GREAT PRAISE FOR OUR GREAT GOD – November 18

The larger the diamond is, or the piece of solid gold, the more their value is. The greater one's talents are, the more spectacular will one's work be. What shall we say, then, when the psalmist writes in Psalm 48:1, "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness"? That greatness is immeasur- able! He is the God of infinite greatness. It is worthy of our notice that the psalmist declares that He is greatly to be praised in His city and in the mountain of His holiness. For although He must be praised by all men, His greatness is praised in a special way in His church. His greatness is so obvious when we look at the universe which He created and at all its creatures. What a vast uni¬verse it is! What a great God He is who made it all, fills it all, upholds it all, controls all that is in it! But look at the salvation which He wrought in His only begotten Son. Look, as the psalmist did, at the city and holy mountain which He made, namely, His church in which He is praised. The psalmist has in mind Jerusalem where Mt. Moriah, His holy mountain where the temple stood, speaks of His greatness of love, mercy, and grace. It all pointed to Christ, His cross, resurrection, and ascension into heaven. Surely then we have the calling expressed thus in our versification: The Lord is great; with worthy praise Proclaim His power, His name confess, Within the city of our God, Upon His mount of holiness. We simply cannot praise Him enough. Praising Him too much is absolutely impossible. He has prepared everlasting life so that we can without ceasing continue to ...
