One of my favorite songs, when I was younger, was a song sung by Joe Cocker entitled, “You Are So Beautiful.” Most people wouldn’t normally think about it being a gospel song, but it’s the song that Spirit and I sing to each other.
When I’m loving on God and I’m having an especially sacred time with the Holy Spirit, I will begin to hear this song in my heart. I feel the pure love of God flowing over me. Then I begin to sing it out loud and the tears flow.
I understand the Psalmist’s heart:
New International Version (NIV)
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
This morning, I’m sharing “Our” song with you. As we approach Resurrection Sunday, think about what Love God had for us. Think about the Beauty of the Cross. Think about the angels’ glorious song on that third day, when Jesus conquered the bondage of sin and death and showed up with ALL POWER IN his hands…then sing this song.
