We continue to read Eugene Peterson’s, “A Long Obedience in the Same Direction” throughout April, reflecting upon Psalms 120-134, also known as the Songs of Ascent. Details on how to easily purchase the book are here.
Chapter 14 is available for download here:
Peterson summarises chapter 14 in this way: “Psalm 132 activates faith’s memory so that obedience will be sane… For obedience is not a stodgy plodding in the ruts of religion, it is a hopeful race toward God’s promises.”
- How might you develop obedience that is both “looking back in faith” and “looking forward in hope”.
Now turn your reflections into prayer.
