Catechesis Notes for the Week — The Creation Praises the Lord—This week we begin a slow walk through the Old Testament beginning with Genesis 1 and 2, from the Creation to the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai. The narratives for this week teach us how God the Father created all things by His Word. God orders the creation and has designed all things to be in our service as men and women made in the image and likeness of God. Psalm 148 is a psalm of praise that calls upon the creation to “praise the Lord.” How does the creation praise the Lord? What is praise? Praise gives all honor and glory to God. Psalm 148 extols “the Lord”—the great “I AM” and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as the only true God who is both the Creator of the heavens and the earth and the eternal Savior. The whole of God’s creation praises the Lord when the creation does the very things that God has given it to do and performs its work according to the Lord’s will. Psalm 148 teaches us to understand that the whole of God’s creation is in service to the Lord for His good and gracious purposes. Because of the song of praise throughout God’s creation, young men and maidens, old men and children, and every believer and faithful saint of Christ’s Church praises the name of the Lord and extols His salvation in all the earth.CP221002
