Judging By Our Faithfulness

John Collins07/22/2012

Psalm 96 Tells us to rejoice by singing a new song unto the Lord.  Bless His name, and tell of His salvation every day.

As a nation, we should declare His glory to other nations.  We should tell of the marvelous things He has done for us to all the people of the world.

God is great, and greatly to be praised.  He alone should be the God we fear.  All other gods of the people in this world are worthless idols, but the Lord is the Creator of the heavens.  He created splendor and majesty.

We should serve the One True God because of his glory and strength, and give Him the glory due to his name!  All the earth should fear the Lord.  We should declare to the nations that the Lord reigns!

The writer of the Psalm says, "Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice.  Let the sea roar, and all that fills it.  Let the field exult, and everything in it!"  Even the trees of the forest sing before the Lord, because He comes to judge the earth.

The Lord will judge the world in righteousness.  He will judge the peoples in His faithfulness.

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Do we praise God every day for His glory?  Do we fear Him, or do we give our devotion to something or someone else?  Do we declare God to others around us, or do we put God on a shelf and ignore Him?  Do we become legalistic, telling others that He will judge the world by the rules they follow?  Or do we tell them that He will judge the world by their faithfulness to Him?  Are we faithful?
