It’s good to have fast fun songs to worship Jesus with!  They stir the heart and get the blood pumping and get lift you out of a funk!

“The point of your life is to point to Him. Whatever you are doing, God wants to be glorified, because this whole thing is His. It is His movie, His world, His gift.”  — Francis Chan
The big idea today is that the depth of your character will determine the vertical depth and horizontal reach of your influence.
The further and faster your influence extends, the deeper your foundation of character and conviction must be.
Public service requires private submission.
Build who you are off the stage and behind the stage and beside the stage way before you start thinking about getting on the stage.
Have you ever met someone and they talked a good talk but didnt walk the walk?  How did you feel? Disappointed?  Let down?  As a youth pastor and as a person I am always thinking what is it like to live on the other side of me?  What do people see when they see my life?  Am I living in such a way that those who see me will want to know God more?
We all are growing credibility accounts with people – and our character will either make deposits or withdrawls in that account.
Spiritual maturity isn’t based on how much truth you know, but on how much truth you live.
Jesus is interested in our heart and our behaviour.  His mission is to transform us  The good news is we dont have to clean ourselves up ever to come to Him but that He is at work in us to make us willing to be transformed.  Christianity isnt a bunch of rules but about a relationship but the way we live our lives does matter and make a difference, first with our vertical relationship with God, and secondly in the horizontal relationships with the people in our world.

I am a huge fan of Kim Walker Smith.  I love her voice and her style but most importantly I love how true worship pours out of her.  I had the privilege of seeing her worship lead and speak at a conference about 8 years ago and I was delighted to see that whether she was singing, speaking or just connecting with people who came to the conference, that she was the same person with the same great love for God and His people.  Be it on the stage or off the stage she radiated worship.

 

I love the heart of this song.  God invites us, He calls us, to draw near.  He invites us to find Him and to find all we need in Him.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. Ephesians 3:12
