The Route of the Righteous
Pastor Jack taught from Ps 18:20-36, the second of a multi-part look at Psalm 18, and David’s example of a righteous walk, God’s power, and a response of praise. A practical point to ask yourself is: Have you lost that loving feeling toward God? You can cultivate it by walking in humility, remembering God’s works, and openly declaring His praise. Listen to “The Route of the Righteous.
