Catechesis Notes for the Week —Praying the Psalms: Psalm 1—This week we begin a series of commentaries on all 150 Psalms. The Psalms are prayers of faith.  Luther called them an exposition of what it means to trust in God under the First Commandment. Psalm 1 declares that the “blessed man” is the one who is rooted and anchored in God’s Word.  He does not walk in the way of the wicked or stand with sinners or sit with scoffers, which is the way of unbelief and rejection of God.  Instead, he delights in God’s Law, the Word of the Lord, and meditates upon it day and night.  The blessed man, who delights in God’s Word, is like a tree that is planted by streams of living water that will not fail to bring forth the wholesome fruits of faith. The ungodly will perish in their unbelief. But the blessed man is righteous by virtue of the gift of God’s Word that is received and believed.  Ultimately, Jesus is that Blessed Man because He delights in the Law of the Lord and He meditates upon it day and night.  This state of blessedness becomes ours for Christ’s sake through faith in the Word of the Gospel by which we are declared righteous for Jesus’ sake.CP180916
