“A Heart of Worship” by Matt Redman, what an awesome song. I have been listening to it a lot lately and one of the main statements made in this worship and praise song is, “It’s All About You Lord, It’s All About You!”
Isn’t that what Christianity it is about? About The Lord, about the life changing power of Jesus. The new life, the new beginnings that has been given to us when we came to the point in our life were we accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our savior, the the one that brought us out of bondage, out of fear, out of the life that we were living till we accepted Him.
It is a life changing experience, we are never the same and no it is not easy to walk in the way of the Lord, especially in a world that is bent on doing its own thing with "no help from God,” when the answer is God.
If there were ever a time that the world needed to see the reality of God, this is the time. The world needs to see it is all about Him, about the Lord, of allowing Him into our lives, to not only save us but to change us.
It is a day by day walk, we are being changed, molded by the Holy Spirit, as we allow the hurts, the anger, the bitterness to be removed and replaced with love, joy, peace, rest, an inner working of God. Man tries to change from the outside in and God changes us from the inside out.
Each day as we walk with the Lord, as we learn to come into His presence and we are still, as we yield ourselves to Him, then we become pliable in His hands so he can change us into a people with hope, with joy, with love, a peace and rest within, that in the midst of storms and battles of life, that we can rest in the Lord knowing that He will carry us through and others will see the rest within and hunger for that which they see.
To be a Christian means to be a follower of Christ and to be a follower of Christ means to walk in new life, in power and strength, because it is no longer I that liveth but Christ. We are to manifest the reality of who He is and what He can do in a time such as this.
