"Journey Songs"

The collection of 15 Psalms that we are studying, was actually used as a mini ‘song book’ within the entire song book of songs/psalms.  It was sung by faithful Hebrews (Jews) who made their journey toward Jerusalem to worship at the temple for each of their three major feasts.  Every year, three times a year, as they climbed upward to Jerusalem to worship God, these songs were sung and/or meditated on.  It became part of their framework, it marked their times as a community.  The familiar words would remind them of their salvation in God, it would remind them of their renewed commitment to him and remind them that they were a blessed community responding to the gifts and faithfulness God had given them through the generations.  It taught them to seek God when they were afraid, joyful, anxious, etc. 

These were the songs that Jesus sang; these were the songs that Paul sang; these were the songs that spoke truth and became part of the fabric of God’s people and therefore these are our songs.
