- J. Barrie Shepherd - "Out of the Depths" (January 18, 1987)
In Psalm 130 we have an example of one whose cry comes out of the depths, the depths of both personal and collective suffering, and who is rescued through the forgiveness of God and drawn into God's Kingdom of life. We must posture ourselves in hope, in radical trust that God will rescue all of creation from the depths in final victory. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 25:00. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 48:46.
Key quotation: “‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you.’ That is what it really means to live waiting on the Lord. It means a life that is clearly oriented toward hope. Not empty optimism that things will somehow get better but hope, dynamic hope in the Lord. It means a life of radical trust. Trust that in God’s hands the future is worth living for, and working for, building for, even dying for, but never killing for.”
