Archives For Keith & Kristin Getty

One of the things that I have focused on for the past several years at my church is to introduce new music that is grounded in God’s Word. That just makes sense, but there are some songs that the church has sung for years that are neither grounded nor rooted in scripture.

We should be singing biblical songs! Keith Getty made this statement several years ago at a conference I attended. He said, “We should sing our theology”. He is absolutely correct. We should sing what we believe.

I would like to challege every worship pastor, music director or anyone else that leads music to really look at the words and make sure that what you are leading and singing is based on scripture.

One such song that is grounded is today’s Worship Wednesday song entitled “Yet Not I But Through Christ in Me”. This song was written in 2018 by CityAlight. I hope you enjoy and worship Him today!

[Verse 1]
What gift of grace is Jesus, my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

[Chorus 1]
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing: All is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

[Verse 2]
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

[Chorus 2]
To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley, He will lead
Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

[Verse 3]
No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

I am excited to introduce this song to my church in the near future!

In 2017, God allowed my wife and I to attend a conference called The SING! Conference, sponsored by Keith & Kristin Getty. It was held in Nashville, Tennessee, and the focus of the conference was to encourage pastors and music directors to engage the church to sing more for the glory of God!

We were not able to attend last year’s conference but I just recently came across a video of one of the speakers, David Platt, and wanted to share it with you. Platt said this,

God blesses his people for the sake of His praise among all people.

You and I are prone to disconnect God’s blessing in our lives from God’s purpose for our lives.

So, what is the purpose of worship? What is YOUR purpose of worship and does it match up with GOD’s purpose for worship?

Take a moment and watch the following video clip of David Platt talking about God’s purpose for worship!


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. People & families will be gathering around a table all over the world to celebrate this day that is set aside to “Give Thanks”.

To some, it is just a day to eat as much turkey, ham, and dressing as possible. A day to sit and watch football. A day off work or out of school.

To others, it is a day where they are truly grateful for what they have and from whom all that they have has been given.

So, because of Thanksgiving, I wanted to make today’s Worship Wednesday song “My Heart Is Filled with Thankfulness” from Keith & Kristen Getty.

I hope tomorrow (and all year-long) is filled with thanks & praise to our God above. I hope you enjoy!

It has been a little over a month since I posted a Worship Wednesday song, and for that I am sorry. I was off for several weeks and getting ready for that was just crazy.

So, here we go!

Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Keith & Kristin Getty (modern-day hymn writers) entitled “The Lord Is My Salvation”. In the book of Psalm we read:

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2

We must understand that without the grace of God, we are nothing more than sinful, depraved sinner destined for an eternity in hell.

BUT GOD! (I love these two words!!!!!!)

This song starts out with these words:

The grace of God has reached for me. And pulled me from the raging sea, and I am safe on this solid ground – The Lord is my salvation!

The song builds to the tag with the words:

Glory be to God the Father, glory be to God the Son, glory be to God the Spirit, the Lord is my salvation!

I hope you find this song encouraging today and it causes us to understand a little more clearly that without HIM we are nothing! He is our God, our Sustainer, our Rock, our Redeemer, our Savior, our Provider, our Healer – and HE is our SALVATION!
