ONE WAY

Acts 4:12  King James Version (KJV)
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Apostle Simon Peter   33 A.D.

The Cure
Unspoken
We’re all related, brothers and strangers
The king and the beggar bleed the same
We’ve all got a sickness, a terminal condition
We medicate it but the pain won’t go away
See the eyes of a million faces
Looking for it in a million places
Only one can save us, Jesus
You are the cure
Everybody’s searching for it
Everybody’s reaching out
Trying to grab a hold of something real
You are the cure
Only you can satisfy us
Fill up the void inside us
Never been a heart you couldn’t heal
You are the cure
You are the doctor, healer and father
To the orphan without a home
We fell into darkness, lost till you found us
You are the remedy we’re looking for
You are the cure
Everybody’s searching for it
Everybody’s reaching out
Trying to grab a hold of something real
You are…

For King & Country ~ O God Forgive Us

Praise the Lord for the lyrics and music from this well known contemporary Christian music group.  The words seek the Lord’s forgiveness for our sins: for His forgiveness of our ineptness, our lack of faith and obedience, and for our continual need for repentance and a contrite heart:

O God Forgive Us
​for KING & COUNTRY

Produced by Seth Mosley
Album RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG.

O God Forgive Us Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We’ve prayed the prayer with no reply
Words float off into the night
Couldn’t cut our doubt with the sharpest knife
O, O God forgive us
Silence isn’t comfortable
We want drive through peace and instant hope
Our shallow faith it has left us broke
O, O God forgive us
O, O God forgive us

[Chorus]
A slave to our uncertainty
Help us with our unbelief
O, O God forgive us

[Verse 2]
Young and old, black and white
We’re rich and poor, there’s no divide
Hear the mighty, hear the powerless, singing
O, O God forgive us
O, O God forgive us

[Chorus]
A slave to our uncertainty
Help us with our unbelief
O, O God forgive us

 

[Bridge]
With our white flag sailing in the night
Eyes pointed to the sky
Hands up and open wide, open wide
With our white flag sailing in the night
Eyes pointed to the sky
Hands up and open wide, open wide
With our white flag sailing in the night
Eyes pointed to the sky
Hands up and open wide, open wide
With our white flag sailing in the night
Eyes pointed to the sky
Hands up and open wide, open wide

[Chorus]
O, O God forgive us
A slave to our uncertainty
Help us with our unbelief
O, O God forgive us

[Outro]
Run wild. To risk everything. To hold nothing back. To lay it all on the line: your reputation, your success, your comfort. It’s that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free. It’s not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want, but rather it’s living in course with the Author of humanity and finding freedom by connecting with the Creator who conceived you.  Let the light flood into your eyes for the first time. Feeling the blood course through your veins, finding the truest version of yourself by knowing the one who knows you even better than you know yourself. Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love we all perish. Because the earth and the stars can and will pass away, but love, love will always remain

 

 

 

 

Matthew West ~ Broken Things

Broken Things

If grace is a kingdom
I’ve stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all of the mistakes I’ve made
But I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown?”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring You so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I am all Yours

The pages of history they tell me it’s true
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use
It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
The misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside

Jeremy Camp – A Ministry Built On Personal Loss, Brokenness, And Ultimate Strength From The Lord

Jeremy Camp’s life was filled with suffering, prior to the ministry that has placed him in the public eye across the globe.  His wife Melissa died on February 5, 2001.  That was the springboard for his music ever since.  Now one can sense pain and suffering as a theme in all of his music, yet he finds his strength in the Lord.  His music is an autobiography.  His mere presence on videos, pictures, appearances and songs connotes one who is like his Savior – “a Man of sorrows.”   …or like Jeremiah, the weeping prophet.  Underlying his melancholy exterior, however, is a total inner peace and trust in his Lord.  He is a marvelous reflection of our suffering Savior and the Lamb of God.  Key the following link for his story:

Jeremy Camp: Melissa’s Dying Wish

Melissa Camp’s Tribute Page
Interview: I Still Believe
Audra Smith Haney – 700 Club Producer

Award-winning musician, Jeremy Camp leads worship all over the world every year. Jeremy says his success was born out of a life filled with personal suffering. It began with his marriage to Melissa, a marriage Jeremy entered into knowing that the woman he loved was dying.
Jeremy remembers the day he met Melissa. He was leading worship for a church group in San Diego.
“I was singing and I looked up, and there was Melissa with her hands raised up so high. You could tell she was really worshipping Jesus,” remembers Jeremy. “I kind of joke around [now] and say, ‘I hit the wrong chords and sang a little flat.’ ”
After only a few months of dating, Jeremy was in love.
“I said, Melissa, I need to tell you something, ‘I love you.’ But she said, ‘I don’t feel the same way.’ ”
However a few months later, Jeremy received a call from Melissa, who gave him some devastating news. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.”
“I remember walking into the hospital, and she had just found out she had cancer, and she was smiling. I was like, ‘Why is she smiling?’ ”
“She [Melissa] said, ‘I am doing okay, because I have been thinking, if I were to die from this cancer, if one person were to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, it would all be worth it.’ ”
“I was driving home that night, and I was crying, and all these emotions were coming up again. I said, ‘Lord, if she tells me she loves me, I will marry her.’ I don’t even know why I said it. It was just God preparing my heart.”
Jeremy remembers, “So, about two weeks later, I got a phone call. She [Melissa] said, ‘I need to talk to you.’ She said, ‘I know now why God wanted it to be just me and Him because He wanted to prepare me for this. But I have been praying for you for a long time, and I wanted to let you know, ‘I love you.’ ”
“It was like, we both just knew. We just knew,” says Jeremy.
Five months later, Jeremy and Melissa wed. However, during their honeymoon, Melissa started having serious stomach pains.
“So, we got back to the doctor when the honeymoon was over and the doctors pulled me aside. They had done some tests on her. They said, ‘The cancer is back.’ So I was like, ‘What can we do?’ There is nothing else we can do. It is all over her body. The doctor told Melissa she had months, maybe weeks, to live.”
“I remember her [Melissa] saying, ‘Jeremy I just want to worship the Lord right now.’ So, of course, I would pull the guitar out. It’s those moments, and we had more of those moments, where it’s not about our circumstances when we worship the Lord. He is worthy to be praised no matter what we are going through.”
On February 5, 2001, at 21-years-old, Melissa died.
“I was on my knees and I remember her sister saying, ‘She is with Jesus now.’ A grief fell over me that I can’t describe. The weight of her suffering is over, but the grief is she’s gone. We always had worship music playing in the background. I remember the Lord speaking into my heart and saying, ‘Jeremy, I want you to stand up and worship me.’ I remember standing up and raising my hands.”
“That was such a good act of obedience for me, just saying, ‘Lord, I don’t want to do this, but I know this is why I am here.’ ”
“I remember not wanting to ask God, ‘Why,’ but I finally did, and God always spoke to me. He said, ‘Jeremy, I don’t always want you to know why, because I want you to have a testimony of walking by faith.’ And I had written that song previously on our honeymoon, Walk By Faith.”
“And I look at these songs that come from it, Walk by Faith and I Still Believe. I wrote two weeks after she went to be with the Lord,” says Jeremy. “I have seen story after story of God using this whole thing to show His faithfulness to encourage people. That blows my mind realizing that Melissa made that statement, that if even one person accepts Christ. I hear thousands and thousands of stories. I remember being on my face after that realization and God said, ‘Jeremy, ‘Remember.’ ”
“When I get distracted, when I lose sight of what is going on, God will say, ‘Look at how many thousands!’ ”
Today, Jeremy is re-married and his thriving ministry is shared with his new wife, recording artist Adrienne Camp.
“From that, you have the ministry of God bringing us together — Adrienne and I, and what we have together to minister to people. And from that, two beautiful girls, who have changed my life radically. My encouragement… .do not lose heart, because our affliction is just momentary and what He is preparing for us, what He has in store for us, it will blow us away.”
“Imagine no more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain… and one day we will forever be with Jesus,” he says.

Matt Maher ~ Because He Lives

Jesus Christ is the ground of all hope, and the Author of salvation.  With Him, there is an endless hope, without Him there is a hopeless end.  Amen and amen.  “If you meet me and forget me, you have lost nothing.  But if you meet Messiah Jesus and forget Him, you have lost everything.”

 

 

Following is a powerful and miraculous testimony of one who Christ saved.  He listened to this song and then wrote this under comments:

“For 40 years I ran away from God, I hated him, I hated Christians. Because of that, I turned into a bitter, hateful man, drove my wife away, hurt my family, involved in cheating, lying and loathed and hated myself and even started contemplating suicide, again. 5 days ago, God drew me back into his waiting arms and I asked God to forgive me, and Jesus to come into my heart. In one second, 40 years worth of all that pain went away. Thank you God for being you and forgiving me. A true miracle. To those who are like I was, all I can say is that God loves you, and I know how you feel.”
