“I’m not a morning puppy”
Monday’s Music Moves Me
The theme for this week is heaven or hell. I choose heaven and I am going to choose inspirational/gospel/contemporary Christian music to express thoughts on heaven. Like most genres of music, there are multiple options in the inspirational category. One can choose country, southern gospel, contemporary Christian, hymns of the church, rock, or praise and worship and I happen to like a little of each. Regardless of the situation that I find myself in, I know that I can count on one name to call on. Christ has told me that He is the only way to heaven and He has assured me that He will always hear my voice and meet my needs. Sometimes I don’t know what I need, but He does, so Jesus is the “Only Name” I Need.
There are times when all of us feel lost, unloved, disrespected, or forgotten. The evangelist Charles Spurgeon reminds us that “The God who hung the stars and knows each of them by name is in no danger of forgetting about one of His children.” We can praise Him when all is well, we can run to Him when all seems a mess. God desires the fellowship of His children, so much so that He sent His only Son to die on a cross for the sins of this world. What have I done to deserve a love like this? Absolutely nothing!
So where can I find this love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness? It is found at the cross.
Scripture tells us that our bodies are temples created by God and we are to present them as a living sacrifice to Him. In other words, it is God’s will that His creation accept the sacrifice of Christ, seek His forgiveness, and receive the gift of eternal life. It is in my best interest to make Christ the “King of My Heart”.
Have a blessed week.
