Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

PSALM 96:3,

The word glory means “notable achievement or great beauty.”  We have a tendency to talk about topics that excite us the most: our families, our kids, our careers, our sports team, etc. The beautiful areas in our lives attract the most attention.

Consider the beauty of what God has done for us. His Son brought us salvation, a relationship with God, a renewed purpose, a forgiven past, and a future home. Those notable and beautiful things should excite us and attract attention throughout the day.

But the truth is—God want everyone to experience the beautiful freedom that comes from having a relationship with Him.  This should encourage us to declare God’s Glory among the nations—and His marvelous deeds among the people so that they can possess the excitement that comes with fully understanding His glory in our lives.
