An Open Invitation

Psalm 66:5
Come and see what God has done:
he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.

An Open Invitation
People of all times and all places have been invited by our Lord, through the Holy Spirit, to come and see all the marvelous things God has done for His children. God’s great works cannot be hidden; they are in fact meant to be shared and seen by all.
Our Psalmist for today’s Scripture verse recounts the salvation of God’s people through the Red Sea. St. Paul tells us that this event foreshadowed our own salvation through the waters of Holy Baptism (1 Corinthians 10:1-2). Just as Moses and the Israelites passed through the waters of the Red Sea and were saved from slavery in Egypt, in the waters of Holy Baptism the old Adam in us is drowned, and we are saved from slavery to sin. This sinful condition was inherited from our first parents, Adam and Eve, and overcome by our Savior Jesus Christ. Through God’s Word, we are invited to come and see His most awesome deed, presented to the world in a Bethlehem manger.
