“Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people…Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name”– Psalm 96:3,8
We spend a lot of time talking about things of little or no value– such as our desires and difficulties. Some talk more about the weather than the wonders of God. The fact is, there are a lot of things not worth talking about. But there is one thing worthy of our attention at all times in all places, and that is the Lord. The following article from the Baptist Bible Hour reminds us of this:
Why should we put our reputation, our comfortableness, even our lives in danger in order to spread the name of Jesus Christ around the world? Ultimately, the psalmist reminds us, the motivation is not the worthiness of people, but the worth-it-ness of Christ.
Declare the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ among the heathen! Exalt His name where it has never even been heard! Tell of His surpassing majesty wherever you go. Why? Because He is worth it! Because He is due all the praise of all people everywhere.
No matter how well you speak of Him, you cannot exaggerate God’s glory or worthiness. No matter how far you go, or who you speak with, around the globe no one is exempted from this command: “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name!”
He created the earth and heaven. He breathes life into people, sustains our existence, and even came and died for the sins of His creatures. This Lord, this Savior is due the worship of all His creation.
Make it the determination of your heart today to give the Lord the glory due His name, by declaring and exalting His wonderful name.
Is there a co-worker who does not know Christ? Is there a family member with whom you have not shared the good news? Is there a nation to which you have opportunity to go, or send, in His name? Declare His wonders among all people!
