The Morgan family is headed to a concert! Last time I blogged about going to a concert with the family, we were in the middle with a bunch of younger folks, praising Jesus, hanging with Russell Wilson and staying out way too late. Now, we’re at it again.
Next month we are seeing Rend Collective. An Irish worship band. I was listening to their new CD the other day, but on Sunday, as I was driving in before our service, one of their older songs popped into my head so I stopped praying for a bit, turned it on, and turned my prayers into praise…then, I did it again.
The song (Boldly I Approach) is a great reminder to me that we truly are blameless by His blood. We are not condemned, we have His grace, His perfect love, His sacrifice-freely given to us. Undeserved, but so thankful for the gift.
Below are some of the lyrics, I pray they hit home with you as they did me Sunday driving in to church.
By grace alone somehow I stand
Where even angels fear to tread
Invited by redeeming love
Before the throne of God above
He pulls me close with nail-scarred hands
Into His everlasting arms
When condemnation grips my heart
And Satan tempts me to despair
I hear the voice that scatters fear
The Great I Am the Lord is here
Oh praise the One who fights for me
And shields my soul eternally
Boldly I approach Your throne
Blameless now I'm running home
By Your blood I come
Welcomed as Your own
Into the arms of majesty
Behold the bright and risen Son
More beauty than this world has known
I'm face to face with Love Himself
His perfect spotless righteousness
A thousand years, a thousand tongues
Are not enough to sing His praise
