Carl and Peggy Middleton found this song by Jesus Culture Music and shared it with me. I love the lyrics. You can see them all on the video.
Here I am
Arms Wide Open
Here I am
Hearts Wide Open
Shout out Your name
From the rooftops I proclaim
That I am Yours
I am Yours
Carl at GOD’S ANSWER is always Jesus cautions us about ignoring the knowledge that vengeance belongs to God and to God alone. There are several things that stand out to me that perhaps is not the focus of his discussion. First, he tells us that the Book of Hebrews, (author unknown), is the only book in the Bible that begins with the word “God.” He was speaking to Christian Jews who were tempted to leave the faith and go back to their Jewish culture.
Among the warnings coming from the author of Hebrews is this question which I’m paraphrasing: What do you think will happen to you if you trample on the blood of Jesus Christ, an unholy act and “a fearful thing.”
Those who believe in Jesus Christ are not likely to reject him and move on to something else, but we know some do, and I think of the cartoonists, and comedians and filmmakers who sometimes put such egregious acts and words, so carelessly and cavalierly in the public venue. I don’t know what is between them and the Almighty God, but it’s good to consider that they may have created an unholy thing and a fearful thing. Read Carl’s column this week. He is takes it much farther, much deeper,
