I think it’s conceivable that how many of us think about God is a holdover from how he is portrayed in the Old Testament. We serve and submit to a mighty, all-powerful, unchanging God. God is sovereign and huge. Much of the time, our awesome God is how we relate to him. In fact, we can barely sing love songs to him. Rather, we sing songs that praise him, or songs that declare how great he is. Obviously praise and declarative songs have a place, but I’m afraid we might miss an intimate connection with Jesus if we rely too heavily on them.
