God’s Ageless Greatness

Read: Psalm 145
The ageless Christian music group Newsboys has a new song that is titled “The Greatness of Our God.”  The lyrics proclaim “In awesome wonder, He reigns forever, we know the greatness of our God. His power is endless, He lives within us, we know the greatness of our God.”  In Psalm 145 David proclaims this truth in many different ways and in verse 4 says, “One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.”
People today have many reasons for wanting to live good long lives.  There is retirement, family, grandchildren, traveling, and hobbies to pursue.  Some spend their days volunteering and serving others which is a very Christ-like way to put our faith in action.  But what if we took this verse of Psalm 145 to heart? What if our main focus of living a good long life would be to proclaim God’s greatness to the following generations?
The Bible is full of examples of this.  One generation stepping up to pass along their faith to the next.  Even in our failures and shortcomings we can testify to how God forgives us and restores us through his Son Jesus.  We are not perfect, but we are perfected through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With so many issues and strong feelings swirling around our culture today this is a truth that needs to be shared widely.
The Newsboys begin their song by singing “From the dawn of creation this world has been crying out for hope, for a hero to save us.”  In Psalm 145 David says, “They (each generation) speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty… They tell of the power of your awesome works… They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.”  Let’s join David and the Newsboys in proclaiming the greatness of our God from generation to generation.  
Make it Personal:  Perhaps we should ask ourselves, “what am I doing to proclaim the greatness of God and the hope of Jesus Christ to the next generation?”  No matter what age you are there is always a generation coming behind you. We must not fail them by failing to share with them how to live a good life in and through Jesus Christ.  He is the one who has come to save us!
Have a blessed week everyone, Pastor Glen Rhodes
