Today’s Worship Wednesday song takes us back to 2012 as the Gaither Vocal Band sings “I Believe In A Hill Called Mount Calvary”.

The following excerpt is from Wikipedia:

CalvaryGolgotha, and also Gagulta (Aramaicܓܓܘܠܬܐ‎‎), was, according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus was said to have been crucified.[1]Golgotha(s) (GreekΓολγοθᾶς) is the Greek transcription in the New Testament of the Aramaic term Gagultâ. The Bible translates the term to mean place of [the] skull, which in Greek is Κρανίου Τόπος (Kraníou Tópos), and in Latin is Calvariæ Locus, from which the English word Calvary is derived.

As you go through your day, don’t forget what was done for you on the cross at Calvary!

Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe.

Sin has left a crimson stain; He washed it white as snow!

I love acapella music! There is nothing quite like the human voice and when it comes together like our song today – it is powerful!

My niece started her freshman year at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee just a few days ago and so I thought it would be a great opportunity to hear today’s Worship Wednesday song from one of their groups.

I hope you enjoy “No Longer Slaves” from The Voices of Lee!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from a combination of two things: 1) I have been reading through a book entitled “Grace Is Greater” by Kyle Idleman and 2) I love just about any song that Laura Story sings.

Because of this combination, today’s Worship Wednesday song is “Grace” by Laura Story.

God’s grace is an amazing thing. We sing about it in the church. We read about it in the Bible. But it is not until we truly experience God’s grace that it becomes real. Kyle Idleman said this about experiencing grace:

God’s grace is compelling when explained but irresistible when experienced.

The chorus to this songs goes like this:

“I ask you how many times will you pick me up when I keep on letting you down. And each time I will fall short of your glory. How far will forgiveness abound? And you answer my child, ‘I love you’. And as long as your seeking my face you’ll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace.”

Idleman goes on to say in his book that:

Our ability to appreciate grace is in direct correlation to the degree to which we acknowledge our need for it. The more I recognize the ugliness of my sin, the more I can appreciate the beauty of God’s grace”.

I hope and pray that we will truly experience the grace of God and that we will understand our deep need for a Savior!

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me!

I am sure that we have all heard these verses (even if you aren’t a follower of Jesus) at some point in our lives. Psalm 23 says,

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell[f] in the house of the Lord forever.

Today’s Worship Wednesday song is “You Are My Shepherd” by Tricia Brock. It is a beautiful reminder of the words from Psalm 100:3,

Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

I hope you enjoy “You Are My Shepherd”!
