Lord is higher above all nations… Who is like the Lord our God, who is
seated on higher?… Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, who
turns the difficult rock into springs of water’(113:four-five 114:7-eight). The Lord
is higher than we could ever visualize. There is no greatness like the
greatness of the Lord. All human greatness can’t even commence to examine
with the greatness of God. His greatness is not only the greatness of
His energy. It is also the greatness of His enjoy. When we sing, ‘How
terrific Thou art’, we sing not only of His energy – ‘Thy energy all through
the universe displayed’. We sing also of His enjoy – ‘And when I assume
that God His Son not sparing, sent Him to die – I scarce can take it in,
that on the Cross my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take
away my sin…’(Mission Praise, 506).
to us, O Lord, not to us but to Your Name be the glory simply because of Your
enjoy and faithfulness’(1). God loves us. He loves us with a faithful
enjoy, ‘an everlasting love’, a ‘love that will not let us go’. His enjoy
‘never comes to an end’. Practically nothing can separate us from His enjoy (Jeremiah
31:three Lamentations three:22-23 Romans eight:38-39 Church Hymnary, 677). What
have we carried out to deserve such enjoy? Certainly absolutely nothing! We are ‘sinners’.
We do not deserve to be loved by God. We have carried out absolutely nothing to earn His
enjoy. Enjoy starts with God. It comes from Him. How do we know that He
loves us? Have we proved ourselves worthy of His enjoy? No! – ‘God shows
His enjoy for us in this: When we had been nevertheless sinners, Christ died for
us’. ‘To God be the glory!’(Romans five:eight Church Hymnary, 374).
