Psalm 49 is a great reminder that we need to see our earthly troubles, and the earthly success of the wicked, through the eyes of eternity. It is so hard for us to do that sometimes - we are timebound creatures and really have no way to truly grasp the concept or reality of eternity. Yet, as much as we are able, we must. By faith.
Psalm 50 is a reminder that ritual and sacrifice do not impress God - we need to worship Him from the heart.
In Acts we see the prescription of a healthy church. They came together on the Lord's Day to be strengthened by hearing the Word and fellowshipping together, which gave them the energy they needed to live and serve in their individual stations during the week.
It's interesting to note what happens immediately after Paul raises Eutychus from the dead - they continued on with the evening, fellowshipping together and celebrating the Lord's Supper. As Rayburn says.... The church's life is sustained primarily and most importantly by Word and sacrament, by the fellowship of the saints, and miracles are just the icing on the cake.
I love the humanity of this story - Eutychus falling asleep during the sermon. Being Christians doesn't make us infallible.
