We had a wonderful night of worship this weekend...thanks to everyone who came! We've had some requests for the setlist, so here it is:
We are so encouraged when we have the opportunity to worship God. When 1worship was first formed, we had a goal of bringing together people from different churches to worship together. While we have always invited everyone to join us, all our events to date had been held at the Fellowship. But this summer held exciting new opportunities as we were able to play out at several different locations...even out of state! It's amazing how God directs and leads you to places you never expected to go!
I’m always amazed at how God’s timing works. As we were planning this upcoming 1worship event, Chris had the idea of “surrender” on his heart, and the theme emerged from there. Around the same time, my own Bible study time started (perhaps not so) coincidentally to look at the widespread neglect the modern church seems to have for the most precious gift we believers have – the Holy Spirit.
We get a lot of requests for 1worship events, and they are such an encouragement to our ministry. God has blessed our ministry for the past 5 years and this spring we will be having our 8th event! That being said, I know that it has been almost a year since we have had a night of worship, and I wanted to share where our hearts are at on that topic.
There is nothing better than being submissive to the point that you can physically feel the presence of the Holy Spirit moving. I was touched in ways that I have never felt before during our last night of praise and worship. I pray that our last event served as an encouragement for everyone who attended.
A few people have asked for the set list from the other night so I decided to put together a quick post. God bless!
The Apostle Peter is a man I have been drawn to in Scripture. I think, in some ways, who I am relates to who he was. I am by no means the zealous witness that he became (yet), but deep down I desire the same thing he did... to be close to Jesus.
Throughout my life as a Christian, the idea of hope has been somewhat elusive. It is a concept that I never really wrapped my head around because I had never given it much thought. One reason for this is the fact that hope has been adapted by culture to mean something different from the hope that is found in Scripture. This post is here to share where my search for understanding has led me so far.
In those moments where it’s “hard to find God”, it’s not because God has made Himself hard to see... it’s because I’m not looking in the right place or with the right perspective. I was listening to Hillsong’s Desert Song this morning and was really struck by the bridge:
