Psalm 63:3 (NIV) 3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
What a great way to start a week? A wonderful reminder of just how great the love is that the Lord has for us! Think about the love the Lord has shown you throughout your walk… the faithfulness, the grace, the mercy, is it not better than anything else we experience in life? I think so! If that is how we truly feel, our lips should glorify Him! Better Than Anything Else? We are reminded of the love God has for us, even while we were mired in a sinful state in Romans 5:8... (8) But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us… Christ died for us, if that does not send shivers down your spine, it certainly should! The Lord Jesus took on the sin that belonged to us so that we could live eternally with Him. Is that better than anything else you will ever experience in life? Without a doubt! We can look at the world and everything in it and be envious. We can all have that wandering eye that seeks out the things others have, but 1 John 2:17 offers a timely reminder… (17) And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever… Is God’s love better than that car that will eventually die? Absolutely! Is God’s love better than that fancy house that will eventually break down? Yup! Is God’s love better than the dollar that continually fluctuates in worth? Definitely! At the end of the day, God’s love is better than anything we will ever experience and there is nothing close! My Lips Will Glorify You If we truly understand just how great the love is that He has for us, our lips should be glorifying Him! We should be offering Him praise, we should be spreading His Gospel, we should be living lives of continual thankfulness. We should be living lives completely sold out for Him, because He lived a life completely sold out for us! Closing Thoughts: Because His love is better than life, we should be glorifying the Lord with our lips, our actions, and our love. Step into a relationship with Him that leads to a life completely sold out for Him… He, after all, gave everything up for us! John 15:13 (NKJV) 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
