Wait till you hear this!

Today’s reading: Psalm 78; Romans 7

4 We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. Psalm 78:4

Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God. Romans 4:4

Wait till you hear this!

With the perspective of the New Testament and the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, we could say “Wait till you hear this!” to the Psalmist who reveled in God’s mighty works to Israel.

God had done for Israel something unthinkable, unimaginable. He brought ten plagues on Egypt, delivered an enslaved people from that world powerhouse, led them out of the land loaded with spoils, opened up the Red Sea for them to cross, and drowned the pursuing army in the water behind them. This is a story that needs to be told generation after generation. Pass it on!

But wait till you hear this!

God took on human flesh and lived on earth. We know Him as Jesus of Nazareth, who is the Christ, God’s Anointed One. His people rejected Him and crucified Him, but He rose again from the dead. Now millions of people believe in Him. They trust Him, not their own good works, for the forgiveness of their sins and the gift of eternal life. As a result, these believers from every nation and language in the world belong to Him and live to bear fruit for God.

Think of it! God delivered a nation of a million people out of Egypt, some 3500 years ago, but in the past 2000 years, right down to today, He has been delivering untold millions of people from spiritual death and slavery to become His fruitful people. Tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he is doing. Pass it on! Wait till they hear that!
