“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?” (Psalms 8:1-4) [Our Abba Father was gracious enough to send His Holy Spirit to convince man of sin, righteousness, and judgment. It is by these visits that man is provided what he needs to be saved. Were God to withhold them, there would be nothing in the soul of man but sin, darkness, hardness, corruption, and death. Why did He do this, because:] “…God SO LOVED THE WORLD that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) [I’m so glad that our awesome Abba Father tolerated man’s disobedience for all these years and then sent Jesus to prove God’s unselfish love for us!] “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but TO SAVE THE WORLD THROUGH HIM. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:17-18) [Oh, I am so glad for your AWESOME LOVE FOR US Abba Father!] “Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and WE ARE HIS; WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalms 100:3-5) [Again, God so loved the world! Not just the Jewish people!] “Consequently, you [Gentiles] are no longer foreigners and strangers, but FELLOW CITIZENS WITH GOD’S PEOPLE and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” (Ephesians 2:19-20) [Just think, at one time we were nothing, now we are members of Christ, bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh!] “In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ …This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, MEMBERS TOGETHER OF ONE BODY, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 3:4-6)

Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that THE LORD IS GOOD AND HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!
