Podcast #244: “So Will I (100 Billion X)” by Hillsong United

Comparing Our Worship With All of Creation in Genesis 1 and Psalm 148

The Psalmist readily acknowledges that all of creation praises God. Humans are mentioned in just two verses that call on God’s heavenly and earthly creation to worship Him in Psalm 148. Hillsong United sings of this in their song “So Will I” when they lyrically recognize that our praise is not unique to humankind.

Join me as we consider the ramifications of our worship.

On this week’s episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Slow down
    • Meditate on Scripture
  • How the first verse of the song “So Will I” comes straight from Genesis 1:1-5
  • How we approach the Bible the way we approach a blog article or FB post…we skim
  • Learning something insightful requires effort
  • Picturing creation coming into existence and pondering its vastness
  • Christ is the one who continues to hold all of creation together – Colossians 1:16
  • The perfect Psalm to reflect this week’s song – Psalm 148
  • The sun and moon and shining stars praise God by doing what they were created to do – Genesis 1:14-19
  • We err when we equate worship with lyrics, music, and a band
  • Just like all of creation we worship when we do what we were created to do – Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 2:15

This Week’s Challenge

Go to Genesis 1 and read the creation account. Meditate on and imagine the vastness of what the words are describing. Pay special attention to each aspect of creation to see what God states as its purpose. Hop over to Psalm 148 to see all of creation worshiping God. Consider that each part of creation worships God by doing what they were created to do. How will these truths impact your work as worship?
