Let them praise your great and awesome name. Holy is he! Mighty King, lover of justice, you have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. Extol the Lord our God; worship at his footstool. Holy is he!

I recall two separate conversations with international students who were studying in America. I asked them both what were their first impressions about our country. One said, "Americans like to say that everything is AWESOME!" Another said, after viewing small appliances on kitchen counter tops, "You have so many motors to serve you!" We are, in fact, obsessed with everything awesome. We do surround ourselves with motorized minions to do our bidding. It is hard to imagine that the presence, the purposes and the greatness of God could get a word in edgewise, but generation after generation, God does make himself known. When we see justice, equity, righteousness, we see the truly awesome God who comes as a servant to all.

Holy are you, O Lord, our God. Amen.
