Declare [the LORD’s] glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. ~ Psalm 96:3
When you see something amazing, you just have to share it: the grandeur of a waterfall or canyon, an astounding play or accomplishment in an athletic contest, an inspiring performance on a stage, or anything else that strikes you as rare and remarkable. You want someone to know what you saw and to share in your excitement and amazement.
The Bible is filled with awe-inspiring scenes and stories, and they are all true! God speaks, and a beautiful world unfolds before him out of nothing. God intervenes, and kingdoms rise and fall according to his plan. God acts, miracles happen, and life is never the same again.
Heaven opens, and the Son of God is born of a woman.
Shepherds come from near, wise men come from far, and they return home to tell others about the things they have heard and seen, declaring God’s glory among the nations.
Because people like them shared the good news with you, you know and trust Jesus, the Savior who came to live in your place, to die your death, and to rise again for you.
As you hear and read what the Bible says, you see more of the grandeur of God’s plan to save you, and of the heaven that is waiting for you. Through His Word, you witness the awesome way that God won the victory over sin and death for you. The Holy Spirit works through that Word to change your life forever!
Thank God for those who have shared Jesus with you. Then go, spread the news! Tell those near and far about the marvelous deeds God has done for you and for them. Invite them to attend church with you. Share a devotion on social media. Talk to a friend about what you’ve heard, seen, and read. What God has done is too amazing to keep to yourself!
Amazing God, your deeds are marvelous and amazing. Move me to declare your praises wherever I go. Amen.
