Glory to the Lord
“ . . . and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Can you picture this? Every tongue will confess. I wonder how that will sound. I once sat in a large auditorium and heard those assembled sing “Wonderful Grace of Jesus”. (The chorus divides into four parts-each part singing different phrases.) My thought was “Will everyone know which part to sing?” When the people came to the end of the verse, all the voices divided as if they had the music right in front of them. I felt I was in Heaven. Those gathered that night knew the song. I believe hearing every tongue saying “Jesus Christ is Lord” will be like it was in that auditorium. It sounded like angels singing.
The sound will surround us. We won’t be able to hear anything else. We who believe He is Lord will be saying it as a form of worship-telling Him he is worthy to receive our devotion, our honor, and our praise.
God will hear our words of confession. He will be glorified. His Son will be recognized for who He is-Lord of our lives.
