From the Inside Out

God created us to be whole being. And we need to engage God as whole being, not just cognitively through study, but responding to our study with worship.

Here’s my brief definition of worship: Encounter and Expression

Encountering God for what He is and Expressing back to Him what I have seen. Not so much ascribing, but describing Him.

Worship music (psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs) helps me do this.

Ephesians 5:18-21 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. (ESV)

So, here is another worship video from Hillsong. (Don’t hold me responsible for all their theology, and yes we should make sure that our worship songs are theologically correct.)

From The Inside Out
By: Hillsong United
Album: United We Stand (2006)

A thousand times I’ve failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
I’m caught in Your grace
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

Your will above all else
My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
In bringing You praise
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

In my heart and my soul
Lord I give You control
Consume me from the inside out
Lord let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out
