Last night I had the privilege of hearing Fernando Ortega perform his worshipful, anointed music at a conference with Anne Graham Lotz.
(Never heard of him? Check it out here.)
There was a line in one of the songs we sang that had the word ‘anthem’ in it.
That word has been coursing through my spirit for a couple of weeks.
I looked it up and found out (no surprise to many of you) it is from the Greek, ‘antiphon’–sounding in answer, a voice in return, a hymn of praise.’
All of creation was made to ‘answer back’ to the Creator; why? I wondered.
Why indeed? They are ‘answering back’ to their Creator.
May we ever do the same.
