Who am I?

When I attempt to think about all that God has done, this final portion of this passage (Psalm 8:4) it just blows me away. Truly, who are we that a righteous and holy God would even hear our pleas, or listen to our prayers, or even desire that we know Him personally? You are a good, good Father, and I am grateful that you loved me first.

Psalm 8:1-4, “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”

Not Ordinary

When we describe our kitchen to other people we always talk about new appliances, or new counters, or even our new silverware. But, we never describe the wall color to someone. The reason is simple: it is ordinary. Everyone has it, it’s not worth mentioning, and so we don’t even consider it. Sometimes, very sadly, we treat Jesus the same way. He has become a routine to us, a regular occurrence, and sometimes … even plain. We need to very careful to ensure He isn’t treated this way. He is the Christ. He is anything by ordinary. He has conquered death and freed us from sin. Celebrate and shout His praise friends … He is EVERYTHING!


Acts 2:24, “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”
