Encouragement – My God Will Finish in Me – What He Started

What an encouragement, God will finish what He started in us.

Based on Philippians 1:6 this new song is a great encouragement to us passing through some rough times looking at ourselves and wondering what is going on. Philippians 1:6 is: Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ,

The lyrics written by Drew Haninger are:

My God will complete in me
My God will complete in me
What He has begun will finish
My God will complete in me

Encouragement, Encouragement
My God will complete in me, in me
Encouragement, Encouragement
My God will complete in me, in me

My God will complete in me
My God will complete in me
What He has begun will finish
My God will complete in me

Finish in me, oh Finish in me
My God will complete in me, in me
Encouragement, Encouragement
My God will complete in me, in me

God hath begun, God hath begun
God hath begun a good work in me
Confident, so confident
My God will complete in me

God is working, God is working
Working in me to will and do
Working in me, working in me
His good pleasure in me

Love Divine All Loves Excelling – Church Hymn

A love song and story about God’s love and care. This traditional hymn called “Love Divine All Loves Excelling ” was written by Charles Wesley, and was first published in 1747.

The tune was first used or published in 1830. Music arrangement and vocals by Julie Gaulke, see her web site at: JulieGaulkeMusic.com

The Lyrics are:

Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of Heav’n to earth come down;
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling;
All Thy faithful mercies crown!
Jesus, Thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love Thou art;
Visit us with Thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit
Into every troubled breast!
Let us all in Thee inherit;
Let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Come, Almighty to deliver,
Let us all Thy life receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Nevermore Thy temples leave.
Thee we would be always blessing
Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,
Glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish, then, Thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee;
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in Heav’n we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

The Bible the Word of God is Living – Church Hymn

A beautiful song about “The Bible, the Word of God is Living”. This Hymn is based on Hebrews 4:12.

Sometimes we fail to realize how living and powerful the words of the Bible are. Hebrews 4:12 is “For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

The Lyrics are:

Title: The Bible, the Word of God is living

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
The Word is sharper, sharper
God knows everything, you cannot hide

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
The Word divides soul and spirit
soul and spirit, what is me and what is God

(bridge)

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
Every Word of God is living and powerful
God knows everything

The Word is living
The Word is living

The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He who died
Heaven’s gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay
Close beside me all the way;
He’s prepared a home for me
and some day His face I’ll see

Charles Spurgeon – God is the God of Love

This is a little background on the song “God is the God of Love

In writing the Christian song, I was trying to express the fact of God’s love as mentioned in John 3:16 (God so loved the world that He gave His Son) and the verses in 1 John about “God is Love”. I was also trying to show the points that are unique and district about Christianity above all other religions. One point that sets Christianity apart is God is the God of love. God is not after us to punish us. Thats why He sent his Son so that in believing in Him we could have eternal life.

So I came us with the phrase “God is the God of Love”. Yet I wondered if anyone else used this phrase. In doing a search I found it not in songs but in a sermon from Charles Spurgeon.

… we think of what God is. …why art thou at enmity with God? God is the God of love; he is kind to his creatures; … Do you hate God because he loves you?  — Charles Spurgeon

So Spurgeon also used this phrase that I came up with.

So the phrase “God is the God of Love” is a great descriptive set of words to describe this aspect of God.  Now don’t forget God is also just, so be sure you believe in Jesus so you can fully receive and appreciate all God can do for you.  Us sinners can easily come to God through His Son Jesus Christ. God has made a way for us fallen sinful imperfect humans to accept from God Eternal Life. So again do your part to get all God can give you, you just need to believe in Jesus.

The song text is:

In the beginning is the God of love
In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.
God then created man in His image for His purpose and glory.

God is the God of love
Man disobeyed God which brought in sin,
but God who loved the world sent His son, Jesus Christ who is God became man.

God is the God of love
He died on the cross for man’s sins,
and was resurrected from the dead.
Jesus gives eternal life to all those who believe in Him.

God is the God of Love
God is the God of Love
God is the God of Love
