Ascension Sunday A

Day: Ascension Sunday

Lectionary Passage: Psalm 47

Scripture Focus: Psalm 47:1-2

Object: None

How many of you know the song “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands…?” Well, our Bible story talks about clapping our hands because God is so wonderful. And when I read that I couldn’t help but think of that song. Only, I want to change up the words a little. Let’s sing it like this:

If you love God and you know it,

Clap your hands

(Clap hands twice)

Let’s give it a try:

If you love God and you know it,

Clap your hands

(Clap hands twice)

If you love God and you know it,

Clap your hands

(Clap hands twice)

If you love God and you know it,

Then your face will surely show it

If you love God and you know it,

Clap your hands.

(Clap hands twice)

That was great! And fun, too! And that’s exactly what our Bible story had in mind. Our story is about how amazing God is and how much we should celebrate God every day. And what better way to celebrate than by clapping and singing!? I want you all to remember that God is great and full of love for each and every one of us and that is really something wonderful to celebrate. So, make sure you sing our new song to help you remember how wonderful and amazing our God really is.

Let’s pray: God thank you for being so amazing to us. Help us to remember that you are way bigger than we can even imagine and we’ve got to celebrate all the wonder of your works. Amen.
