Sing to the Lord

Daily Reading: Revelation 14-15


Scripture Focus: And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! (Revelation 15.3)


Devotional Thought: Retirement was bittersweet. Lana and I left behind a wonderful church family - bitter - but we moved to John's Island, SC - sweet. We love the ocean. It communicates a sense of God's glory to us. Though we don't sing on the beach, we feel like it!


According to Revelation 15, the multitude of worshipers in heaven will find themselves on the shore of "a sea of glass mingled with fire" (v. 2). "With harps of God in their hands," they will sing...

· The song of Moses, the servant of God. This is the song of deliverance. After the children of Israel were delivered from Egyptian slavery, Moses wrote a song (Exodus 15). He praised God for bringing them safely out of Egypt and through the Red Sea. In heaven, we will be able to look back at the troubles and obstacles of life, and see how God delivered us. We will sing of his great salvation!

· The song of the Lamb, the Son of God. This is the song of redemption. The Bible says that we have been redeemed from the curse of sin. The price of redemption? The blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God! So, in heaven we will sing a new song to the Lamb: "Worthy are you ... for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation" (Revelation 5).


Lana and I can't wait to sing in that choir with our friends and former choir members, standing side-by-side, praising our Lord together!


Prayer: "We praise thee, O God, for the Son of thy love, for Jesus who died and is now gone above. Hallelujah! Thine the glory! Hallelujah! Amen! Hallelujah! Thine the glory! Revive us again."


Psalm of the Day: Psalm 109.1-5

1 Be not silent, O God of my praise!

2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me,

speaking against me with lying tongues.

3 They encircle me with words of hate,

and attack me without cause.

4 In return for my love they accuse me,

but I give myself to prayer.

5 So they reward me evil for good,

and hatred for my love.
