Psalm 22 begins in despair, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" It lifts up complaints of mistreatment and mockery and threats. And, intertwined with these laments, are words of remembrance of what God and done and a call to God to do more.
Verse 22 begins with "Save me" but then shifts to "You have rescued me."
How do rescued people respond?
Thank God and make those thanks public. Give thanks in the middle of the congregation.
Those people present there at that place will hear of God's work. And not only them. All of the families of the earth will know what God has done and what God can do. People living now and people to come.
