Archives For Emmanuel

Today’s Worship Wednesday song, entitled Psalm 23, comes from Shane & Shane. These guys have a passion to worship the Lord with their voices and their lives. They are considered modern day hymn writers and have some incredible songs that they have written and produced. You can find all of their music, as well as more, located here – Shane & Shane Music.

Today’s song is taken straight from scripture – Psalm 23! The first verse says,

The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want

In green pastures He makes me lie down

He restores my soul and leads me on for His Name for His great Name

Surely goodness surely mercy

Right beside me all my days

And I will dwell in Your house forever

And bless Your Holy Name

It is so reassuring to know that no matter what we may be going through, if we are a child of God, then He is always there with us. That is what his name means – Emmanuel – “God WITH us”!

O Come Emmanuel

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Christ came the first time to pay the ultimate price for all of our sins – His life. The Holy, Spotless, Lamb of God was our only hope.

With the way the world is today, this song takes on a whole new meaning. I think of the verse in Revelation 22:20 which says,

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

I am ready for HIM to come again! Are you? O come, O Come Emmanuel!
