Seeing What Life Is About - Enjoying The Grace of God

Yesterday evening, I went to a NewFrontiers Regional Celebration, put on by the Beacon Church, Camberley.

It was a wonderful and stirring time of worshipping the God who is Father, Son and Spirit and hearing of and praying for missionary endeavours around the world.

One of the songs we sang is a favourite of mine, but I hadn't sung it in a while:

There was a time in my life when I was suspicious of all this emotionalism. And true, it's not about how much you jump up and down at a Christian meeting that counts, but the obedience that comes from faith in Jesus Christ.

Nevertheless, if the good news of Jesus produces nothing in you that manifests itself in any kind of spontaneous, gratuitous holy exuberance, then what good news have you received? Not the true good news, that's for sure!
