Praising the Lord Jesus Christ for His Faithfulness

Psalm 103 is solely written for worship. It is pure unadulterated praise from start to finish. The capstone verse is “the LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy” (v. 8). David’s focus is riveted on one person—the LORD, the great I Am. So, why should we praise God today, especially witnessing all of the effects of a fallen creation? The answer is found in the name of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Interestingly, the very names of God included in the Bible identify the range of God’s magnanimous character. In fact, the covenant name LORD is related to the verb “to be” and speaks of God’s self-existence. In the New Testament, the religious leaders of Jesus’ day questioned Him concerning His identity. Jesus answered their unbelieving queries by saying, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). He existed before eternity as the LORD, the great I Am.

There is now a greater title reserved for our Lord Jesus Christ. “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9–11).

As we begin 2024, the Institute for Creation Research gives thanks to our faithful Creator. We seek to glorify Jesus Christ by emphasizing the credit He is due as Creator and Savior. His goodness is displayed to all who seek after Him. We also see His faithfulness as the Lord Jesus Christ continues to bless ICR’s research through faithful partners like you. Your support is vital to everything we do, and we use your gifts of love to feed souls with the truth of biblical creation.

This year, we’re continuing to host Meet and Greets across the United States. I look forward to interacting with longtime supporters and new partners interested in this critical biblical creation ministry. What a blessing it is for me to personally thank all of you for your support as well as get to know you and share behind-the-scenes information on ICR’s vision for the future. I invite you to join me when I come to your area.1

May I ask you to please remember ICR in your prayers and financial giving? Our priority in researching continuous environmental tracking is already bearing fruit. Your prayers and gifts are a special blessing to us, ensuring this exciting research initiative blooms into the full glory that is rightly due our Creator (Revelation 4:11).
