Title: When God Sings
Passage: Zephaniah 3:9-20
Does God ever sing?  Throughout Scripture God calls us to lift our voices with glad shouts and songs of praise to him, but does God himself ever have cause to sing?  Following the dark and ominous warnings of God's judgment for sin in Zephaniah, the light of God's grace breaks through in the glorious promise of his salvation which not only is cause for rejoicing among those who receive it, but leads the Lord himself to break out in song over his beloved, redeemed people.  Join us as we conclude our study of Zephaniah by looking at when God sings.
