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.
Spring is in the air. Here in my California home, we have daffodils blooming in all their splendor, birds joyfully chirping, and new life being born in the form of baby lambs and new greenery. It’s a season of celebration as winter is passing and new life is beginning. So in the spirit of celebration, let’s rejoice in what God has done in our lives, bringing new life from what was once dead and freedom to those once held captive.
As we wrap up our worship focus of God’s faithfulness, I want to share with you a beautiful retake on a classic chorus. “God, You’re So Good” was originally written by Travis Green and became popular during the Jesus movement. This was a time in Christian music when songs were simplified and contained choruses that were catchy and easy to remember. Song writers were moving away from the hymn style and structure and were creating short, easily learned melodies and lyrics.
Some songs are classics. They have withstood the test of time and are still around after over a hundred years. Today’s song is one of these timeless hymns. We could not do a worship set centered on God’s faithfulness and not highlight “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Chisholm and William Runyan.
