But as with any passage of the Bible, it’s not the words on the page that matter the most. It’s the truth underneath the words.
And that truth is The Word is Love and became flesh for our good and God’s glory.
In reading Isaiah 12, we’re reminded that the Lord is worthy of our thanks because of who he is and what he does. He deserves our songs, our shouts, and yes, our words, too.
Our words do matter. We’re to use them often.
But the message underneath our words matters more. Language is a tool to communicate what is deeper inside us.
What is deeper inside us?
God is the deepest thing inside us. He has become our salvation (Isaiah 12:2) and makes his home in us (1 Corinthians 6:19, John 14:23). Can it get any better than that?
How can we adequately express that in mere words?
