“Come! Let us raise a joyful song to the Lord, a shout of triumph to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving, and sing Him psalms of triumph.”
Raise a shout of triumph to the Lord. Our victory is sure because of the Rock of our salvation. Our adversary’s head is crushed under the heel of our Savior.
Zechariah sings to John, his unborn son, “And you, my child, you shall be called Prophet of the Highest, for you will be the Lord’s forerunner, to prepare His way and lead His people to salvation through knowledge of Him, by the forgiveness of their sins.” (Luke 1:76-77)
Our salvation is secured “by the forgiveness of [our] sins.”
The angels — on the night Jesus is born — sing, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and on earth His peace for men on whom His favour rests.” (Luke 2:14)
Our salvation is secured by “[God’s] favour.”
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has bestowed on us in Christ every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. In Christ He chose us before the world was founded, to be dedicated, to be without blemish in His sight, to be full of love; and He destined us — such was His will and pleasure — to be accepted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in order that the glory of His gracious gift, so graciously bestowed on us in His Beloved, might redound to His praise.” (Ephesians 1:3-7)
Raise a shout of triumph; sing a song of victory for our salvation is secured on the Rock, who is Jesus Christ.
