I love this song. The message is so powerful and it really gets you excited about the day when Jesus will call us believers home and we will rise up to meet our Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds! This song has been a great encouragement and help to me in some rough times. I got the chance to see Chris Tomlin perform this song live at his concert which was awesome! Here is a video I found on Youtube with the lyrics to the song. Take a moment and listen to the song while reading the words on the video. It is amazing to think back on what Christ did for us and how we have a great future with Him to look forward to!
I saw this video on a blog I read periodically, www.collegeministrythoughts.com. These guys, Tenth Avenue North, have came on the contemporary music scene this year and are by far one of the best Christian bands out there right now in my opinion. At first look, these guys don’t look like the normal “Christian contemporary” band, but their music is very powerful and you can see through their music and attitude, they truly love God! Watch this video of them playing at the Dove Awards and make sure to watch the end when they get and accept their award!
As you watch this video and the story behind it, think about this, God seems to use very unexpected people to do great things for Him! The Bible is filled with story after story of men who fell into great sin, who where from poor homes, who were outcasts and “unpopular” in their day, yet God used them to do the greatest things for Him! He will still do the same today. This video is just a simple illustration of this truth, enjoy!
Pastor Rick Warren shares a few good thoughts about this story also! Check it out at http://www.susan-boyle.com/video/Susan-Boyle-Commentary-by-Rick
You got to love this guy! Not only is David Crowder one of the leading guys in the modern worship scene, but he just a plain old guy that has a normal life. It’s cool to see artists and especially Christians artists that are just real people who have real life’s! Not sure the point of this video, but it’s worth the watch, or at least I think so! Enjoy!
