Hey everyone! How are you? I hope all is well!
“The world appears very little to a soul that contemplates the greatness of God.”
-Brother Lawrence (1614-1691), author, The Practice of the Presence of God
“O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.”
-Psalm 8:1 NLT
Your majestic name fills the earth!- How illustrious is the name of Jesus throughout the world! His incarnation, birth, humble and obscure life, preaching, miracles, passion, death, resurrection, and ascension, are celebrated through the whole world. His religion, the gifts and graces of his Spirit, his people – Christians – his Gospel and the preachers of it are everywhere spoken of. No name is so universal, no power and influence so generally felt, as those of the Savior of mankind. Amen.
Your glory is higher than the heavens.- The heavens are glorious, the most glorious of all the works of God which the eye of man can reach; but the glory of God is infinitely above even these. The words also seem to intimate that no power, earthly or diabolical, can lessen or injure that glory. The glory and honor which God has by the Gospel shall last through time, and through eternity; and of that glory none shall be able to rob him, to whom majesty and dominion are eternally due. This has been applied by some to the resurrection of our Lord. He rose from the dead, and ascended above all heavens; and by these his glory was sealed, his mission accomplished, and the last proof given to his preceding miracles.
