Prayer for Security
On Pentecost, the first day of the Christian church, when Saint Peter was preaching the very first Christian sermon, after he got through the introduction, the main text he preached on was Psalm 16. His message was that Jesus Christ is risen. If Psalm 16 was a good enough Easter text for Saint Peter, it ought to be good enough for you.
What does Psalm 16 tell us on Easter day? Essentially it tells us two things. It’s still a psalm of David. David wrote it, and in the beginning you can see he’s crying out for something. He’s crying out for a refuge. He’s crying out for safety, a refuge, which cannot be shaken. What the psalm is going to help us understand is why we need a refuge that cannot be shaken and how we can get a refuge that cannot be shaken.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 5, 2015. Series “Pilgrim Prayer: Psalms for the Journey”. Scripture: Psalm 16:1-11.
