“How Great Thou Art!”

For the Jewish people, Moses was great. As far as they were concerned, Moses was superior to everyone… except God. But in the book of Hebrews, the writer of Hebrews encourages them to “consider Christ.”
In the first two chapters of Hebrews the writer focuses on the superiority of Jesus. The reason he did was because Moses was so special to these people. Moses was the one whom God had spoken to face to face. He was the one whom God had given the Ten Commandments. To the Jew, Moses and the law were synonymous. But the writer of Hebrews leads them to understand that although Moses was great, Jesus was greater.
In Psalm 104:1, the Psalmist says, “O Lord my God, how great You are!” When I read those words, I think of the old hymn, “How Great Thou Art.”
“O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder.
Consider all, the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars. I hear the roaring thunder.
Thy power throughout, the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul! My Savior God to Thee!
How great thou art! How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul. My Savior God to Thee.
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
