Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. Psalm 98:1
When the Bible talks about God’s right hand, it’s always in relation to His power. There’s no question that in the world of creation that God has done incredible and marvelous things. Look around both large and small He created it all.
But I believe – and the Bible bears this out – His greatest “work” is His salvation for us. I’m not sure we can quite grasp what God the Father did to give up His son. Of course we understand in theory what that meant, but it was still excruciatingly difficult and painful to give Him over.
So a new song is in order. Let’s celebrate this salvation! It’s one thing if it all ended at Christ’s death. But it didn’t. There was a burial, resurrection, and ascension.
