What grace the Lord gives to His people as we sing to one another from hearts filled with thankfulness! The great exhortation of Colossians 3:16 continues to stir my heart and mind:
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
One song, among many, that has recently been gripping me is entitled To the Cross I Cling. You can find the song and listen to a short portion of it on the album God of Victory. The song is based on a prayer from The Valley of Vision called The Broken Heart, and the key line proclaims:
“All things in me call for my rejection, all things in You plead my acceptance.”
Beloved, this is the hope and wonder of the Gospel in 15 short words!! May your soul be strengthened by faith in the glories of Christ and the power of the cross!
