The Christian Community sings the song of justice and love.

You have to stand in awe of rooms like the Great Hall in the Wartburg. I doubt that this hall had a similar appearance at the time of Luther, yet events might have been comparable.
Musicians were arriving for an evening concert when we visited the Wartburg. I can imagine that a concert in this hall would sound magnificent.
Christians are musicians who play a special melody in this world that God has created.
“I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O LORD, I will make music.”
Psalm 101:1 English Standard Version
The Christian community sings of God’s justice.
All of us want justice. We believe that someone, somewhere has harmed us, but we have also wronged others. God is perfectly just, and in his justice he declares us innocent of sin through the merits of his Son, Jesus Christ. This is melody line of the church.
The Christian community also sings of the steadfast love of God.
God’s love for broken human creatures is constant and consistent. His love never fails. Daily God pours his love on his church. Daily he feeds us. Daily he clothes us. It is this steadfast love of God that sings in harmony with his justice.
The world needs to hear the church sing in the great hall of God’s creation. May we sing as God has gifted us.
