The Psalms and Pentecostal Spirituality: Psalm 63 as a Model

This lecture approaches Psalm 63 from the perspective of Pentecostal spirituality, a spirituality that is characterized by an integration of orthodoxy (right belief), orthopraxy (right practice), and orthopathy (right affections). The passionate tone of Psalm 63, along with its prominent theme of divine encounter, resonate deeply with the Pentecostal ethos, which values both passion and encounter. Dr. Martin argues that a holistic interpretation of Scripture (especially the poetic literature) must include attention to the affective dimension of the text and to the affective concerns of the interpreter. The affections have a role in the interpretation of Scripture, and the affections of the interpreter should be formed/transformed by the encounter with the biblical text. After arguing for the affective approach and outlining its components, an affective interpretation of Psalm 63 that intersects with Pentecostal spirituality is offered. The lecture concludes with implications of the study for Pentecostal discipleship and formation.

A Biblical Perspective on Spirit-Filled Worship

The Pentecostal movement has radically transformed Christianity in the last 100 years. Eminent Pentecostal historian Walter Hollenweger has argued that Pentecostalism’s ‘most important contribution’ to the larger Christian tradition has been in the practice of worship. Although Pentecostals have influenced Christian worship practices, we have been slow to take full advantage of our influential position in that arena. While many practitioners have studied recent trends in worship and music, we must make the effort to approach the topic of worship from biblical and theological perspectives. Beginning with Ephesians 5:18, Dr. Martin offers a biblical overview regarding the nature and practice of Spirit-filled worship. It is in the context of worship that people are saved, sanctified, baptized in the Spirit, healed, and filled with the hope of Christ’s coming. Holding to our doctrines on paper is not enough – we must put them into practice if our movement is to have a future.
