David said these words in Psalm 34:3, “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.”
If you are like me, you have had a magnifying glass in your hand at one time or another. Does a magnifying glass make an object bigger? No, of course not! Yet, it makes the object seem bigger to us. I believe David knew that when we praise God, we are in effect magnifying Him. We are not making God “bigger or better” since He is already perfect, yet we are changing our perception of just how great God is!
Oh, and then there’s the “together” part which seems to speak of exactly why we have established this website. When Cornerstone gathers we always seek to magnify Him. Perhaps this is your introduction to Cornerstone, or you’ve been an active participant from day one, but regardless, it is our desire to welcome you, inform you and invite your participation as we “magnify the Lord” together!
