Perhaps Tom Cochrane was onto something with his song: “Life is Highway”. Like roads our lives ebb and flow. Life certainly has its share of roadblocks, traffic jams and accidents. Like pilgrims, we progress towards our desired destination. Eugene Peterson writes, “we are people who spend our lives going someplace, going to God, and our path for getting there is the Way, Jesus Christ”.
In this short series we take a look at the Psalms of Ascent (Ps 120-134). Traditionally God’s people sang these songs as they pilgrimaged towards Jerusalem to worship the Lord. These Psalms provided the weary traveler with important spiritual markers. Today we can still encounter that same God who guides us along the “straight and narrow”.
