Re: Verse reading–Psalm 118 (day three)
“From the house of the Lord we bless you.”  A friend of mine, in commenting a few days ago on verses 26 and 27 of this Psalm, which give us a picture of people assembling for a worship service, made this remark: Some songs you just want to sing in a group.  That’s exactly right.  The psalmist recounts how the Lord has rescued, saved, preserved, defended, and delivered time after time.  And near the end of this Psalm, he gathers with people to remember together with them all the ways in which the Lord has saved their necks.  It seems strange to say it, but people forget these kinds of things.  We just do.  So we need to remind each other.  This is one way we come to know God better.  Some songs you just want to sing in a group.
