Who Considers?

Exalting Christ in community and mission

Who Considers?

 

The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

Who considers the power of your anger, and your wrath according to the fear of you?

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

– Psalm 90:10-12

In the heart of Psalm 90, Moses poses a provocative question: Who considers the power of your anger…? His question, more than 3,000 years old, is as timely as ever for Christians today: As potentially uncomfortable as it may be for us, how often do we consider God’s wrath?

This morning, as we attempt to do what Psalm 90 asks of us as a church, we will see that: Considering God’s wrath leads to 1.) Gospel gratitude, and 2.) Godly urgency, without 3.) Worldly anxiety.
