Psalm 8 - God the Creator, Christ the Saviour


In this Psalm, we find three things, each explained in this message:

- Praise to God for the glory of his creation
- Wonder at the blessing and authority given to man
- And yet, there is an inbuilt incompleteness; man's destiny has not yet been achieved; the Psalm points forward to this

Psalm 8:1-9

1O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: 7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! (KJV)
