Risen

After hearing Sovereign Grace Music for the first time a few years back, I quickly found myself with a new favorite in worship music. For the last several months I’ve been eagerly awaiting the newest release from Sovereign Grace, an album called Risen which was released yesterday. Risen is comprised of 13 songs celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Sovereign Grace Music is directed by Bob Kauflin, a talented composer, vocalist, and former member of the Christian group GLAD. In this promo video, Kauflin explains the inspiration behind Risen

For the next two weeks, you can download Risen for $5 at the
Sovereign Grace store. I’ve already bought my copy!

Jesus, Thank You

“Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!”

Psalm 105:1-2

Bob Kauflin of Sovereign Grace Music leads worship with the beautiful song, “Jesus, Thank You,” at the Next Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. It’s one of my favorites.

“Jesus, Thank You” was featured on the Sovereign Grace album Worship God Live. You can listen to and purchase the album HERE.

Jesus, Thank You

The mystery of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One, crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus, thank You
The Father’s wrath completely satisfied
Jesus, thank You
Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table
Jesus, thank You

By Your perfect sacrifice I’ve been brought near
Your enemy You’ve made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

Lover of my soul
I want to live for You

Glorying Only In the Cross

“But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”

Galatians 6:14

Three of my favorite things in one video–creative artwork, Sovereign Grace music, and John Piper’s preaching. Enjoy!

 The Cross-Centered Life

“The Gospel Song”

Holy God in love became
Perfect man to bear my blame
On the cross he took my sin
By his death I live again
