The Twenty-third Psalm by Larry Wynn

THE TWENTY-THIRD PSALM
JANUARY 28, 1996 A.M. SERVICE

INTRODUCTION

A. HOW MANY OF US CAN SAY WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE WANT?

1. ONE OF THE MARKS OF AMERICAN CULTURE IS A DISTINCT LACK

2. THIS DIS-SATISFACTION AFFECTS EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES.

OR RESPONSIBILITY.

2. IT IS A MATTER OF COMING TO JESUS, MEETING HIM FACE TO

B. WE COMMIT OUR BURDENS TO HIM.
