Ezekiel and Mark

April 7, 2014

Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, O my people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. (Ezekiel 37:12)
      Lord Jesus, speak your words of life to your church and bring the spiritually dead back to life.

Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up from your graves. (Ezekiel 37:13)
      Jesus, please help us by your deeds to know you as Lord and God.

I will put my Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD.’ “ (Ezekiel 37:14)
      Lord Jesus Christ, put your Holy Spirit in us so that we may live and come into that good in heritance you have prepared for us. Help us to know what you have spoken you have done.

A word received: I AM your strength. Keep turning to me.

Then he took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when he had taken him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever receives one of these little children in my name receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” (Mark 9:36-37)
      Holy Spirit, please help us receive every child you send us.

      Jesus, help us receive you as we show forth your love to the children you send us.

      Father, you are a father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5a); help us daily show forth your love to your children. Thank you.

Music for Lent & Holy Week: Chris Tomlin – At the Cross (Love Ran Red) [Brand New!]

April 7, 2014

The excellent worship resource site, Worship Together, is currently featuring a brand new song by Chris Tomlin, which he sang at the Passion 2014 conference – it’s a great modern hymn / worship song for Holy Week & Good Friday.

It’s At the Cross (Love Ran Red)

(Clicking on the link will give you access to free streaming of this song, and members of the site can get a free Lead Sheet with the chords).  This song is not yet available for purchase anywhere.  I believe it’s due to be released on the new Passion album on April 29.

Verse 1
There’s a place where mercy  reigns
And never dies
There’s a place where streams of grace
Flow deep and  wide
Where all the love I’ve ever found
Comes like a flood, comes flowing down

Chorus
At the cross, at the cross
I surrender my life
I’m in awe of You
I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
And my sin washed white
I owe all to You
I owe all to You, Jesus

Verse 2
There’s a place where sin and shame
Are powerless
And there my heart has peace with God
And forgiveness
Where all the love I’ve ever found
Comes like a flood, comes flowing down

Bridge
Here my hope is found
Here on holy ground
Here I bow down
Here  I bow down
Here arms open wide
Here You save my life
Here I bow down
Here I bow down

— by Chris Tomlin , Matt Redman , Jonas Myrin , Matt Armstrong , Ed Cash

The Worship Together site also has more free lead sheets for Easter songs by contemporary artists.
