Sunday School Songs


This evening Rooster had his first piano lesson.  He banged on the keys, and I sang "Lord's Army." I'm pretty sure he's a musical prodigy.

We often sing around our house. We love those little Sunday School songs, motion and all! They are those kid songs that are often outgrown when a child graduates to "big church". Well, I'm proud to say I never outgrew them, or maybe I've just grown into them again...

Anyway, as we were singing tonight, I was reminded that while these songs are written for children, the message is one we can all appreciate. 
"My God is so big, so strong and so mighty. There's nothing my God cannot do!"
We are reminded that God is truly all powerful. He is strong and mighty to save. There is no problem God can't handle!
"Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so." 
We are reminded of the great love God has for us so clearly spelled out in scripture. We can have confidence that God wants what's best for us and that his strength is made perfect in our weakness. 
"...I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E"
In a world full of messages contrary to the Word of God, we can know the Bible is sufficient for all of our battles. We can stand firmly on the Word of God, unwavering, with complete confidence.
"Since Jesus Christ came in and cleansed me from my sin, I'm in-right, out-right, up-right, down-right happy all the time." 
Praise the Lord our joy comes from our Salvation and not our circumstances. Even at the darkest of time, we can have hope that joy will come in the morning. 
"STOP and let me tell you, what the Lord has down for me...GO and tell the story of the Christ of Calvary"
We all have a story to tell! We are commanded in scripture to go and tell others the Good News. We should always look for opportunities to say, "Stop and let me tell you what God has done for me and what he will do for you!"

They are such simple songs, but they carry a powerful Truth. We often think of children's Bible stories and songs as just watered down versions of the "grown-up" Bible, but really I think those simple Bible lessons we teach our children are really the heart of the Gospel. 

God is all-powerful. He love us and wants what's best for us. He gave us the Bible so we would know his plan and his purpose of us. God gives us joy in our Salvation, and wants us to share that gift with others. 

So simple, and so true. 

So next time you hear your little one singing "If your happy and you know it..." go ahead and clap your hands because even the simplest of songs can be an offering of praise and testimony to God's unfailing Truth.
