God is great and the Bible invites us to thank God for His greatness.
Psalm 95:2-3 Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 3 For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.
Psalm 145:1-3 “I will exalt you my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Everyday [no exceptions] I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.” [no one can understand]
Psalm 139:1-6 “O Lord, you have searched me and know me. You know when I sit and when I rise, you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely O Lord. You hem me in- behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful [incomprehensible] for me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
· Thank God for His greatness is incomprehensible.
· Incomprehensible: Beyond our ability to fully understand.
· How many of you spend a lot of time trying to figure things out?
Psalm 115:3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
· Turn- The MIND of God will always be greater than the Mind of Me and that’s OK.
Malachi 3:6 “I the LORD do not change.”
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
· Thank God for His greatness is incorruptible.
Psalm 30:4 (NKJV) Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
Revelation 4:8 Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
· One of the ways that God is holy is that He is separate from sin.
· Jesus is a friend of sinners
John 20:24-28 Now Thomas one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” 26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Ephesians 2:6-7 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
· Thank God for His greatness is incomparable.
Romans 3:23-24 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
Matthew 26:26-27 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks, and broke it, and gave it to His disciples saying, “Take and eat this is my body.” 27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks, and offered it to them, saying, “Drink this is my blood shed for you for the forgiveness of sins.”
