Behind the Music

The majesty & power of God is something that the biblical authors came back to time and time again. They want us to "understand" that we cannot fully understand God.  Take a look at what Job penned about our Creator:

"Then Job replied: He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;  he suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds,  yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters  for a boundary between light and darkness. The pillars of the heavens quake,  aghast at his rebuke. By his power he churned up the sea;  by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces. By his breath the skies became fair;  his hand pierced the gliding serpent. And these are but the outer fringe of his works;  how faint the whisper we hear of him!  Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”

"And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him!" Our human nature tries to tell us differently. We like to think that we can figure out most of life on our own. For instance, just the other day a friend mentioned that he hesitates mentioning a "problem" to me because I won't rest until I have it figured out. Yet God is someone we won't figure out because He is all-together above us. 

The more our eyes are opened to the majesty of God, the more we understand the distance that exists between God and man and that Jesus is the only person that can reconcile us back to God. Only the blood of Christ covers our sinful condition so that God sees us as righteous. The song Majesty that we sang together Sunday explores this concept. Check out the lyrics below:

Here I am humbled by Your Majesty
Covered by Your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I'm a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the lamb

Now I've found
The greatest love of all is mine
Since You laid down Your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed but alive in Your hands

Here I am humbled by the love that You give
Forgiven so that I can forgive
So here I stand, knowing that I'm Your desire
Sanctified by glory and fire

And now I've found
The greatest love of all is mine
Since You laid down Your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed but alive in Your hands

Singing, Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by Your love
In the presence of Your Majesty, Majesty

We're singing, Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
And I'm nothing but alive in Your hands

We're singing, Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by Your love
In the beauty of Your Majesty
