Just As I Am-I Come Broken

I have another great worship song to share with you that we’ll be singing in an upcoming week. Much of it will be very familiar because it is a familiar hymn. The hymn Just As I Am was written in 1835 by Charlotte Elliott, but probably became most familiar as the altar call song during Billy Graham crusades. It was during this song that Billy Graham himself took the physical steps to the altar and responded to Christ during a revival meeting led by Mordecai Ham. Partnered with this very familiar hymn is a new melody and lyric written by Travis Cottrell which complements the old as a prayer of commitment and recognition of God’s mercy and grace. 
 

We sing from the old…

 
Just as I am without one plea
But that Thy blood was shed for me
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee
O Lamb of God, I come, I come
 

To that we add…

 
I come broken to be mended
I come wounded to be healed
I come desperate to be rescued
I come empty to be filled
I come guilty to be pardoned
By the blood of Christ the Lamb
And I’m welcomed with open arms
Praise God, just as I am
 
Be blessed as you sing this song on your own as you become familiar with it as well as together as we sing as a church family.
 



Build My Life

Anyone that knows a bit or two about construction will tell you that the foundation is critical to get right. Any problem in the foundation only gets worse as it goes up in the construction. A small measurement out of square in the foundation becomes a significant error by the time you get to the roof. The foundation affects the structure, doors hanging properly, windows fitting in the openings. Virtually every part of a home is dependent on that foundation.
 
Our lives to have a foundation. What is your life built on? Our Savior, Jesus Christ? His worthiness and holiness? The One who saves, gives us breath, understanding, and His perfect love? 
 
Enjoy this beautiful song. We’ll be singing it in worship on Sunday!
 



All Praise to Him

This is a great new song released this past fall by Sovereign Grace Worship. It is based on a hymn written by Horatius Bonar, a pastor with the Free Church of Scotland in the 1800’s. Taking the same theme of attributing countless good things to our God and Father, this version from Sovereign Grace refreshes the text and style making it a very singable and memorable song. 

 
 


Grace and Peace

We are going to reintroduce a song we sang a few years ago as we move into this series in Romans. The first seven verses of Romans is a simple salutation of a letter, but there is something very important to notice how Paul puts great emphasis on the Gospel. Paul’s worth is in the Gospel. The validity of everything Paul has to say is in the Gospel. Grace and peace comes from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a simple yet amazing thing. 
 
I encourage you to listen to this song and think about the lyric. Think about the truth of the Gospel and the grace and peace it brings to our lives.
 
VERSE 1   
Grace and peace, oh how can this be
For lawbreakers and thieves
For the worthless, the least
You have said, that our judgment is death
For all eternity
Without hope, without rest
Oh, what an amazing mystery
What an amazing mystery
That Your grace has come to me
