Message from Dr. Phil Adams

1. I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
2. Every day I will bless you
and praise your name forever and ever.
3. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable.
4. One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
5. On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
6. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
7. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
8. The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

Psalm 145: 1-8
English Standard Version

What a blessing it is to be involved in Kingdom work here at Phoenix Christian! Notice the big thoughts David expresses when he thinks of his God and Creator. One of our tasks at Phoenix Christian is the help our students think big thoughts about our God. I have the pleasure to interact with students from kindergarten through seniors. The maturity range is vast, yet there are common goals for each student.

• God is our King
• Our duty, our privilege is to extol Him, or give Him honor
• God is great
• God is glorious
• The Lord is at the same time gracious (giving us what we don’t deserve) and merciful (withholding what we do deserve).

Finally, this passage speaks clearly of the need for each generation to pass along its experiences with God to the next generation. That is our privilege here at Phoenix Christian.

May God bless you and keep you this week.
