This week we’re using the Message paraphrase of Psalm 8 as the basis of our notes. A different translation can help bring new light to a familiar passage!

Psalm 8:1 MSG
God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name.

A simple yet searching first verse. Our God should indeed be a household name, the subject of our discussions as we go about our daily lives. If he is as brilliant as we believe him to be, how could it be any different! And yet, sometimes do we relegate him to a ‘church-hold’ name, safe and tucked away…

Lord, help me to make you the subject of my thoughts and discussion today.
