Celebrating His Coming: Thoughts for the 2nd Week of Advent – Day 7

Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
Let them give glory unto the Lord, and declare his praise in the islands. -Isaiah 42:10-12

For many, calling out sin may not seem like the most important part of Advent and wonder where more of the joy is.

When you discover you are under punishment and then someone takes the punishment for you, you would naturally be quite happy.

When looking at John the Baptizer, it can be easy to forget that he was preacher of righteousness . . . which includes praising God!

Let this be a reminder to us that, yes, we are to call out sin where we see it, and, yes, we are to show people who Christ is and what He has done for us, but we should also show the world the joy that comes in being the redeemed of the Lord.

We sing a new song, a song of our salvation and gratitude to our Savior, and we should sing them for the world to hear and learn. They can help to point to Jesus while teaching the faithful to worship with all of our being.

Heavenly Father, give us a new song, and teach us to share it with the world.
