Our scripture this morning is Psalms 68:19-20.
Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Our God is a God who saves! The Sovereign Lord rescues us from death.
This psalm expresses our joy and gratitude that God is willing to act on our behalf. Even in our fallen state, the One who created us does not abandon us. We hear the blessing that “our God is a God who saves” and we rejoice in our redemption.
God could have turned His back on us, as we have Him, but His love will not let us go. We are told that God rescues us from death and He has a place for us with Him. These promises are given to all who will accept the new life He sent in Jesus Christ.
We must be ready to serve Him by caring for the creation we have been given. God expects us to love one another as part of His family. His saving grace is offered to us and He calls us to share it with all the world.
Gracious God, we are grateful for the love You send, and we want to go in Your name to bless others. Strengthen us in faith and send us to use the gifts You give for the good of Your kingdom. Amen.
