2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” This is the key verse from Chad‘s sermon this week the focus of our music set will be on the confidence (strength) we can have in the Lord through the Gospel. I love this verse because it emphasis that our strength is not our own but, it comes from God. With this in mind, I think that we should celebrate that God is on our side and He is offering His power, love, and self-discipline to each of us. My encouragment for our church this Sunday (and beyond) is that we remember and take hold of the gift God has given us in these attributes. Some of the song set has been picked as a reminder and reflection of the power that comes from God to the Christian and how we can and ought to live strong lives for Him. Other songs speak of our ability to rely on God when we feel like we can’t go further and of the grace of Jesus that allowed for us to enter into a relationship with God in the first place.
We are doing the song Where My Feet May Fail this week. It will be new to many of you. You can listen to it by playing the video below.
