The Glorious Gospel in Two Happy Psalms Dec 13, 2007
If I had any reason to live in 1955, it is to attend the services at Westminster Chapel when Pastor Jones preached these sermons. To the best of my knowledge, nobody preached the gospel from Psalms as stunningly as he did. Psalms 1 and 107 are Biblical human psychology; a true, honest, unashamed, sober view of postlapsarian men, created to find their true happiness in living for and enjoying their Maker, yet plunged themselves into a fatal hopeless state of sin after the Fall; showing its ugly face in four symptoms described in Psalm 107; wandering, hungering, thirsting, fainting in the desert looking for a city of habitation, being bound in affliction and iron, being sick to the point of death, and being hammered mercilessly by the passions of the flesh and the storms of life.
Pastor Jones brilliantly correlates these symptoms to the examples in the life of the so-called modern men by drawing from their gloomy pathetic literary and academic work (e.g., Darwin, Byron, Henley and Russell) to demonstrate they are real. He then magnifies the sweetness of the glorious grace of God in Christ even more brilliantly according to the flow of both Psalms; the essence of the gospel, where God performs the greatest miracle of turning wilderness into standing water, dry ground into water spring representing the event of regeneration, shattering the gates of brass, breaking the bands of iron, sending forth his Word to heal and restore, calming the storm, satisfying and filling with goodness, and thus delivering from distress those who "cried unto the LORD in their trouble."
Don't miss this sober yet glorious and joyful preaching, and then, after you read it, join the chorus of the redeemed praising God, "O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Amen."
