Psalms 120-134, possibly the most exquisite single group of psalms, are described as ‘Songs of Ascents’. They recall the journeys of pilgrims from all over the land ‘up’ to Jerusalem to keep the feasts of the Lord. And as the people walked, they sang.
God’s people today may not make quite such a journey but, as Alec Motyer contests, in living the Christian life we have all embarked on a pilgrimage of the heart. The life of faith is to be lived on the move, through varying terrains but with a single destination – as we walk with eyes fixed on Jesus.
A devotional read to hearten both weary and sure-footed travellers.
Alec Motyer was Principal of Trinity Theological College, Bristol, and a vicar in London and Bournemouth before retirement. His writing career spans nearly five decades and includes ‘Treasures of the King: Psalms from the Life of David’ (IVP). He lives with his wife Beryl in Poynton, Cheshire.
