The Reason

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 4:08 pm

Time for a belated Sunday catch-up, now that my computer is working again.  Firstly I thought the band did a great job with the setlist:

  • Let Your Kingdom Reign (Elevation)
  • One Day (Hillsong)
  • King of All Days (Hillsong)
  • ‘Til I See You (Hillsong)
  • Better Is One Day (Redman, arr. Kutless)

Somehow though, despite the full church, the great worship and the anointed preaching, I found myself sat out on my own during the third service feeling somewhat deflated.  I was tired, yes, but it was more a feeling of dissatisfaction.  We’d all put a lot of effort in to preparing and delivering a great service but we’d spent precious time worshipping You but somehow it didn’t feel enough.  What was it really for?  Then I went out at the end to start tidying away as someone was accepting Your salvation.  And that was it.

Only You can save. But if we, by following Your lead, created an atmosphere where hearts turn to You, where grace and mercy flow and where people are snatched from eternal torment to find eternal life, that’s it.  That’s the reason we do it.  May we, and particularly I,  never forget that.
