Just A Thought…

Sing to the LORD a new song;  sing to the LORD all the earth.

Psalm 96:1


We briefly looked at this Psalm at our prayer meeting recently I was reminded of these beautiful words again.

“A new song…” and as I reflected on a number of connecting themes I was reminded again of the new songs we find in Luke’s account of the birth and the coming of The Messiah. The first two chapters contain the songs of the angels, of Elizabeth, of Mary, of Zacharias, of Simeon. 

Songs! Songs! Songs! – they are the most perfect garments of praise

Song and poetry is surely the highest form of expression and praise. The songs recorded in Luke were most certainly not the utterance of some ordinary occurrence rather are they the joyful outburst of the most extraordinary event. Each new age finds a new song. New beginnings are marked by new forms of song.

The psalmist in psalm 96 says, “Bring an offering and come before Him. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Sing to the LORD a new song.” Each day is a new day, a new beginning, and a new revelation.

I am so glad Luke opened his account of the gospel by recording these new songs. Praise that marked the new revelation of Himself…a new era for the world…a new day had dawned!  It was indeed peace on earth and goodwill to all people!

May this year be a great year of blessing in your life.
