    This is a beautiful creation Psalm. Praise and adoration is the major theme, but verse 35 grabbed me, “But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more.” Wait a minute, we just celebrated the birth of a savior, the Messiah, who came not to judge the world, but to save it (John 3:16-17). What does it mean to say, “may sinners vanish and the wicked be no more.” Is this a statement of vengeance inserted in this Psalm of praise? I think not. This is a prayer for sinners to come to know Christ and the wicked to be redeemed. As we enter into the New Year, let’s remember that this is our job. The purpose of our salvation is to know Him and to make Him know, so that sinners vanish and the wicked are no more. Lord may it be so in 2021.
