I once heard
a story told about Albert Einstein that he got tired of checking out churches because their God wasn’t the God that he saw in creation.
The God he saw in the universe through his telescope was so big and grand. The churches’ God, he reported, was too small!
I don’t know if this really happened to Einstein, but it is true: often the way we see God is too small. If we could see God in his grandeur, we wouldn’t stop singing his glory to everyone around us.
Psalm 96 is a beautiful Psalm! It says, “Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations.”
That Psalm, when you read it, gives you a sense of the grandeur of God, you know. He is worthy to be worshipped and all creation should and will worship Him. And we should do it over, and over again.
The first line of the psalm says, “Sing to the Lord a new song!” We should sing so loud to the Lord that others will want to know who Jesus is. Then we can then tell them about the grandeur of God, a God who loves them so much he sent his Son to die for them.
Let’s be a reflection of God’s grandeur, and be a light to our world in our generation.
“If we could see God in his grandeur, we wouldn’t stop singing his glory to everyone around us.”
