An inclusive invitation

Praise the Lord, all you nations.
Praise him, all you people of the earth.
For he loves us with unfailing love;
the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Ps. 117

The Old Testament is mostly about God’s relationship with the Hebrews, but this little Psalm tells us  that God loves all of us, the people of the earth He made. Jesus said His followers would be distinguished by their love. In His letters Paul tells Jewish and Gentile believers to unite. It is our love for Him and one another that issues a clear, inclusive invitation to all the people of the earth to praise Him and enjoy His faithful love for them.

Lord, help the world to know we are Your followers by our love.
