Getting Mouthy with God
By Rev. Dr. Scott Seidler, Senior Pastor
May the words and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.—Psalm 19:14
What cannot be missed on a perfectly starry night is the awesomeness which is a perfectly starry night. Unaffected by light pollution from planet earth, taking in the heavens takes many, Christian or not, to a place where hearts wonder about eternal things. “The heavens declare the glory of God.” This first verse of Psalm 19 is matched and mirrored by the last verse. “May the words of my mouth…”
Light pollution obscures what the heavens tell us, how the stars speak. Worse, the pollution of our hearts, the sin within each of us, obscures our human speech. Thankfully, God speaks a heavenly Word that changes hearts and corrects our speech. Through his death and bodily resurrection Jesus Christ makes our words pleasant—centered on Him who is the very glory of God himself.
