The City of God

Jul 24, 2022    Grayson Gilbert

This psalm focuses on extolling the virtues of what it calls "The City of God," which is Jerusalem. The city is seen higher above all the rest of the cities on earth and it is celebrated for its virtues and goodness. While the reasons they celebrate are many, they all focus on the fact that God cares for them and has given them this special significance. As the psalmist portrays this reality in song, he illustrates God's care for His people and this city by highlighting that God dwells in their midst, preserves them from their enemies, and sustains them in His lovingkindness in all of life and death.
