The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. 2001 (Ps 104:35). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

ImageIn all this Psalm, the greatness, majesty and power of God is displayed (in Creation) not the invisible heaven which we cannot see. God does what he does so that we can SEE his invisible attributes, and more importantly his supremacy, and we can choose to obey as ALL of creation obeys.

However, no other creation has the ability like we do to see and understand Gods beauty and the fact that we are his crowning creation.

Will I choose today to sing praises to God while I have being? Will my meditation be pleasing to God? Will I rejoice in the LORD?

Because God goes to such great lengths to demonstrate his Love to us, God is just in that he hates sinners! That is why Jesus died so that we might be reconciled to Him, enemies (hated) no more. God’s wrath poured out on Jesus is sufficient to cover the sins of those who find forgiveness in Christ. The day is coming when those who stand outside of Jesus’ righteousness, the wicked, will be consumed. And God’s hatred of sin, and those who embrace it will be punished for all eternity.

Without a doubt God hates sinners–in our sin we are enemies of God. In Christ we are adopted sons and daughters, enemies no more. Why would we not tell our family, our friends, even our enemies that they need Jesus? God forgive me when I in my sin, neglect the opportunity to tell someone the good news.
