Sing to the LORD a new song; Sing to the LORD, all the earth.Psalm 96:1(NASB)
Angels sing their holy song to God while the heavens rejoice; the earth is joyful; trees clap their hands and the very stones proclaim of the glory to God for He is full of grace and truth; His splendour and majesty are ever before Him and His strength and beauty is in His holy temple. The faithfulness of our God stretches from one generation to another.
No wonder we are called by the psalmist to sing unto the Lord a new song, a glorious song, a wonderful song that proclaims His goodness to us and to all men. No surprise that we are exhorted to worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness for even the trees of the forest sing for joy and clap their hands together because the Lord is coming to judge the world in His righteousness and His people in His faithfulness.
The church is His body and we are now the holy temple of our faithful Lord for we were created in Christ, as a new creation, sanctified as His peculiar people, set apart as His representatives on earth – and we have been given a glorious song of grace to sing of the One that shows forth the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness towards us, in Christ Jesus.
Let us join together and sing unto the LORD a new song of praise and thanksgiving and proclaim to the earth His wonderful salvation. Let us tell abroad the wonder of His name for our Jesus is greatly to be praised for all that He has done.
Loving Father I lift up my voice in praise and thanksgiving for the wonder that You have done in my life. I pray that my life in thought, word and deed may be a song of praise to You, for the goodness of Your grace, for You alone are worthy, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
