His Wonderful Gifts Proclaimed!

Faith Baptist Church put on their Christmas Cantata today and I am still humming the music from it. We sang songs like “Only Jesus”, “Then Love Came Down”,  and “Bow The Knee”, songs that brought forth feelings of adoration to our God for His gifts to us. Those gifts range from life in general to life eternal, and life lived in between! ( For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:16&17)

Though man was, by nature, sinful and unfit for Heaven or for God’s fellowship, God sent forth his son to live and to die. Jesus shed his blood on the cross, making the only sacrifice that could wash our sin. The song “Then Love Came Down” proclaims “Then love came down wrapped up in a baby’s birth!”  and also “When sin did abound, then love came down”! Oh, the wonder of it all!

The song “Only Jesus” asks who can wash my sin away, and who can give me victory every day, and who can lead me all the way? The answer sounds forth, “…only Jesus”!

“Bow The Knee”  declares, “Bow the knee, bow the knee! He is King of all the ages, bow the knee. God alone on his throne! See him high and lifted up and bow the knee! Kneel before him; all adore him! As you learn to love him more, bow the knee.”

Our choir is small, but our God is big, and we rejoiced in proclaiming our adoration and praise for his wonderful gifts!
