The Greatness of Our God
February 21, 2016 Speaker: Brent Small
Topic: God Passage: Deuteronomy 32:1–32:7
In this sermon podcast on Deuteronomy 32:1-7, Pastor Brent unfolds 5 “compelling confessions” of the greatness of God that will glorify Him and compel your Christian life.
When was the last time you considered the greatness of God? Charles Spurgeon once said that no man could be thoroughly conscious of God’s presence without being filled with awe. At times, every believer will fall out of awe with God. The result is a diminishing of His glory manifest by His people and a lack of motivation to live for Him.
In Deuteronomy 32, we find the Song of Moses. This song was to be a witness of God and His greatness to the future generations of Israel who would forsake Him in rebellion and idolatry. Moses declares the greatness of God by stacking attribute on top of attribute that concern His greatness. Building this mountain of greatness, Moses then calls the Israelites to ascribe greatness to their God!
However, this song contains powerful truth for all people and the entire creation as it magnifies the greatness of the Creator. For the Christian, we must also take these attributes of God’s greatness and ascribe them to Him. Giving greatness to God means that we confess His greatness to our own heart, to Him in prayer and to others as we seek to glorify Him.
If we do this, God will be glorified and we will be compelled to live for Him. How do these confessions glorify God and compel our Christian life? Pastor Brent seeks to answer that question as he unfolds the confessions of His greatness.
