Psalm 106 is an historical Psalm, and in it David carefully reviews the history of the nation of Israel from the Red Sea crossing to the entrance into the Promised Land. God blessed the nation of Israel in a tremendous way, yet the people rebelled against Him and demanded those things that were not good for them. When nothing else would suffice, God gave the people the desires of their hearts, but sent leanness to their souls.
Psalm 107:2 says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy." God's plan for spreading the Gospel is through His redeemed children. We who have had the blood of Christ applied to our lives must be faithful in verbally proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In Romans 1:16 Paul said, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." We should not be ashamed of our salvation. Too many people today who are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb do not say so. God has chosen human beings to be the instruments for sharing the Gospel. When the child of God knows he has been saved from the penalty of sin; that he is being saved from the power of sin; and that some day he will be saved from the very presence of sin, then he ought to tell a lost and dying world about it!
