song list from 6/08/08

Here's the song list from last Sunday at Grace Church:

Glories of Calvary- Steve and Viki Cook (cd- Songs for the Cross Centered Life)
Amazing GraceJohn Newton (contemporary ending written Nate Fancher)
Lion of Judah- Robin Mark (cd- Revival In Belfast)
Worthy, You Are Worthy- Matt Redman (cd- Facedown)
Jesus, Precious- Nate Fancher (cd- Mali- Awakening)
My Chains Are Gone- 2nd verse- "The Lord has promised good to me....") Chris Tomlin (cd- See The Morning)

It was a great morning. I love singing songs that ring with the clarity of the gospel. God has been really moving in me to keep the simple message of the death and resurrection of Christ as the grounds by which I lead worship. My heart is to lead others into seeing how great God is. My hope is that people would see "the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ". (2 Corinthians 4:6) God alone can do this work; and he uses his Word to do that. That's where I come in as a worship leader. To "skillfully combine God's word with music..." as Bob Kauflin puts it.

As people sing the truth of God's glory as seen in Christ, I pray that their hearts would respond to Him with love and adoration singing, "Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!" (Psalm 48:1)
