This weekend, we continued in our series through Mark, called "Follow." We looked at Peter's denials of Jesus, and at what we can learn from him when we fall. It was a beautiful reminder of our need for grace in our own lives, and our need to give grace to others in our lives.
Here are our songs from this weekend:
"Every New Day" [Five Iron Frenzy]
"Faithful One" [Original]
"In Tenderness" [W. Spencer Walton, Adoniram J. Gordon, Nate Garvey]
"Your Great Name" [Michael Neale, Krissy Nordhoff]
"Forever Reign" [Reuben Morgan, Jason Ingram]
"Rejoice" [Dustin Kensrue, Stuart Townend]
This weekend was incredibly fun. We had a brass section on the team, and Ronnie, Haley, and David did a fantastic job with it. On top of that, Ronnie had suggested the Five Iron Frenzy song, "Every New Day" for this weekend, and this was a song that I have always wanted to try to play with a band. It was such a blast to play it together. The overarching theme for all of the singing this weekend was also the passage I shared to open the service:
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness." - Lamentations 3:22-23
It was beautiful to see how it all came together, and to share in the encouragement of the gospel this weekend. Even when we stumble and fall, He is faithful, and He will pick us back up. May we leave a legacy of the gospel of grace for others in our lives.
