Declare God's Glory Among the Nations: A Missionary psalm which 
calls believers to proclaim God's salvation among the nations. 
[Andrews SB] 

In Ps. 96 the psalmist calls on all the nations of the earth to 
acknowledge the universal sovereignty of Jehovah. It has been called A 
Missionary Hymn for All Ages. The psalm praises Jehovah as Creator and 
Wonder-Worker of old (vv. 1-6), as Ruler of the world at present (vv. 7-9), 
and as redeeming Judge at the restitution of all things (vv. 10-13). 
[SDA Bible Commentary] 


   Every day we cross paths with someone who needs to hear the 
good news that the Lord saves. We can never fully plumb the depths of 
God's character and attributes, but with every day and every 
experience we can discover new facets about God, new songs to sing to him. 
To "publish" means to share and that refers not only to writing 
books and delivering sermons about God but also to sharing what the 
Lord has done in our own lives so that others might be drawn to him. 
Each of us can purpose to do that. The most powerful evangelism 
doesn't take place within the four walls of a church building. It occurs 
as we share with others in our neighborhood and workplace the good 
news of what God has done for us individually and for the whole world 
in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Ask God to 
bring people across your path today who need to hear the good news 
that God saves and that he loves them. And then ask him for the 
compassion and courage to share the reason for your hope and to pray for 
those people.  
   LORD, I want to sing a new song to you and bless your name. I 
want to tell everyone about the amazing things you do. Help me to 
start today, right where I am, to proclaim the good news of salvation 
and to publish your glorious deeds everywhere I go. Give me the 
words to share from your heart with those I will meet. [Praying 
Through The Bible By Fuller re vv. 1-3] 

   The great and glorious work committed to us in acting a part 
in the plan of salvation is wonderfully high and exalted. We cannot 
weigh its merits. We are to walk by faith; and as we strive to 
appreciate the possibilities, and realize the immensity of the plan of 
salvation, it is our privilege to pray with the apostle Paul that we may be 
able to "comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, 
and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth 
knowledge" (Eph. 3:18). Lift Him up, the Man of Calvary. Let the mind dwell 
upon the beauties of His character until by beholding you become 
changed into the same image. A life of prayer and faith will lead us to 
speak of His praise and tell of His power. . . .  
   Genuine conversion will unite our hearts in faith and love. 
It will teach us to hold fast our confidence in Him who is our only 
hope. By conversion we join our weakness to God's strength, our 
ignorance to His wisdom, our unworthiness to His merits, our poverty to 
His boundless riches, our helplessness to His enduring might.  
   We must search the Word of God, making it a part of 
ourselves. A spirit of humility, the spirit of Christ, will help us to know 
Him who has called us to glory and virtue.  
   If we brought the truth into the daily life as we should we 
would advance higher and still higher, gaining a clearer and still 
clearer understanding of the revelation of God. We would lift Him up in 
songs of praise. Through the psalmist Christ declared, "In the midst 
of the congregation will I praise thee" (Ps. 22:22). His voice was 
the keynote of the universe. His unconfined power, His unsearchable 
understanding, His wonderful sacrifice for the human race, help us to 
comprehend the love of God. We need individually to have Christ abiding in 
the soul. We need to open our minds and hearts to the indwelling of 
the Spirit of truth. We need to appreciate our privileges as the 
possessors of sacred, elevating truth. Think of what this means to us-- 
heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ! {HP 248}
