Today is a day of Song and Sonship

Are you in Christ?

Have you confessed with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and do you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead? Then you are and will be saved.

8But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:8-10, King James Version)

Then, through Christ, by the faith that God has given to you, you have two things that are very special: Righteousness and Salvation. They are both gifts from God that only He, through His Son, could give to you.

So, what do you do when given so special a gift? What you do is say 'Thank You' by Loving and Worshiping Him and giving all of your Devotion to Him. Then at some time in the future do something nice for Him.

Like singing a song to Him (In person):

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 5:9-15, King James Version)

Gentle reader, now is the time to learn this song. You would not want to be the only one not singing when the time comes. It will be okay if you can't carry a tune in a bucket so long as you know the words and they come from the heart.

Trust me, I will be singing loud enough to drown all of you out anyway.

Amen! And I'm so relieved you'll be singing loud enough for me too! I have no voice, so I'll need all the help I can get...although I have it on good report that Papa understands Sign Language which is how I sing. Not very loud, but plenty of heart put into it! Great post Mr. Willis. Shalom.
