Over the past year and half, I have virtually attended Passion City Church’s Sunday morning services and been richly blessed and encouraged by the worship and teaching each week. Over the last few weeks, they’ve been singing a new song called “Son of Suffering” that is a beautiful exultation of Jesus’ suffering and reminder of the great sacrifice that was made for our freedom. Now, I’d like to share this song with you.
Worship is an integral part of who we are as created beings. We were made to worship. It’s woven into the fabric of our DNA. And we were created to worship our Creator. However, in the brokenness of sin we no longer automatically worship the One who gave us life and breath. Instead, we direct our worship towards other things and often forget God, the only One worthy of our praise. Therefore, today let’s focus our minds and hearts back to the One from whom are all things and in whom all things exist.
I hope you have been blessed and encouraged by our worship set on God’s power and namely Jesus’s victory over darkness. Truly, our Savior is high above all things, has conquered the enemy, and at His name the darkness must tremble and flee. Praise the Lord! To close out this set, I want to focus on a beautiful new song that was recently released. It is a simple, hymn-like song that covers the gospel message and gives us a powerful opportunity to respond to Jesus’s grace with a chorus of worship.
Are you ready for some mid-week encouragement? Today’s song feature is an upbeat song of declaration. It proclaims the supremacy of Christ and the truth that our King is the King above all kings and at His Name all the kingdoms and powers of this world must bow. However, while Jesus is the Lion of Judah who reigns over all, He is also the Lamb of God who takes away our sins. He is both Ruler and Redeemer, Judge and Savior, Prince and humble Servant, the Lion and the Lamb.
Anxiety is a really big thing in this broken world, and this year has been riddled with this uneasy feeling. While some people experience anxiety and stress to different degrees, from major panic attacks to a slight unsettled feeling, we’ve all had moments with lack of peace. A lack of calm assurance and trust to step out of the boat and onto the water in the midst of the storm with our eyes fixed on Jesus.
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.
I hope you all had a blessed Resurrection Sunday! As we continue to remember and celebrate the finished work of the cross, I have a newish song to share with you. “He Lives” by Church of the City was released in January of this year. It’s a powerful anthem celebrating the risen Lord. Therefore, it’s the perfect one to focus on post-Easter.
We are half way through Passion Week. It has been a different Easter season with so many things canceled and closed. However, if anything, we have more time and space to remember, ponder, and reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice. We are just two short days away from observing Good Friday and all that took place on that day over two thousand years ago. Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday, when different churches remember the Lord’s last supper with His disciples, the final instructions He gave them, and then His struggle in the garden of Gethsemane where He fully submitted His will to the Father’s.
I love it when timeless hymns are given new life and vigor. Not that the original song was old-fashioned or out-dated, but sometimes a new bridge or chorus to a traditional hymn allows it to speak to a new generation in a fresh way. I feel like this is true for the hymn “Jesus Paid it All” with Passion Music’s new bridge added to it.
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.
