Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared above all gods.
– Psalm 96:3–4
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
– Romans 15:5–7
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
– 1 Peter 2:9–10
And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
– Ephesians 2:17–22
After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
– Revelation 7:9–10

Seven truths of God’s plan:
What is your favorite verse of Scripture and why? One of my favorites is 1 Corinthians 15:58 because it encourages me to serve the Lord fully even when it is hard. Matthew 6:33’s encouragement to seek God and His righteousness, and to trust in His provision, keeps me focused on the Lord, just as Hebrews 12:2 does. By the way, I hope you’re going to look up all these great verses!
In different seasons of life, I find myself drawn to Scripture that reveals the character of our Heavenly Father, like Psalm 103:8 which speaks of His compassion, grace, and love. Taking in the promises of God, meditating on His character, and learning to delight in His commandments all make us more like Jesus, our Savior. If you’re inconsistent in your reading of God’s Word, please stop depriving yourself of this great treasure. To know God is to delight in Him, and He invites you to do just that.
For His glory,
