I gave a pretty broad title. The discussion of “why God saves” is far greater than this post. My intent is not to expound on that topic, but to share a little of what He showed me in my study of His word this morning. Please feel free to speak more broadly about that in the comments or your own blog!
I suspect that most of my coming posts will be fruit of my journeying through the Psalms. This morning it is the 9th psalm I have been digging into. There is so much about God and His relationship to His people and the nations. There is much about His righteous judgment. But it was the verses above that caught my attention this morning! God lifts us up from the gates of death. Why? So we may tell of all His praises! I love to spend time praising God, but I must confess that too often those praises are limited to my personal times in prayer, music, study, listening to sermons, etc. And more than that, often my praises are limited to what I see now. I forget to go back and “remember all His benefits.” (Psalm 103) But He redeemed me to tell (that implies speaking to others!!!) of all (not just the ones I understand or can see) His praises!
