Why do we sing? "For He has done Marvelous things! ... His holy arm has worked salvation!" He didn't just work it, He has made it known, in the sight of all! So we, like the Israelites, "Break forth into joyous song!" The sea and all that is in it, the rivers clap, the hills sing, All creation praises His name! Shouldn't we? Yes!
I find it interesting that the writer follows all of this urging to break forth in worship with, "for", or "because". Do this before the Lord, because He comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity." It sure sounds like the Lord really wants us to sing His praises, in fact, He commands it! This beautiful Psalm has even placed our worship into the realm of considerations that determine the judgment we receive from God! That ought to get us thinking about what we are doing when we lift our voices to Him, or what we are doing when we don't.
If we genuinely believe that Jesus Christ is who He says He is, and we love Him as such, we won't be able to resist joyous song & praise! So let's do it church!
Eager to worship with you,
