life, liberty, and the pursuit of Jesus
Category Archives: worship
Some of my friends and I have been talking, off and on, over the past two years about writing music. We have done a little bit here and there but after yesterday’s sermon from Pastor Mike it is time to take action. Here are some great ideas from Adam Russell over at indigenous worship about songwriting. I hope that when we look back at 2011 this time next year that we can say it was a year we started to take action. Be Intentional!
My friend Pastor Scott Hobbs has a wonderful post about the “new” things God has for us. While I was reading and meditating on his words and the words from Isaiah I was struck by the fact that sometimes these “new” things can pass us by and we won’t even notice them until it is too late. In many places throughout the Bible you will find the words “seeking”, “watching”, and “waiting”. These are all things we must do as well as be in constant communication with God so that we will not miss these new, wonderful, and exciting things that HE has planned for us. Don’t miss it!
why do we worship?
because our God is an awesome God and even though the best we can do is nothing but filthy dirty rags to Him we are made Holy in His sight but the blood of His Son Jesus!
I will continue to worship with everything I have not because I feel that He will “like me more” if I do but because He is worth it. It is not something I have to do, it is something I get to do.
I will worship the Almighty God. The Creator of Heaven and earth. I hope the others will see the fire and have the desire to come along with me but if they don’t that is their choice.
Calling all musicians. Check out this article on playing skillfully. I think it is mucho importante! I know that I need to practice more so that I can be a better musical tool in the toolbox of the church. Sometimes I hear people say why do we have to practice so much? If the Holy spirit is in it , it will just come together. While I do believe that is true and definitely can happen I also believe that we need to take some responsibility and sharpen our skills whether we play an instrument, sing, or do all the technical stuff behind the scenes. We do not want to be a distraction especially when we are leading others into worshiping the Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth. Click here for Peter Park’s article
Here is a great animation to go along with a great song. Watch and Listen!
This song has been in my head since monday night. I it is wonderful Psalm of praise by Joseph Sasser who is home with Jesus now. I need to find an MP3 of it to share with you guys but here are the words. Sing it to yourself today (in 6/8 time)
All authority is His, all the power belongs to Him
On bended knee we cry He is the King
King over all
He is Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth
He is Lord over darkness and Lord of His Word
He is Lord in the battle right where you are
He is Lord, Jesus is Lord!
