Always have enjoyed this band…and now I found this video. What great grace for such needy sinners!
When the choir and orchestra from Azusa Pacific University led the morning worship at Providence on May 19, 2013, we all experienced a wonderful spirit of praise and adoration, of celebration and joy! Throughout the congregation, people responded to the morning worship with words of gratitude for the way the students demonstrated a passion for Jesus Christ in each song. As our guests for the morning, they served us well by leading us in a special time of worship.
Here is the closing song for the 9:30 service that morning–a call for all believers to take the gospel to the neighborhood and to the nations and tell them of the gift of grace God gives in Jesus Christ. I pray that you will enjoy this and pass it along!
Here is a random sampling of photos from the trip Cathy and I took to Italy the first two weeks of May. Several of you have asked when they were coming so here they are! Although there are many more, I hope these will be fun for you to see.
Here is a beautiful testimony to the amazing presence of Jesus Christ in our lives…this clip from our morning worship on March 24, 2013 makes my heart soar in praise! Hope it does the same for you!
Over a decade ago, thousands of college students assembled for a day of worship at a farm on the outskirts of Memphis, Tennessee. I nearly wore out the DVD that came out of that event, but one song in particular has been on my mind lately and today I found it on YouTube.
Shelley Nirider sang this piercing song of worship, affirming that when we have given our lives to Jesus Christ, life is all about Him and no longer about us. There are a couple of comments by participants during the first 30 seconds but the rest of the video is just the simple, gentle song acknowledging that life really is all about Jesus!
Also, love the closed caption translation across the bottom of the screen! Definitely a moment of worship worth sharing!
Tomorrow I will be preaching on how we respond to the call of Christ on our lives by looking at how Simon, James and John left everything to follow Him in Luke 5:1-11. Be sure to watch this video before you listen to the sermon if you can!
As the tragedy of the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma continues to resonate in the hearts of people all over the nation, this song of hope and worship from Victory Church in Oklahoma City (just a few miles from the path of the tornado) offers the answer through the name of Jesus Christ!
Please remember to pray for those whose lives have been turned upside down by this storm…and continue to remember the victims of Hurricane Sandy who are still trying to recover.
Your name, Hope for the hopeless
Your name, Healing the broken
Your grace Is making me whole again
In your name Carries the weary
Your name Rescues the hurting
Your grace Making me whole again
Your name is holy Your name is worthy
Your name is Jesus
