In Christ we have freedom. Free from the power of sin; free from the bondage of our past; free to walk by the Spirit in freedom, free to be content in whatever situation we find ourselves, free to find healing and deliverance in our Savior. And in all these things, this freedom offers hope and glorifies God. Here is a list of songs focusing on freedom.
Do you ever wonder if God is still in control of this world? It's normal to wonder that, but at the same time, we need to keep reminding ourselves that God is indeed all-powerful. In spite of all our circumstances, the power of God is real and relevant. When we sing about his power, our hearts are filled with hope, courage, and renewed confidence to face another day. These are the songs that remind us of the powerful God we serve.
The Holy Spirit is God with us — today, here and now. Through the Holy Spirit, we have the presence of God. He is our Counselor who comforts and convicts. Through the Holy Spirit, God is mighty and powerful, but He is also soft and subtle. He whispers truth that is timely and personal, while at the same time eternal. These are the songs that teach about the Holy Spirit and invite God to move among us with His presence.
When we sing about God's grace and we believe the truth deep in our hearts, it affects our lives. We live with more compassion. We extend more mercy. We feel more empathy. This is why worship songs about grace and mercy are so important to the church. Every day and every week, through song and word, we must remind ourselves about the nature of God who is full of grace. What we receive from God, we extend to others. This is the full cycle of worship.
We were not created for isolation. God intended for our souls to draw close to one another, and to be sustained by the eternity of a relationship with Him. His presence is eternal, His mercy is unchangeable, and His intimacy intercedes through His love for each of us. Through the healing and the hurting, we are pursued by a faithful friend in Jesus Christ. Here is a list of songs focusing on friendship.
