“Because the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the Just, is satisfied,
To look on Him and pardon me.”
For us to be judging one another and behaving with fierceness and bitterness one towards another, when he who is the Searcher of all hearts, to whom we must all give an account, appears so remarkably present, is exceeding unsuitable. Our business at such a time should be at home, searching and condemning ourselves and taking heed to our own behavior.
While it is not your average worship song, I have grown to enjoy “Crazy” by Deluge.
I like the combination of this song and any hymn (see previous post – by the way, you can still get your free hymn CD from Soverign Grace) because it highlights the wide variety of styles of music one can employ to worship God. So, without further a due:
Yesterday I downloaded “How Sweet The Sound” from Covenant Life Church. This CD is a collection of hymns that their church will be learning over the next year. You can pay what you want for the CD or tell 5 friends about it to get the download. I opted for the tell-5-friends option.
So far I have really been enjoying the CD, but, I have particularly enjoyed the hymn “Before The Throne Of God Above.” The lyrics rock, and I really love the first verse!
Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea,
A great High Priest whose name is love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while in heav’n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.
If you’ve missed any of the Peasant Princess sermon series, in which we’ve walked through the Song of Songs, I hope it was not last Sunday. Why? Because we covered the most erotic, passionate, and debated section of the entire book, and possibly the entire Bible.
If you subscribe to the sermon feed this week, you can learn what the Dance of Mahanaim is, why a husband greatly enjoys seeing his wife perform it, and whether or not Song of Songs 7 is really talking about her belly button or something more interesting.

Yep, it was from this man that I learned to write with the skil and with (hmm… whats another antinom antonym for skill) that I currently righte with..
Plus, there are still a few weeks left in the year, so don’t miss out on the “weekly celebration, through photographs, of the beard” happining at A Year of Beard.
“Our greatest problem is that we esteem self more than we esteem God.”
