Encouraging word from Peggy Hall — unbothered by the haters and shamers!
“I encourage people to not care what other people think. It doesn’t matter what other people think. It only matters what God thinks. … It only matters what rings true for you.”
Peggy loves and quotes Psalm 27:
The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
Best 6-minute summary I’ve ever seen. George nails it!
SHOULD WE FORGIVE IF THEY DON’T REPENT?
Some Christians say that if a brother does not repent, if they don’t come back to say they are sorry, we should not forgive them. They use the passage when Jesus said “Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.” (Matthew 18:15)
Dear brothers and sisters, a true Christian is a dead man to the world. They don’t keep record of wrong, they don’t care about their pride and their ego. They don’t care about being treated unjustly because they are dead to this world.
The passage that speaks about confronting our brother who sins against us in Matthew 18 is about a fellowship setting. If we are in fellowship together as brothers and sisters, we need to brings everything out into the open. We need to rebuke, correct each other but IN LOVE. This is because we need to stay in one accord and to walk together, we need to agree together.
However that doesn’t mean that we should not forgive anyone who has wronged us even if they don’t repent, not only Christians but also unbelievers.
When Jesus was on the cross, He said: FORGIVE THEM because they know not what they do. The people who crucified Him did not repent prior to Jesus saying that. The same with Stephen when he was being stoned, he said: “don’t lay this to their charge”.
There is no place for resentment in the heart of a Christian. We need to forgive everyone and for anything. We need to trust Jesus to deliver righteous judgment when we will stand before Him. He will repay, it is not up to us to repay.
This seems to be from this concert, the last song, which was live At Bayside Church, Roseville, CA. I was disappointed by the lack of reverence in this concert, the K-LOVE ladies and Brewster’s jokes. It wasn’t very anointed, but this is the only live performance I can find of Brewster doing this song.
Oh Lord my God in You I put my trust Oh Lord my God in You I put my hope Oh Lord my God in You I put my trust Oh Lord my God in You I put my hope
In You In You I find my peace In You In You I find my strength In You I live and move and breathe Let everything I say and do Be founded by my faith in You I lift up holy hands and sing Let the praises ring!
Oh Lord my God to You I give my hands Oh Lord my God to You I give my feet Oh Lord my God to You I give my everything Oh Lord my God to You I give my life
I just found this incredible song yesterday, Christmas day 2019, surprised and disappointed that it’s been out for years, as I love this complex and powerful Trans-Siberian Orchestra style, and Jeff Beck tones!
“Miraculum” is an amazing three-movement instrumental incorporating these five songs in what appears to me to mainly be in this order until the complicated ending: “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “We Three Kings,” “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night.”
The photographer shot it with a Canon 6D with 70-200mm f2.8L lens, zoomed to 200mm, using the internal mic, and with tired arms, he says — difficult to hold the telephoto steady.
How can an acoustic version come even close to Brewster’s amazing electric masterpiece?
Though definitely not as awe inspiring and moving to me, some may less aggressive approach. Delightful is the quiet, pin-drop section in the center, followed by a majestic ending; though, not reaching the heights of the electric version.
