After the Super Bowl XLIV game (February 07, 2010) was over, one of the final statements in Super Bowl XLIV, made by the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Quarterback Drew Brees of the winning New Orleans Saints team, was amidst all the celebration a one-liner, wherein he said, “God is Great”. In the movie, “Slumdog millionaire”, the brother of the main character, as he is shot in the end, takes his last dying breath by expressing “God is Great”.
One of the definitions for the word “great” according to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary is “chief or preeminent over others”. God is chief. God is preeminent over all others. What’s more is that the God of the Bible, God in three Persons as Yahweh, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is the One and Only Great God, who does wondrous things. The Psalmist avers this is Psalm 86:10.
Point(s) to ponder:
- Do you/I know this One and Only Great God?
- Is He the chief of all things in your life and mine?
- Is He preeminent over all things in your/my life?
Psalm 86:10 (KJV)
10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
