Titus 2:11-13

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

Glimpsing Heaven through Song

Music is on my mind and in my mouth today.  Travis purchased Chris Tomlin's new CD, "And If Our God Is For Us...," for our family on Tuesday, and we have pretty much had it playing ever since.  Worshipful lyrics set to beautiful music make for an album full of great songs.  Also included with the deluxe version which we bought are four acoustic tracks and a bonus DVD with a behind the scenes interview and two music videos, all of which is totally worth the extra cost.

As much as I am enjoying the new songs of Chris Tomlin, it is one of his music videos from the bonus DVD that moved me the most.  A track from his "Hello Love" CD, the song "Love" was done with the amazing Watoto Children's Choir from Uganda.  As I watched these beautiful children sharing the stage with Chris Tomlin and worshiping the God of love along with him, my heart was stirred by the reality of a God who is over every tongue, tribe, and nation.  What an absolutely beautiful thing to see and to hear God being worshiped in a language other than our own.  It feels like a glimpse of heaven.
