Catechesis Notes for the Week — Psalm 125: A Prayer of Trust in the Lord’s Strength for His People—Psalm 125 continues the psalms of Ascents. Faith in Christ gives us freedom from sin and the judgment of the Law. Faith in Christ is also our strength against every foe because the Lord makes unequivocal promises to those who believe. “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.” The Lord promises protection for His people and to do us good, so that no harm will destroy our life with Him who gave His life for us. His peace abides with His faithful congregation.
