As believers, we view the Old Testament, including the Psalms, as fulfilled in Christ Jesus. Sometimes, this presents a challenge because of obscurities in language and culture over the centuries. Today, we are going to ease into this challenge by selecting a Psalm that has a clear Messianic theme—Psalm 118. It’s a call to salvation for the lost and a reflection on salvation for the saved.
