A Great Personal Cost

…You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. .. 1 Corinthians 6:19‭-‬20 ESV

One of our grandsons used to love hiding in a closet and quietly listening to us call his name. The longer we took to locate him the better he liked it! He was lost because in a moment of distraction we forgot about him.

“I was lost bur now I’m found” are the words of John Newtown’s hymn. But we were not lost because of Gods inattention. Instead we intentionally chose hiding over fellowship with Him. But God has chosen at great personal cost to find us. Our redemption meant that by His great love He chose the loss of His Son as the price of our return. Now that is a value and a cost far beyond anything else in earth or Heaven!

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.
