Worship and Praise Sunday, God of Justice by Tim Hughes

Wow, it has been a full week since I posted last.  It has been a long and busy week, I guess. Anyways...

Today, for worship and praise Sunday I want to share a song with you that talks about what the mission of our church is all about.  It is an awesome song about doing justice, showing mercy and walking humbly with our God. This is taken from Micah 6:8 which says:
"He has showed you, O man, what is good. 
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy 
and to walk humbly with your God."

God Of Justice 
by Tim Hughes

God of Justice, Saviour to all
Came to rescue the weak and the poor
Chose to serve and not be served

Jesus, You have called us
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

We must go live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward keep us from just singing
Move us into action
We must go

To act justly everyday
Loving mercy in everyway
Walking humbly before You God

You have shown us, what You require
Freely we've received
Now freely we will give

Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out Lord

This song really touches my heart becasue I love our church and what it is all about.  We attend a church that truly GETS what we are to be about in this life.  About doing justice and loving mercy all while we are walking humbly with God.

I could make this a very long post focused around our church and why we  love being a part of it, how it is doing justice and showing mercy and walking humbly, and how God has showered blessing after blessing upon it but I will save that for another post.  For now, enjoy this song and be blessed in the LORD!
