Confession of Faith – The Household of God

"Creed" (c) 2007 Kyle Ragsdale

For the second part of our series on the Psalms of Ascents I am going to attempt to write a confession of faith that takes the major themes of each Psalm and weaves them through the New Testaments use of that theme.  Here is my first attempt from Psalm 127.

Corporate Confession of Faith

From themes in Psalm 127:

(Psalm 127:1-2, John 14:1-22, 1 Cor 5:1, Eph 2:19, Hebrews 3:6, 10:21, 1 Peter 2:5)

Leader: The Lord has built a mansion for his people.

People: Jesus has gone before us to prepare a room

in his Father’s house.

A house not made by hands but eternal in the heavens

built on Christ the cornerstone.

Let us not be troubled.

Leader: You are members of this household.

People: We know that we are no longer strangers and aliens,

but fellow citizens with the saints and members

of the household of God.

Leader:  We have a great high priest over the House of God

People:  Jesus Christ is our high priest and provider,

in him we have all things.

He is way, the truth and the life.

He is the banisher of anxious thoughts and toil.

Leader: Let us hold fast to the foundations of our faith,

built on the apostles and prophets.

People:  We are living stones being built up

as a spiritual house,

If indeed we hold fast our confidence

and our boasting in our hope.

Leader:  Jesus has gone to prepare a place for you,

but do not fear he will come again.

People: Come again, Lord Jesus!
