There is no better way to praise God than in the Psalms, which are full of the creative Word of God — who was, John says, in the beginning with God, through whom all things were made.
In Psalm 19, all of creation speaks after the Word. The heavens declare God’s glory; the sun in the sky, a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, “rejoices like a champion to run its course.” God’s law, placed in our minds and hearts, revives our soul, teaches wisdom, and inspires imitation. As the psalm ends: “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and redeemer.”
All communicators, writers, teachers — and preachers, parents, children, pilgrims: we all should keep this Word before us. This word of God is our reason for speaking, and he makes it possible. As incarnate, this word teaches us to speak with power and humility. He is our beginning, end, and way.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us — a living word for a living Church. Thanks be to God!
