks God’s face. Being in the temple of God at Jerusalem is what the psalmist longs for; for under the Old Covenant that was the place to go, to be as much in the presence of the living God as it was possible for a sinner to be. But the core plea of this psalm would only be fully realised when God took on human flesh, creating the true temple – the living presence of God on earth.
