"After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives". (Mark 14:26) Can you hear Jesus singing? Can you imagine that. A perfect Man with a perfect voice! Was he a bass or a tenor? Was there a down-home twang to his voice? Or was there an unwavering crystal pitch? Imagine further if He appeared on the "Jerusalem Idol" program. He'd be a sure winner. Wouldn't be close.
Did he close his eyes and sing to his Father? Or did he look into his disciples’ eyes and smile at their deep camaraderie?
My meditating on this is the result of John Piper's devotion app of yesterday. John said "O, I can hardly wait to hear Jesus sing! I think the planets would be jolted out of orbit if he lifted his native voice in our universe. But we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken; so, Lord, come on and sing". Some day soon I will have the amazing thrill of hearing That Voice. Will You? Accept Him to hear Him and join His song. Sounds great.
