The Very Rev. Dr. Curtis Crenshaw: “Glory to God and to Man” (Psalm 8)

July 7, 2013

From the Rev. Dr. Curtis Crenshaw of St. Francis REC in Texas (who is also the Dean of Cranmer Theological House), here is an excellent audio sermon on Glory to God and to Man.  This message is based on Psalm 8, and I like what Dean Crenshaw says about our importance to God:

We seem so insignificant in such a vast universe so why does God bother? For one reason, it is because we are made in His image, which gives us great value in His sight. For another reason, He gave us dominion at the beginning in Genesis one and two, and He has not taken that back, nor did we lose it by our sin.
Near the end of his life, Jean-Paul Sartre told Pierre Victor: “I do not feel that I am the product of chance, a speck of dust in the universe, but someone who was expected, prepared, prefigured. In short, a being whom only a Creator could put here; and this idea of a creating hand refers to God.”
There is something about a clear night in the country and seeing so many stars that causes us to wonder why we are important to God.

If you like Psalm 8, which I think truly is a beautiful, wondrous Psalm, you will like this message.  “O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!”
