Psalm 96 Bible Study
1. Always give God the glory
God is our creator. We should always give God the glory for all the successes we have. God is the source of all things. He is the one who give us breath, wisdom, wealth and etc. We must thank God in all circumstances. In 1 Corinthians 10:31, whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. In Colossians 3:17, and whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. In 1 Peter 4:11, if any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
