Master There’s Still More

This is Easter Sunday – the day that we Christians base our entire faith upon. Some of us are having some big dinners together with family and the scene in Bethany, where they were honoring Jesus with a feast is very much like that. John’s gospel tells us that his disciples and closest friends were all there. Everyone was talking and enjoying the great food when Mary quietly entered. At first no one noticed her, but then she took an alabaster jar filled with perfumed oil, broke it open and began to pour the oil on the head of Jesus. The Bible says that fragrance filled the air and one by one people fell silent and turned their heads to see what was going on. John tells us that Mary anointed the feet of Jesus while in Matthew says she poured it on His head. In this song which I wrote for an Easter play a few years ago I imagine that she did both, because after pouring some on the head of Jesus, she saw that she still had more. Do you still have more for the Master this Easter? It doesn’t matter what others say or think. he is quietly waiting for us to share all we have, even if it seems a waste to others. Not one drop of the fragrance of our worship will be too much for Him!

If you would like to use my song, please just let me know. I will be glad to send you song sheets and give permission to use it without charge. You can contact me at Revpete51@gmail.com – God bless and Happy Easter all!

Celebrating God’s Greatness

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness. Psalm 29:2 ESV

I admit it that the word “Ascribe” in this Psalm is a struggle to grasp. The King James says “give to the Lord” which doesn’t help much either. After all how can we give God something He already has and we do not possess? But when we gather as the body of Christ and worship together a miracle comes to pass. God receives in our praises the glory He already has as we celebrate. Though we can not make God any greater He comes in the splendor of His holiness when we worship. He becomes greater in us together as His people. One family…one church…the Bride of Jesus Christ!

I hope you love this video as much as I did. I have not heard “Awesome God” in quite a while and I love Michael W Smith bringing together so many people to “Ascribe” to the Lord the glory due His name!

Irish Blessing

In these days of social distancing we’ve been blessed with many different videos created separately and blended in studio. This one from Ireland is definitely unique and shares the best not only of Ireland but of every people everywhere who through the blood of Jesus are made as one. Have a blessed day.
