We must tell others about our mighty God - Jim Bell

Psalm 145 is a psalm of praise to our great God. Verse one, and following, tell us: “I will exalt you, my God and King; I will praise your name forever and ever. Every day I will praise You and extol Your Holy Name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.”

Believer’s can tell about God because of His Grace, rule, help and love; because of His healing power, and certainly, His saving power.

All people of our world do not believe He is the creator and ruler over His creation. They do not believe He is owner of all, and do not feel He should be praised for all His mighty deeds.

As we read Psalm 145 and praise our God today, we should know and feel that He wants us to tell others about Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, of Jesus’ birth, life, and His death on the cross, and certainly of His glorious resurrection –– and of how they might be saved as a result.

We must tell of His Grace. Verses 8 and 9 say: “The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made.”

Grace can be understood as “God’s riches at Christ’s expense,” because Jesus made it all possible for us to be forgiven of our sins and to be heirs of all He has in store for those who love Him and are obedient to Him. This Grace is expressed magnificently in John 3:16. Praise God! He is magnificent!

I believe the best way to tell others of God’s grace is to learn the “Faith Outline” so well that we can share it with one or more lost sinners. I love to be instrumental in seeing lost people come to Christ for several reasons: 1.) One honors God and Jesus Christ by believing in, and accepting, Jesus Christ as personal savior. 2.) I’m convinced that Christ is the answer to all of man’s problems. 3.) I do not want anyone to go to Hell!

We must tell of His kingdom: Verses 11—13 say: “They will tell of the glory of your Kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.”

Jesus spoke about the kingdom of God in Mark 1:15. “The kingdom of God is near, Repent and believe the good news.” We must tell others the “Good News” of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ. This is the “door” through which man must enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said; “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.”John 14:6.

We must tell of His help. Verses 14-16. Please read these for yourself. This is your testimony –– your personal experience with Almighty God. I believe most people want to hear how God has blessed us, healed us and how He answers our prayers.

We must tell of His love. Verses 17—20 say: “The Lord is righteous in all His ways and loving toward all He has made. The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth, He fulfills the desires of all those who fear Him. He hears their cry and saves them. The Lord watches over all who love Him.”

If you do not believe in Jesus Christ at this time, please take this article seriously and call on the Lord to save you.

I pray you will.
