Tonight, Terry & I watched a fantastic sermon via Hillsong Live Stream. For those of you who know Hillsong church.. you’ll likely know who preached, but hey, I”m not going to name names, as that would very much go against the entire message tonight.
Hillsong church has been putting a lot of focus on No Other Name for quite a while now…. leading up to the new album release THIS TUESDAY !! (Excited much !!)
I’ve heard all the stories before…. read and re-read all the scripture that talk of the power in the name of Jesus… but tonight’s message simply brings it home and reminds me that we are capable of ANYTHING in and through the power of the name of Jesus. It’s so easy to get bogged down in our day to day, sometimes stressful existence, forgetting that we can overcome ALL things in Jesus’ name !!
I have been unwell for several weeks now… and while I have been claiming that health & wholeness that Jesus came to give us… I know I haven’t been claiming it as wholeheartedly as I could have been. It’s just so easy to get down when you’re dealing with lack of energy, a messy house due to said lack of energy, slightly unsettled children due to a decreased amount of attention from their mother, and a general frustration at ‘just feeling yuck’. Add the lovely side effects of being on strong antibiotics for a prolonged period.. and it’s easy to get stroppy. BUT… Jesus came that we may have life and have it ABUNDANTLY !!
This situation simply reiterates what I already know… God uses EVERY situation to bring about growth !! I find that I learn something in every situation….. good, bad, or just mundane. It certainly does seem that I learn a lot more in a tough situation though… but hey.. Life in abundance is what he came to give us … so that is what we shall have !!
A song that will be on the new album coming out on Tuesday, is ‘This I believe’. It is a fantastic worship song based on the apostles creed. I think I may have shared the lyrics before, but here is a small segment of them…. I just LOVE singing them EVERY time !!
I believe in God the Father
I believe in Christ the Son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
For I believe in the name of Jesus
It is so great to be able to sing what is so deeply etched in my heart, in a great worship song !!
When attending the CRCA church prior to where we worship now, we would recite the Apostles creed on a semi regular basis…. I just love it !!
1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:
3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:
4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:
5. The third day he rose again from the dead:
6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:
7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:
8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:
9. I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints:
10. The forgiveness of sins:
1l. The resurrection of the body:
12. And the life everlasting. Amen.
Blessings Peeps !!
