Having sung of our God who holds the earth, we remind ourselves that He is our rock and redeemer. All blessings flow from Him, and are for His glory.
The greatest blessing we have been given is the free gift of eternal life through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for our sin. We sing the gospel to remind ourselves that we never move past this, only deeper into this beautiful gospel of grace through Christ.
In response to the Word, we have the opportunity to come to the Lord's table and remember His work of atonement on the cross. His body broken, His blood spilled for us. Us who were enemies and undeserving of such mercy and grace. As we reflect on His sacrifice, we will sing a song that helps us focus the attention of salvation back on Christ. It was Him who has freely lavished love upon us through the giving of Himself.
