Tell the Nations!

Passage: Psalm 96, Matthew 28:18-20
Service Type:

Psalm 96:1 Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth! [2] Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. [3] Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
[4] For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods.
[5] For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the LORD made the heavens. [6] Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
[7] Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! [8] Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts!
[9] Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!
[10] Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns! Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.”
[11] Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
[12] let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
[13] before the LORD, for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness, and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. [19] Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, [20] teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

The first coming of Jesus should make us anxious for his final coming! As we await the Lord’s final advent, let’s say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

• God’s plan for the world
• Our call to proclaim his Lordship and Love

Joy to the World (v4)
He rules the world with truth and grace
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness
and wonders of his love.
