Listen to “Never Gonna Stop Singing” by Jesus Culture; Featuring Kim Walker Smith
Two Jesus Culture songs in a row? Yep! Usually I try to mix it up, because I listen to so many artists and styles during my personal praise and worship time, but this is what my heart is stuck on right now.
One of my favorite things to do during my praise time is to just celebrate my God; my Jesus! And this song is wonderful for helping with that!!!
Why celebrate God?
God became flesh, and lived as we do in this world of sin. Then He willingly became the atoning sacrifice for our sins. And not just any sacrifice; the last sacrifice that the human race will ever need to save us from our own sins. He was pure and holy. He was blameless, and yet he suffered our consequence.
And it wasn’t just a sacrifice that He made of Himself… Jesus conquered the grave! He died and in three days rose again; and He walked the earth revealing Himself before He ascended to heaven. Jesus is ALIVE and He is watching over you and me! I honestly can’t fully comprehend what He has done for me; that He would save my life. I am beyond grateful!
And not only is it mind-blowing what He did on a universal scale for our salvation, but He continues to save us each day. I don’t mean that we need to accept Him everyday to be saved. I mean that although we have Him in our hearts, we are still imperfect people who make mistakes. And yet, He isn’t saying, “What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you just get it right? Straighten up, or you’re going to get it! Stop messing up, or I’m done with you.” No, He’s with us every step of the way; whichever way we choose to take. He wants to help us take the right path and succeed. And when we mess up, He wants to help redirect us. He wants to forgive us and help us move forward and closer to Him!
Isn’t this worth celebrating!? Don’t you just want to praise Him and give Him all the joyful thanks that you have inside? It make me sing and shout praise and thanksgiving! I just dance around and rejoice, because even though I’m not perfect, He still loves me! And though I was born a sinner; that’s not how He sees me! He sees a redeemed daughter of the King Jesus, and He loves me the very best way a father can love their child. I will never stop singing His praise!!!
Colossians 1:12-14 …and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you 12 to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Jesus, You are amazing! I praise You and thank You for saving my life, and setting me free! Thank You for not only setting me free, but being with me wherever I go. You are good, wonderful, beautiful, selfless, and inspiring! I love You with all my heart, and I sing for joy for Your glory! You alone are worthy of the praise that comes from my heart! I sing to You, Jesus, my Salvation!!! Amen
