Awesome...

Once again, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be writing about God.

After all, it is our Lord's Day.  SONday!

Since I haven't always been able to get out and worship, I'll be heading out to the same church as I worshipped at, last week. 

You see, I got a message from the new pastor at that church.  This fellow, I knew years ago from Bible study where I used to worship.  He let me know that he and his wife were sorry they had missed me, last week and invited me to return, today.

At first, I wasn't sure if I would be able to, so I replied that I would try to make it.  However, now that I have sorted out some of my time schedule, I realize that I can attend their worship service, once again.

How awesome is that!  I'll be able to worship God, and see my friends, once again.

Talking about awesome.  My God is truly awesome. 

And, thinking about how awesome God is, I thought about something we sing from time to time at worship services.  It's a song written by Rich Mullins entitled, Awesome God.

Awesome God by Rich Mullins

When He rolls up His sleeves
He ain't just puttin' on the ritz
(our God is an awesome God)
There is thunder in His footsteps
And lightning in His fist
(our God is an awesome God)
Well, the Lord wasn't joking
When He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He shed his blood
His return is very close and so you better be believing
that our God is an awesome God


REFRAIN
Our God(our God) is an awesome God
He reigns(He reigns) from heaven above
With wisdom(with wisdom) pow'r and love
our God is an awesome God
(repeat refrain)

And when the sky was starless in the void of the night
(our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness and created the light
(our God is an awesome God)
Judgment and wrath he poured out on Sodom
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that
our God is an awesome God

Refrain x5

Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
(Our God is an awesome God)
(Our God is an awesome God
)
 
 
Yes, our God is truly awesome!  There is none like Him. 
 
Thinking about that, I thought of Jeremiah 10:6, "Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O Lord; thou art great, and thy name is great in might."
 
How blessed we are, to have a God who is in control.  How blessed we are, to know that there is none like Him. 
 
How blessed we are, that He loved us, so very much that He sent His only begotten Son, to die on a wooden cross... for the sin of the world... of all who will believe upon Him.
 
How great is this!  How great is He!
 
How thankful I am that He provided for my salvation.  And, for yours, also.
 
If you are not trusting in Jesus Christ, and in Him alone, for your salvation, I pray that you will come to Jesus, now.  Then, fall on your knees.  Repent.  And, pray to Him, who is the only one, who can save you... our Lord, Jesus Christ.
 
May you do this, if you haven't already done so.  And, love God with all your heart, soul, mind and spirit, just as He commanded us to do.
 
 
Until next time...
