The song of all people

Psalm 67:3 “Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!”

Praise of God will become the song of all peoples. This is not yet. There are many who do not praise Him. There are many who are outright haters of God. There are many who worship “god”, but not the God of the Bible.
God will judge, so says the next verse. He will judge “with equity”. He is the perfect judge, perfect in His righteousness. Those who have despised and rejected His rule will be judged equitably, fairly, according to the perfect standard of the righteous judge. This seems hard, but consider God’s mercy.
Many will be judged but pronounced “righteous.” They will be able to stand before God. They will praise Him.
The song of praise that His people will sing also contains a large measure of thankfulness.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” There is not one of us who could stand before the righteous judge. We can stand before Him and praise Him because of the perfect righteousness of Another.
Praise and thankfulness are joined together through the One who has saved us.

Washing corpses

Writing on the doctrine of regeneration, C. H. Spurgeon notes, “This great work (regeneration) is supernatural. It is not an operation which a man performs for himself: a new principle is infused, which works in the heart, renews the soul, and affects the entire man. It is not a change of my name, but a renewal of my nature, so that I am not the man I used to be, but a new man in Christ Jesus. To wash and dress a corpse is a far different thing from making it alive: man can do the one, God alone can do the other.”

Many sounds of praise

“Think not that all praise is gathered up in singing! It is the praise of God when the mother tells her child of the goodness of Him who made the stars, and who spread the world with flowers. It is praise when the young convert tells of the joy of his heart to his companion and bids him fly to the Fountain where he has washed and been made clean. It is praise, praise of a high order, too, when the advanced Believer in his old age tells of the faithfulness of God, and how not one good thing has failed of all that the Lord God has promised!” C. H. Spurgeon
