Uh, this was supposed to be posted on Monday.*
I set the timer for the post, but I messed it up.
Anyway, I’ve got some cool stuff to share with you briefly this week. First, I just got done reading the book Rocketmen. It’s by Craig Morgan. It’s a detailed account of the Apollo 11 mission, which sent men to the moon. I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It was super good! Secondly, I want to share with you my favorite hymn ever. I get to play drums this week at church, and we are playing this song. I’m also going to have this song performed at my wedding by some friends. That song is In Christ Alone.
Check out some of the lyrics:
In Christ alone, my hope is found. He is my light, my strength, my song.
This cornerstone, this solid ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
It’s such a beautiful hymn. One of the things it does a great job of is putting the focus on the utmost holiness and greatness of God. Why does that matter?
It’s a timely hymn. 2020 was wild: we talked about that here. 2021 is full of hope, but it’s also full of anxiousness. I have always loved this hymn because every line is a reminder of who God is. In Christ alone, our hope is found. I love the final words:
And as he stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me. For I am his, and he is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ.
That’s what we say here: the battle is already won. Live this week remembering that.
