Singing Our New Song To The Body Of Christ

Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:

Singing Our New Song To The Body Of Christ

“‘I will appoint you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. Behold the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.’ Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing His praise from the end of the earth!”

Isaiah 42:6-7,9-10 Bless God; for Christ, our “covenant,” is intended to be “ a light to the nations,” opening “blind eyes,” bringing prisoners and “those who dwell in darkness” out from the dungeon and prison of sin into the light of Him. These prophetic words were declared “before they spring forth.”

Praise God, my brothers and sisters in Christ, because now, for us, this word has been fulfilled, in Jesus. Let us sing this “new song” of the “new things” God has done for us through Jesus Christ, Who God our Father has appointed “as a covenant to the people.”

The former things of the Old Covenant have come to pass and now we are living and loving in a New Covenant. As ministers of our Lord, who have seen, accepted, and yielded to the truth of our declared priesthood to God (1st Peter 2: 5-9, Revelation 1: 5-6), let us sing and praise God with our “new song” of new life through His New Covenant.

So many, in the body of Christ, remain blind to the new covenant. Many languish still in dungeons and prisons of sin, darkness, and confusion. Still others unknowingly shred and divide God’s church over points which themselves would be moot if all would truly see, accept, and yield to the new covenant, which as we have seen in this prophetic word from Isaiah, is Christ Himself.

Christ is our covenant. Let us honor our Lord by becoming fully aware of and fully yielded to Christ our covenant. He is the healing for His Own body. “Come to Me” is His word for everyone, everywhere, all the time. By honoring our Lord and His covenant first, we truly are believing and confessing that Jesus Christ, right now, is the living, resurrected, and present Head of His body, the church.

Let us sing, and keep singing, this new song of the covenant, of the new things given us in Christ “until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
