Christmas Devotion Four - God's People Ask for Salvation

Read Psalm 80:1-19

JUST THE FACTS:
1. Where does God sit? (v. 1)
2. What did this writer ask for? (vv. 2-3)
3. What happened to the vine? (vv. 8-11, 16)

LET'S TALK:
1. Why do you think the writer used the word picture sof a vine? Why not just say "Israel"?
2. What did the people promise to do if God sent them a ruler? (v 18) What did they mean by saying they would call on God's name and not turn away?

WHY THIS MATTERS:
God's people continued to plead with God to show mercy and save them. He answered this plea many centuries later by sending his Son, Jesus.

POINTS OF INTEREST:
80:1 Cherubim are a special kind of Angel. They were guardians protecting the way to the tree of life in the Garden of Eden. They also protected the ark of the covenant in the tabernacle and in the temple. In this psalm they are said to guard God's heavenly throne. Cherubim are described as having wings and a combination of human and animal characteristics.
