April 1st. April Fool’s Day. But today is no joke. Today is the beginning of the month leading to Easter. Today in the midst of the panic that has gripped our world, we’re going to forget the crazy, forget the stress, forget the unknowns, and choose to worship and remember all that this season represents for us as believers in the Risen Lord. So take a moment to find a quiet space and reflect on all that Jesus has done for you and what your response to that gift will be.
As we finish out this worship set focused on the love of God, I’m going to close with a song that has been on my mind and heart for the past couple of months. It was actually the song that inspired this whole set and attuned my heart to meditate on God’s immeasurable love. This song is “Love on the Line” by Hillsong Worship.
Continuing our focus on God’s incredible love, today’s song feature explores the greatness of God’s love and how far He was willing to pursue us. I wonder if we sometimes grow callused to the awesomeness of God’s love and lose sight of how great a sacrifice and how much it cost Him to love us so. We get used to the story of the cross and the message of salvation that it is no longer novel or amazing. But this is a danger place to be! For God’s love is amazing and we should never lose our wonder and gratitude for His immense sacrifice.
As we come to the close of January and get used to the rhythm and routine of 2020, let’s not forget the excitement and anticipation we had at New Year’s. Let’s not forget the resolutions, dreams, and goals we made at the beginning of the year. And may we especially not forget the covenants and resolutions we made with God. So as we wrap up our New Year worship set, I have a special song I want to share with you that focuses on our devotion to the Lord.
As we march forward into the new year and make our new year resolutions and goals, let’s make some goals for our spiritual life also. Let’s renew our purpose and commitment to Christ. Let’s review and remind ourselves what a surrendered life to God looks like. And as we do this, the natural outpouring should be praise. Praise for all that God has done for us and worship as a sacrifice and offering of surrender.
Merry Christmas! What a special day this is! Joy as children open up brightly colored packages, merriment as families gather together, and yummy food as people come together to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world. And on this special day, I have a special worship song to share.
Christmas is just around the corner! Have you been busy with parties, celebrations, and festive activities? I have! This is such a busy season! So much joy, so much excitement, so much celebration! But let’s not forget the Reason for the season.
Christmas is such a special time of year! Lots of lights, parties, decorations, beauty, and celebration. But what’s it all for? Who are we celebrating? Jesus.
The focus is Jesus. The celebration is for His birth. The giving of gifts is in remembrance of the greatest Gift of all. But sometimes we lose sight of Him in Christmas. Sometimes the Christ Child gets lost in the busyness. Sometimes we forget the reason of the season.
Advent is here! The long awaited Christmas season is upon us! A time for merriment, carols, and festivities. Therefore, let’s make our worship reflect this special season. Let’s celebrate Christmas by worshiping and adoring the King of Kings!
To wrap up our month of worship focused on surrender and gratitude, I want to share with you a song that has been speaking deeply to me over the last couple of months. It’s a call to surrender, a call to make Jesus our everything and all that we’ll ever need. It’s a prayer, asking God to fill us with more of Himself and less of ourselves. It’s an anthem to declare to ourselves, reminding us of our mission and purpose. This is “Fade Away” by Passion Music.
