Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
When I was younger, my family would take a summer trip to Custer, South Dakota. One of my favorite activities while there was to sit outside at night and stare up at the sky in wonder. In Custer, the summer sky is clear and completely full of stars, revealing the many constellations above us. The night sky took my breath away.
Have you ever thought about how incredible all parts of life are? How many things had to happen or had to go just right for all these amazing things – humans, animals, trees, oceans, stars – to be present? The short answer, God. All of these are here because there is a master plan, His master plan.
So why would God, who masterfully created all these incredible things, choose to rule the world through humans? We can learn so much about our loving God when we study His creation. This Sunday, we will explore Psalm 8 as the Song of Creation. I hope you can join us!
Sharing Christ’s Victory,
