Draw Me Nearer

Draw Me Nearer

The song "Draw Me Nearer" has been on my mind a lot as the youth choir has been preparing for choir tour. I think the truths in this song are VITAL for the choir and team as they leave on tour and also for our congregation as we come to worship each week. The second stanza of the song is one of the most challenging of the song. Consecrate me now to Thy service Lord by the power of grace divine. Let my soul look up with a steady hope and my will be lost in Thine. CHORUS: Draw me nearer, … [Read more...]

Stand Firm in Him!

Man Standing

Wow!  I'm awed by what God does in corporate worship! Of course God uses individuals to draw our attention towards Him in worship, but true Worship only occurs when we encounter the tug of His Spirit on our hearts. Still again it's more than that. It's more than a feeling or an emotion, although our emotions play a part. It's emotion only, if we come together to only have a good "cry" or exciting  "pep rally" and then go home unchanged.
