Proverbs
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

The Word
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Romans 1:16-17

Sola gratia
"by grace alone"

Psalm 51 - Sons of Korah

A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

We too come to a place before the Lord when our sin overwhelms us and we throw ourselves upon His mercy, just as David has done here. We too also know that no Other can blot out our iniquity and we crave His cleansing and His restoration and joy of His salvation. No sweeter sound than that of the Lord saying, “Come unto Me, my child, you are forgiven”. Nothing can cause us to worship God more than knowing we are truly His.

15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give
it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God
are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.

    I love this band! It is so refreshing to hear songs like this, where the scriptures are simply put back across to the listener in a way that is acceptable to the ear.

    Obviously I don’t know in reality, but if I were to imagine what it would be like listen to David singing the psalms he wrote, it would not be far off from what I am experiencing right now.

    Thank you for introducing me to these guys Jessie. Now all I have to do is find out how to get hold of some of their stuff.

    John.

    Don’t worry, I just found their website and there is all the info I need there.

  • I recently purchased the album, Shelter, that this track is taken from and can thoroughly recommend it. :D

    It’s available on iTunes at a much cheaper price than on their own website.
