Sing to the Lord, all the world Worship the Lord with joy; come before Him with happy songs Never forget that the Lord is God. He made us and we belong to Him; we are His people, we are His flock. Enter the temple gates with thanksgiving; go into its courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise Him. Teach me your ways, O Lord; make them known to me. Teach me to live according to your truth and righteousness, for you are my God, who saves me. I always trust in you. Even if a whole army surrounds me, I will not be afraid; even if enemies attack me, I will still trust God. The Lord will destroy death forever. He will wipe away the tears from everyone's eyes and take away disgrace we His children have suffered throughout the world. I have a message, a belief, and a story to share with the world. I have put my heart and soul into my endeavor in order to encourage others. I am not a preacher or a prophet, but this is a voice in the desert proclaiming the day of the Lord is at hand, the day of the judgment and salvation. We have been created superior to all other creatures by God, more superior even than angels. Angels were created to serve God, but man was created with a special responsibility to God and a responsibility to all other creatures. We were given the ability to participate in life by creating new life ourselves, something the angels were not. We were not created to worship God but to obey Him, for God has millions of angels to worship Him. If we fail in our responsibility to God by failing to keep His commandments, He will forgive us, but if we fail in our responsibility to one another or to the other creatures in God's creation, what then must we do? We will need to askthem to forgive us, before we turn to God. We must stop judging unjustly; we must no longer be partial to the wicked. We must defend the rights of the poor and the orphans; we must be fair to the needy and the helpless. God is neither desperate nor does He benefit or lose because of our actions. If we do what is good and walk in the right, we bring good unto ourselves. God will be pleased with good actions and bless us. God is interested in having a good relationship with us; this is the true religion-knowing what God wants and knowing that we are doing what pleases Him. It is true that for us, our life is like grass. We grow and flourish like a wildflower; then the wind blows on it, and it is gone-no one sees it again. But for those who honour the Lord, His love lasts forever, and His goodness endures for all generations of those who are true to His covenant and who faithfully obey His commands. The Lord placed His throne in heaven; He is king over all. Praise the Lord, you strong and mighty angels, who obey His commands, who listen to what He says. Praise the Lord, all you heavenly powers, you servants of His, who do His will Praise the Lord, all His creatures in all the places He rules. Praise the Lord, my soul.
