Weekend Worship :: Here is our King
This week, for Weekend Worship, I want to feature one of my favorite modern day songwriters and worship leaders. David Crowder is the Pastor of Music and Arts at University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas. He also happens to be the frontman for the David Crowder Band. Finally, and most importantly, he is my daughter, Grace's favorite worship leader. This video was taken while he was leading worship at the Passion '05 gathering in Atlanta, GA. The song speaks, as do many Crowder songs, to the greatness of God. I've been contemplating the sovereignty of God a great deal lately. For a sermon a week or two ago I came across this quote by A.W. Pink:
The Sovereignty of God. What do we mean by this expression? We mean the supremacy of God, the kingship of God, the god-hood of God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that God is God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, doing according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, so that none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doest Thou? (Dan. 4:35). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in Heaven and earth, so that none can defeat His counsels, thwart His purpose, or resist His will (Psa. 115:3). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is "The Governor among the nations" (Psa. 22:28), setting up kingdoms, overthrowing empires, and determining the course of dynasties as pleaseth Him best. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the "Only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords" (1 Tim. 6:15). Such is the God of the Bible.
What a powerful reminder of the greatness of our God! That is the kind of King that I want to serve! This song serves as a wonderful reminder of God's greatness. I hope you enjoy it this weekend. I'll see you in church on Sunday!
