How Great Is Our God

Psalm 96
Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD all the earth. 
Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among the peoples. 
For great is the LORD and most worth of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. 
For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the LORD, O families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.
Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns." The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved. He will judge the peoples with equity.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
They will sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his truth.

Are you longing for heaven? Are you ready to worship our great God with peoples from around this planet? 

Revelation 7:9-10
After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb... And they cried out in a loud voice: "Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb."


Watch this and worship. Watch this and taste, in the smallest of ways, what passionate worship to our great God will involve when a multitude of colors and languages praise him together in eternity.

(Now that you've watched and worshiped, wipe your tears and go back and watch it again, but this time for fun. Pause it at 2:21 and at 4:47. See anyone you know in the crowd?)
