Psalm 5 (Let the Party Last All Night!)

Psalm 5 (Let the Party Last All Night!)

Matt Greene

 

you’ll welcome us with open arms
    when we run for cover to you.
Let the party last all night!

– Psalm 5:11 (The Message)

 

Every morning, I lay out my life
And wait for your fire to descend
A garbage pile of selfishness
Anger, hatred and sin

You’re sitting on Your perfect throne
Handing out a decree
There’s a gathering of saints and sinners
And you’ve made a way for me

You’ve invited me
Say you delight in me
It’s incredible that

You welcome us with open arms
We’ll run for cover to you
Let the party last all night
Let the party last all night

You don’t socialize with the wicked
Or have evil as kith or as kin
Lies and boasts and death are not welcome
And me, I’ve called them all friend

You’ve invited me
Say you delight in me
You’re incredible

 

God’s love is a party, and his guest list is a paradox. He being perfect, He doesn’t get close to wickedness, hatred, sin and death. We being imperfect, we are often best friends with wickedness, hatred, sin and death. You would think this would put us at odds with God. When he sends out his call for us to join in His celebration of Life and Love, we will certainly be left out. But we’re not. He finds a way to overcome logic, and happily invites us. So when singing this, accept that invitation and enter the party, warts and all. You’ll be so busy dancing and singing, you won’t even notice how His Love is changing you from the inside out. -Matt Greene
