Majesty on Display
Our God is without comparison. His majesty is on display all around us. Psalm 19 reminds us that the heavens declare the glory of God, and yet how many days do we go through not seeing Him? Oh, we'll praise Him for a glorious sunset or when we get the opportunity to visit some natural wonder, but we fail to recognize the hand of God in the daily details of creation. Genesis 1:1 provides such a short concise statement of creation, that it is easy to miss the grandeur of it all: the fact that God made everything from heaven to earth. We ignore these truths because we know what they require of us. We know that it means we are derived; it means we aren't really in control; it means that we don't get to make the rules. May we see God in all of His creative glory and may we respond with submissive hearts as we bow to the King of the universe.
This Sunday we will start two new teaching series. In the Bible study hour we will begin to consider the Sermon on the Mount with a focus this weekend on the proper use of the law as we set a foundation for understanding Jesus's teaching. In the morning worship we will begin a series on Genesis 1-11 called Origins as we dig into the implications of Genesis 1:1-2 in all their brevity; we will also worship around the table as we consider the life that God gives beyond the physical realm. The evening worship will turn our attention to Psalm 119 as we look at the third verse of a Psalm that captures the walk of faith. I trust that God will use His Word to continue shaping us into His image and to see His glory. May God bring you safely to worship this week!
