One of the blessings of the “COVID winter” is the existence in larger numbers of recorded worship services. Some of these are still going (see listing below) and we get a chance to experience worship for the first time, revisit an excellent message and/or hear wonderful music again.
A couple Sundays back we heard a wonderful scripture reading and accompanying message HERE from dear Pastor Lisa. She reminded us of the various healings in our world and the fact that the answer to prayer isn’t always “yes” in quite the fashion we hope. POWERFUL? Yes.
And then worship became even more energized with the song Give Me Jesus (HERE.) Excellent job by Ryan, the talented tenor, including this concluding line sung with incredible feeling…
“You may have all this world, give me Jesus!”
May we spur ourselves to all sorts of healings, filled with Jesus-like love and good works, fueled by the Spirit…
