Listening to a song last night
that very few people have heard because it was by a little tiny local band that doesn’t exist anymore.
but I was listening to the words and its a Christian song, but it is missing something.
In some strange way the lyrics twist the salvation story into being about us. That everything Christ did was completely for us. And that’s true to a point, but Christ’s ultimate purpose in saving us was to glorify God.
I think that’s a hard thing for us to understand and I don’t think its comfortable for us to think of.
It means that we are gonna have to go through horrible things and that the ultimate outcome of it is that God is glorified.
but we can’t forget how carefully He watches us and defends us. He is glorified because of His character. He is glorified because He deserves to be praised and lifted high.
Yeah, life can be painful, but our God is a God of comfort. And the comfort given to us can then be used to comfort another and in this we are comforted, they are comforted and He is glorified.
