A Flower that Never Fades


The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever  Isaiah 40:8

At the moment of her selection Esther was the most beautiful young woman that the king could find in all his domain. She was chosen to be queen and to live in his palace. Esther received the finest clothes, the most servants and the sweetest perfumes of any lady in Persia. But her true loveliness had little to do with her hair, her figure or her face. What still shines about Esther in the pages of the Bible is her character. Esther chose to be an intercessor for her people to the king. She willingly faced death, dishonor and failure because she trusted God. Her physical beauty is today remembered only in words but she retains forever a beauty that will last forever!

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away              1 Peter 5:4

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
