Passage: Luke 24:44

A Book Full Of Christ!

…all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me

(LUKE 24:44)

We have probably little idea how much deep truth is contained in the book of Psalms. No part of the Bible perhaps is better known in the letter, and none so little understood in the spirit. We err greatly if we suppose that it is nothing but a record of David’s feelings, of David’s experience, David’s praises, and David’s prayers. The hand that held the pen was generally David’s. But the subject matter was often something far deeper and higher than the history of the son of Jesse. The book of Psalms, in a word, is a book full of Christ,—Christ suffering,—Christ in humiliation,—Christ dying,—Christ rising again,—Christ coming the second time,—Christ reigning over all. Both the advents [of Christ] are here,—the advent in suffering to bear the cross,—the advent in power to wear the crown. Both of [His] kingdoms are here,—the kingdom of [His] grace, during which the elect are gathered,—and the kingdom of [His] glory, when every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. [Beloved] let us always read the Psalms with a peculiar reverence. Let us say to ourselves as we read, “A greater than David is here!”
