With One Voice- Reggie Kidd on Worship

Many thanks to Josh Otte for turning me on to Reggie Kidd's With One Voice. Here's a quote on Kidd's redemptive-historical, Jesus-centered book on worship:

"When Paul tells his churches to “let the word of Christ dwell
. . . richly” among them by means of “psalms, hymns and spiritual
songs” (Col. 3:16 niv), he’s inviting them to do more than use
music as a “warm-up” to the sermon. The song is not ornamentation;
it is participation in the very redemption of all creation. It
plays its own role in God’s showcasing his saving power before
humans and angels (Eph. 3:10)."

"[The song] is participation in the very redemption of all creation."

I cherish this truth...

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."(2 Cor 5:17)

"What counts is a new creation." (Gal 6:15)

Recently, I've been overwhelmed with the the connection between the New Covenant (Age of the Spirit) and the inauguration of the New Creation. I've been preaching through Gal. 5 and have had the wonderful privilege of sharing the OT background and NT Conception of what it means to hope "through the Spirit", "live by the Spirit" and to be "in the Messiah."

Kidd's quote is poignant, good news.
