As we close out the month of July, I would like to give you a gentle call to worship. Sometimes life gets so busy and overwhelming that we forget how much God has given us, done for us, and won for us and so we forget to just stop and worship. Worship Him for who He is, what He’s done, and His great faithfulness. So today, would you take a moment to quiet your heart and mind and let the words of this song flood your soul and become a song in your heart?
Once in a while, I like to highlight a song I would use for communion in a service. These songs are special to me because they exalt Jesus, remind us of His great sacrifice, and fill our hearts with gratitude. Therefore, today’s song feature will be one of these “communion” songs.
As Americans, we live in a culture of low commitment. People change jobs as easily as they change wardrobes, and relationship changes happen even faster. Few young people stay in the area they grew up, either moving around for college, work, or adventure. Most marriages are ending in divorce, many are not even getting married, and it is getting harder and harder to find people who will commit to ministry, church, or really anything. Many of us have experienced the sting of being forsaken and abandoned by friends, leaders we looked up to, and people we have trusted. However, the good news today is that God has never forsaken us, and He never will!
I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating the 4th of July! Though our nation seems to be spiraling into chaos and more restrictions, we still enjoy great freedom, and it is important for us to remember and celebrate them. One of the many freedoms we enjoy here in the States is the ability to worship God without hindrance. Many of our brothers and sisters around the world do not get to enjoy this luxury. Therefore, we must capitalize on and fully utilize this privilege and not take it for granted.
Happy July 1st! As Americans, we are getting ready to celebrate our nation’s birthday and the freedom upon which it was built. July 4th is a monumental day is many ways. However, no human organization is perfect, and we have seen our nation’s shortcomings in many ways these past few months. Yet the truth is that true freedom is only found in Christ. We cannot manufacture or guarantee it as a people, government, organization, or movement. Only Jesus Christ can give it to us. Therefore, as we celebrate freedom this weekend, I want to bring our attention to the freedom we have in Christ by sharing a worship song on this topic.
