Last week during our Monday morning base worship set, we sang a song that was written in the 1800s called Holy, Holy, Holy. While we were singing it, I had a moment where I got a glimpse of the greatness of our God. God is, today, revealing Himself to us. He is revealing Himself as holy. I see it in the songs that are written today like Revelation Song or Agnus Dei (that both contain lots of “holy” lines in the choruses). But what amazed me last week is that God has been this way and revealing Himself this way to us for hundreds of years.
For me, it’s easy to see God revealing Himself in the Old Testament to people and disassociate that with real life today. But for some reason, the distance of two hundred years was enough to amaze me but close enough to feel so real. In that one song, I suddenly started liking old songs even more! God is so good and so real and He’s truly the same yesterday, today, and forever.
