1Chronicles 16:23-26 Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation. Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations. For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
The Great Commission all the way back in the book of Chronicles. They were to show forth His salvation every day. They were to declare His glory because He is the only true God. They were to do this among all nations.
Nothing new in the great commission really except a further explanation of how! God wants the world to know yet the church seems set on maintaining itself where it is and taking care of its own. We have become a large baby sitting facility.
You can do sports, exercise, eat, have fellowship, keep out of sin, live a clean life and a thousand other things of the same sort but little is thought about getting the gospel to the entire world. We relegate these instructions to once a month or a week or less each year.
But this is no ordinary, man made god. Others have a god that they made with their hands, an idol. Not us, we serve the God that made Heaven and Earth. He is the GOD!
Church was never meant to be about us. It is about Him and telling the world who He is and what He has done.
And how can we not emphasize that He made everything. The only reason to not accept that He is the Creator God is that you see Him as a god that you created in your own image. Another one of those idol gods.
No He is the God, the only God. We must sing to Him, show forth His salvation, declare His glory to the lost world, all of it, fear Him, and know that He is the only, one and true God, creator of the universe!
