In Psalm 8, David exalts God, who has set His glory above the heavens. He also marvels at the honor and glory given by God to man, who deserves none. In his sermon from Psalm 8, Dr. Andrew White endeavors to help the church understand the God-given place of man: below God and over creation. We would be wise to never elevate ourselves above our rightful place nor to denigrate ourselves as less important than the rest of creation. Finally, we see that Jesus is the ultimate fulfillment of all that it means to be truly human and truly divine.
I. God is Majestic Over All Creation (vv. 1–3)
II. God is Merciful Toward Mankind (vv. 4–9)
