Psalm 98–Rivers Clap Their Hands

The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations. He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psalm 98:2-3)

God the evangelist. There’s a phrase that we don’t often hear on Sunday mornings. The idea that God who mercifully extends His grace—of which He is the source—also trumpets that message to the world somehow seems to escape us. We take the burden and responsibility for evangelism onto our own shoulders, but fail to look back at the exemplar for the proper way of performing the task.

God the Father announced His love through His chosen people. As His people put their depravity on display over and over, the message was confused. The Suffering Servant would leave no doubt. Christ made salvation known for all the generations that would follow. Our evangelism requires nothing but to display Christ to the world.

Marana Tha!
