The majesty of God’s glory is seen in the magnitude of God’s grace! So it is that all of God’s eternal, sovereign, adopting, redeeming work in Jesus Christ is “…to the praise of His glorious grace…” (Eph. 1:6)! And so it is that the multitude of heavenly host burst forth with praise at the birth of Jesus:
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:14)
Beloved, the depth and darkness of our sin is far more heinous than we can fathom. But the wealth and wonder of God’s grace in Christ is far more abundant than we can imagine! Dr. Homer Kent said it well:
“The higher one’s conception of God’s holiness and the deeper his sense of human sin, the greater is his discernment of the riches of grace that were necessary to provide such a redemption.” (Homer Kent, Ephesians Commentary, pg. 22-23)
What can we say, but amen, and amen! And what can we do but sing on, knowing that a “worthy walk” (Eph. 4:1) is first and foremost a walk of worship!!
Beholding, singing, walking, and growing with you,
