Wednesday February 19, 2020 – The blessing of music

Titus 2:13-14  13while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

I am so grateful that God has given us music – that He has given us songwriters and  composers who can create such wonderful songs.  Then there are the musicians and worship teams who lead us into worship.  They don’t worship for us, but enable us to
enter in and through these songs we are able to express the love within our hearts for our Lord.

There are so many special songs that we can sing.  This one so wonderfully focuses on Jesus and who He is for us.  He is the Holy and Anointed One, without whom we would be lost.  Today, let’s renew our focus upon on Him.  He is our Lord!  I’ve provided a link below to this song sung by Brian Doerksen.  Listen and worship as you read the words and focus upon Jesus.

Holy and Anointed One by John Barnett

Jesus, Jesus,
Holy and anointed One,

Jesus, Jesus,
Risen and exalted One,

Your name is like honey on my lips,
Your Spirit like water to my soul,
Your word is a lamp unto my feet,
Jesus I love You, I love You

Have a wonderful day!
