Do you have any other comments on the sermon or on the prospect of experiencing more of God? Add comments below.

Chris commented in the fact that the psalm repeatedly says talks about what God does. There is nothing about what David does except the last line “And I will live in the house of the Lord forever”. Even that is really talking about God’s goodness and provision. In other words, the reality is that no matter how much we do for God, He has done far more for us.
