” …and those who had been victorious…sang the song of Moses…and the song of the Lamb, saying, ‘Great and marvelous are Your works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways.'” Rev. 15:3
Recently, at the church I attend, we invited missionaries to share the work God is doing among the people they serve. They spoke of the several years of living in a remote village learning the language and coming to know the people before gaining the ability to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Months of teaching ensued beginning with Genesis, where all mankind comes under sin’s judgment of death, and culminating in the Savior who frees all who will believe from that judgment.
The result? A new church was born, new souls added to the kingdom of God. Our newest brothers and sisters in Christ made up of young and old, one by one gave testimony (through a translator) to the glory of God, praising Him for the Savior who brought light into their darkness. As each spoke, the joy of the Lord, the light of life sparkled from their eyes and glowed on their faces. They sang the song of the victorious.
Let’s remember today the glory of God that shines in our hearts, every heart of every believer. As we do, let’s sing today and everyday the song of the victorious by sharing our own song of God’s glory in us. Would you bless my heart in sharing your testimony of being born into God’s kingdom and in so doing be blessed anew with the telling?
Here is the beginning of my song of victory: I was “snatched from the fire”, Jude 23. when I was 10 years old, through the fire and brimstone preaching of a visiting evangelist. At 12 the Lord began drawing me near to Him to know Him as my Lord as well as Savior. Through the years He has come to be my Shepherd and my dearest Friend as He walks me from faith to faith. The joy of the Lord continues to be my strength. He is ever faithful to finish the work He began in me at age 10 when I first starting singing the victor’s song and one day I will sing it with multitudes from every nation, peoples, and tribe, around His throne.
“Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name?” Rev. 15:4a
If you do not know the song of the victorious, it can be yours by simply calling on the name of Jesus, believing without Him you are still under sin’s judgment of death. And then believing in God’s love that sent Jesus to take your death so you could have life eternal.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
