A new song to sing

Who can measure the greatness of an unfathomable God? One who is Lord of all creation…and a three-person deity? Is there anything greater? That as a baby, Christ came into the world, born of a woman, while still the exact replication of our spiritual God, the father, leaves one flummoxed. This God-person stepped from eternity into time and space for the purpose of redeeming man from the wickedness of our own disobedience. It defies logic. How do we worship such a glorious thing? What song can do our reverence justice?

When Jesus walked the earth, he came as a peaceful. loving servant. He healed the sick and caused the blind to see. The miracles he performed didn’t go unheralded, but the essence of who he was became an anathema to man, and so he was hung to die. Yet the greatness of Christ did not let death claim him. He had the victory because he was God.

The magnificence of such a being is so humbling. We sing spiritual songs as How Great Thou Art and He Lives with tears because the magnificence of his presence in our lives is so uplifting, it shatters our emotions. That we could be so loved by him is more than great.

We sing our praises to him on earth and look forward to continuing our song in heaven! As the song goes, When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory!
