Music Monday: Fill This Place

This song from Red Rocks Worship has been out for a while, but recently they posted some quarantine sessions on YouTube. I love the lyrics and I love the driving drum line. As an amateur drummer, I can appreciate.

It is unfortunate that most churches right now cannot meet with a full house because of government mandates for indoor capacity and the need for social distancing. However, God has inspired many churches to do great things to continue to get out the gospel message even though we are in a pandemic. There is a church next to my neighborhood that is doing a drive-in church. Others are utilizing technologies like Facebook Live to do online church.

God is doing amazing things to advance the gospel. People need to hear the good news that Christ died for our sins and rose again so that we could follow in His footsteps. If we can’t “fill this place” with people right now, let us pray that the Spirit of God will fill our hearts, fill our homes and fill our churches. Remember, the church is not a building, but the body of believers that is advancing Christ in our world.

“Fill This Place”, written by Jake Espy & Jerrica Matrone, performed by Red Rocks Worship

It starts turning into mostly spontaneous stuff after 4:00, but the song itself is so solid. It reminds me of Kari Jobe’s song “Forever” in tone, lyrics and melody. I hope it gives you hope for the return of our Lord.

I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, but I am going to tell you what the Bible has to say about leaders, both within and outside the church.

Music Monday: Christ Is Risen

I haven’t written anything in a long time–mostly because of lack of discipline and partly because the world is already so very full of voices.

I thought maybe it was time to pick the discipline back up again, so here I am. It’s Monday, and I thought I would start with this recent performance at Bethel Church.

“Christ is Risen”, written by Rheva Henry, performed by Hannah Waters at Bethel Church

It starts turning into mostly spontaneous stuff after 4:00, but the song itself is so solid. It reminds me of Kari Jobe’s song “Forever” in tone, lyrics and melody. I hope it gives you hope for the return of our Lord.
