I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. – Psalm 57:9-10


Do you have a “life-song?”

I think King David had a lot of songs in his heart, but the verses above seem to bring them all together. They express His understanding of God’s faithful love and the need for that love to be expressed before all peoples (nations, tribes, and languages).

I like it. It expresses the aim of my life and, frankly, the aim of all true missionaries. In fact, if this is your “life-song,” then you are a missionary, too. You see, missionaries love God, love His truth, do not let cultural differences hinder them, and possess a compulsive desire to share Christ with every people group on earth. I have been a missionary a long time … and some of that time was even spent overseas.

Do missionaries live overseas? Of course they do, but they live here, as well (wherever “here” is for you). Are you a missionary? It just depends on your “life-song.”

Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music. – Ronald Reagan
