Psalm 96

THE MISSIONARY PSALM

 

CALL TO MISSIONS - Vss. 1-3

The glory and wonders of Christ need to be proclaimed to the "heathen". Matthew 28:19-20

Don't think of heathen people as people who live in a third world setting.

Think of heathen people as anyone in need of Christ.

 

REASONS FOR MISSIONS - Vss. 4-6

1.     The Lord is great and should be greatly praised. Vs. 4

2.     He needs to be feared above all Gods. He is feared when Jesus is claimed as Savior. Vs. 4

3.     The Lord is the only true God, who also made the Heavens. Vs. 5

4.     The Lord is preeminent. Vs. 6

 

MESSAGE OF MISSIONS - Vss. 7-10

To give the Lord the glory due his name means to accept His way of salvation. Acts 4:12

To worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness also requires us to trust Christ as Savior. 1 Peter 2:9-10

The heathen must realize that it is God who reigns. Revelation 1:8

He shall judge righteously. John 3:18, Revelation 20:11-15, 2 Corinthians 5:10

 

END OF MISSIONS - Vss. 11-13

The Lord will return to judge in righteousness.

Psalm 96:1-2

MY SONG FOR JESUS

 

Following the advice of the Psalmist, as I worship the Lord Jesus my song to Him should be:

 

A FRESH SONG - New - I should be so growing in Christ that I have new reasons to praise Him every day.

 

A FULL SONG - Praising the Lord with my whole heart

 

A FREQUENT SONG - Continually blessing His name

 

A FAITHFUL SONG - Proclaiming His salvation
