New song is up! Check it out here Joy Inexpressible
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here and I hope you’ll forgive me. With Covid-19 life has gotten a little crazy. As a worship pastor I’ve been facing the challenge of leading others in encouraging, instructive, and worshipful music even though we can’t meet or sing in person.
I’ve finally come to a point where I feel comfortable but I’m sure that won’t last long! Anyways, with a bit of free time I decided to record a little and post a new song.
This one comes from 1st Peter 1:1-9. What stuck me about this passage is the idea that the proof of our faith is more precious than anything in this world. If proof of our faith is so precious then the natural question to ask is “how do I get this proof”?
Peter’s answer is rather astounding. We find the proof of our faith through suffering and trials. We may want good times and we may try to hold onto comfortable lives but are these worth it if they don’t yield good fruit? Even though we might suffer now, that suffering is revealing the proof of our faith, which reminds us of a glory and goodness that are assured. May we find peace and hope in the promises of Christ even though we face trials in the here and now.
