Creation Glorifies God
King David loved God. He wrote a psalm, or song, to celebrate how great God is. This is what he wrote:“The heavens show us the glory of God—how great He is. When we look up into the sky we can see what God created. Every day and every night what we see in the heavens continues to tell us about God. The heavens we see don’t tell us about God with words, but the message that they show us about God is seen by all the people of the world. “We can see God’s glory in the movement of the sun. It is like an athlete running a course. It rises in the same place every morning and then sets at the end of the day in another place. Everyone and everything can feel its heat.”David continued:“The Lord’s instruction is perfect. It renews life. What God says is trustworthy. The Lord’s instructions make our hearts glad and help us see clearly. When people respond in awe and love of God, it is pure and lasts forever. Instructions from the Lord are reliable and righteous. They are more desirable than pure gold and they are sweeter than fresh honey. In addition, God’s instructions warn His servants. When they are kept, there is great reward.“No one can keep track of all his sins; sometimes we don’t even realize we are sinning when we disobey God! God, clean up our hidden flaws. Keep your servant from choosing to sin too, and don’t let sin be in control. Then, I will be blameless and cleansed from my rebellion against You. I want everything I think or say to be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.”Christ Connection: All of creation displays the glory of God—how great He is—although not perfectly. The perfect revelation of God’s glory is found in Jesus, who came to show us exactly what God is like. Because Jesus is God, He is the perfect display of God’s glory.

"God is worthy of all the praise we can give—and more! All of creation glorifies God and helps us understand things about His power and goodness. But creation alone isn’t enough for us to have a relationship with God.Thankfully, God also gave us His Word. When we read our Bibles, we are reading God’s loving instructions to people. In the Bible, we learn everything we need to know to love God and have a relationship with Him through Jesus. Then, we can more fully glorify God with our lives."
