We’re in the middle of Passion Week. Palm Sunday has passed, and we looked at the empty praise Jesus’ followers gave Him that memorable day over two thousand years ago and the take-aways we can glean from that event. Good Friday is before us and all that it represents, along with Jesus’ struggle in the garden of Gethsemane. And beyond that is the glory of the Resurrection, the empty tomb, and the finished work. So it’s appropriate that this week’s song for “Here I Am to Worship” should cover all these highlights from Passion Week.
Have you ever heard a worship song and gotten chills? The power and beauty of the song almost immediately ushers in the presence of God and touches your heart. If you haven’t had a moment like this, I pray that you experience one soon! It’s amazing and profound.
Now that we have learned to appropriately prepare our hearts for worship, let’s dive into actually worshipping the Lord through song. The plan is to share one song each week and build a worship set of four songs each month. However, since we’re in mid-March, we will wait until April to start the first worship set.
In the meantime, I have a couple of powerful songs I’d like to share with you as we get ready for Resurrection Sunday and all that it stands for. Today’s worship song is “Behold the Lamb” by Passion Worship.
This song has been circling around in my head for the last week or so. While it hasn’t always been a favorite of mine, God really impressed it upon my heart recently. The most powerful part (and my favorite!) is the chorus:
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars, victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace
Welcome back to another post on Here I Am to Worship! Last week, we learned a lesson in surrender and how a surrendered life is the greatest offering and act of worship we can give our loving God. This week, we’re going to continue with a great follow-up worship song titled, “Jesus at the Center.”
Last week, we reflected and looked back on God’s constancy and steadfastness in the past year and throughout our lives. We celebrated and praised God for His unending faithfulness towards us. This week we’re going to look at what an appropriate response would be to God’s great faithfulness.
