1 Chronicles 16:23-27

Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his wonderful acts among all the peoples, for great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are not gods at all. But the Lord made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before him. Strength and joy are in his place.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We see all the universe around us and realize there had to be a master designer, and that was You. Lord, You are such a marvelous God who fills the entire universe, which is more extraordinary than anything we could imagine. Yet, You are so intimate that You know our every thought, every heartbreak we face, and all the pain we have. You also know our every sin.

You are great and glorious; You did not leave us condemned in our sins but sent your Son to save us from all our sins. The Old Testament’s good news was looking forward to the promise of Jesus, who would come, bringing salvation. Our good news is knowing and trusting the fulfillment of that promise; Jesus died on the cross so that we have eternal life.

Salvation came only through the forgiveness of sins Jesus won for all believers: Old Testament, New Testament, all generations, and us. In Your love is where true peace is found. Yet, there is only one way to heaven: through Jesus; all other roads are dead ends, leading to eternal death and suffering. Any way mankind comes up with are delusions and fallacies that lead to false gods.

How do we know what is the truth? It is because Jesus is the only one raised from the dead and witnessed by others. So, by faith in Him, we know we will be raised from the dead because Your Word tells us so.

Your Spirit is always within us who believe. We honor You and praise You for all the great things You have done. Let us sing Your praise and glory before others so they know the truth of Your salvation. Allow us to share the love and mercy You have for all people; Your desire for them is eternal life through Christ. Please send Your Holy Spirit to those around us so that as we share the good news of Your salvation, they will know, believe, and trust in Jesus as their Savior. Amen.

Forgiveness of sins, the removal of guilt, and eternal life are for all people but are only delivered through faith in the one who has won the gift for you: Jesus. That is why He deserves all our honor, glory, and praise.
