“May Glory and Praise Be to Our Creator and Saviour 願榮耀頌讚歸給我們的創造主和救贖主“（Psalm詩篇96:1-6）
Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Splendour and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
This wonderful psalm first speaks to God’s people, then to all the nations of the earth, and finally to the whole creation itself. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the psalmist saw a day when all the earth would sing to God songs, especially a new song which could come from old saints as they gained fresh awareness of His love and grace. These songs also proclaimed His salvation and declared His glory and His wonders to the whole world. God deserves worship from the entire earth because He is the Creator who made the heavens, not like the gods and idols of the pagans. God’s greatness and power give Him a regal, royal bearing. He is marked by strength and beauty.
Prayer: Our Glorious Creator and Saviour, you are not a local deity but the God of all the creation. We have new mercies from you to celebrate and thus must have/sing new songs. The good news of our redemption is sweet from day to day. We should never stop proclaiming the gospel of your salvation. May we let Jesus Christ become King of our heart and never hesitate in singing unto Him a new song, showing forth in public His salvation and declaring His glory. Amen.
