Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them.
When I hear UBC students talking with passion about their studies I get excited. They are delighting in the works of the Lord!
When I hear followers of Jesus talking with passion about their study of God’s Word and the Gospel, I get really excited.They are delighting in the redemptive works of the Lord! The redemptive works are the Lord are on the song-writer’s mind in Psalm 111.
“He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name! 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever!” (Psalm 111:9-10)
When you delight in God and in His restoring work through Jesus Christ, you can become a participant in His redemptive work through your studies and ultimately in your career. Your study and your work has meaning. Do it with Jesus.
