The dancing God
Zephaniah 3:17 says 'The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you;in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Here we see a picture of God. The happy God, the dancing God who beholds his people, who beholds his church and sings over them. He gazes upon their beauty and the light that radiates of his church delights him. There was a time when judgement and wrath was their portion, but look how he has loved them. For the Man with eyes like fire and feet like bronze, who leads His church is His Son. And look at his hands and feet, they are pierced, it is because of His wounds that light radiates of his church for the Light belongs to the Son and look how marvellously He covers them with great delight. Behold the dancing God, He has come with songs, songs of merriment, and songs of joy. He quietens their souls with his abundant love. And behold, the Blessed Spirit, the One who sealed them till the day of their redemption, who instilled His fruits of love in them so that they may behold the manifold perfections of the Son, who perfectly displayed to them the heart of His Father. Look now and see how the Three, the blessed Three stand in perfect unity, with a gracious smile and cheerful playfulness. The beauty of holiness fills the place and His church with one voice, the Baptists and the Anglicans, the free and the redeemed, the non denominations and denominations with one voice, sing Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD God Almighty.
