Preaching the Word of the Lord – Psalm 81:1-16

“Listen” (Psalm 81:8,13).

* Why should we listen?

(a) We should listen because there’s something worth hearing.

(b) We should listen because there’s something we need to hear.

(c) We should listen because there’s something we need to hear.

* The call to listen – “My people” (Psalm 81:8,13); “I will admonish you” (Psalm 81:8); (c) “Following the Lord’s ways” (Psalm 81:13).

* What do we hear when we listen?

(a) We hear about God’s love. He loves us, and He has saved us. This is Good News.

(b) We hear about our sin. This is what we need to hear, even if we don’t want to hear it. If we don’t listen to the bad news concerning our sin, we won’t appreciate the Good News of God’s love.

(c) We hear about holiness. This is our wholeness. It comes to us from the Lord. It is the gift of his love. It is also our calling. In love, God is calling us to be holy. He’s calling us to receive our wholeness – to become what He created us to be.
