“Words of Challenge and Hope”

“Words of Challenge and Hope” – Rev. Benjamin Wines

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark,

To silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,

The moon and the stars that you have established;

What are human beings that you are mindful of them,

Mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower than the angels,

And crowned them with glory and honor.

You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;

You have put all things under their feet,

All sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,

Whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! – from Psalm 8

Questions for Further Reflection:
In this passage, Jesus gives the Great Commission to his disciples—even those that doubt what they’re seeing.

  • Why is that important?
  • How does that fact challenge your understanding of Jesus?
  • How can it give you hope?
