“Who Are We in God’s Eyes?”
Ever wonder what God thinks of you? David in the Old Testament book of Psalms, chapter 8, gives us the answer and a reason to live. And he begins this ancient song by inviting us to say with him to the Lord, “How majestic is your name in all the earth!” With the starting place of praise, we are lifted up by the Lord in honor so that we can lift him up in praise.
(Psalm 8:1) ALL CREATION SAYS, “PRAISE THE LORD!”
(Psalm 8:2) EVEN THE SMALLEST CHILDREN PRAISE THE LORD.
(Psalm 8:3-4) THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH WERE CREATED TO DRAW OUR PRAISE TO THE LORD.
(Psalm 8:5-8) YOU AND I, WERE MADE TO SHARE GOD’S KINGDOM AND RULE OVER HS CREATION.
(Psalm 8:9) SO WE SAY, “PRAISE THE LORD!”
The Big Idea: The majesty and greatness of our Lord is seen in all creation, but especially in and through us, so praise him.
