Fairest Lord Jesus: Song and Devotional

Fairest Lord Jesus

            Most people would say that there is no greater love than the love of a mother. While the love of a mother is great, there is a far greater love. The love of God is incomparable to any other love. He loved us enough to give His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for our sins. While the love of a mother is indeed great, the love of God is incomprehensible. It is without fault or fail.

            The more we know of the love of God, the more we love Him. The more we love God, the more our heart is inclined to worship Him. Some today say that they can’t worship unless they have a particular style of music. I personally love many types of music. However, people who make these statements are clueless as to what worship truly is. Worship has nothing to do with a style of music, nor does it have anything to do with music. Worship is about God and God alone.

Worship is a recognition and then a response to who God is. Fairest Lord Jesus is far from a contemporary song. Some might even consider it liturgical. Though I love the melody, the words of this song are clearly words of worship. They are words that recognize and respond to the majestic person of God. They are words that demonstrate a clear understanding of God and express it with love and honor.

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all
Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all
Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature
O thou of God and man the Son
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor
Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown

            Mothers are undoubtedly worthy of love and respect. And they absolutely deserve a special day of recognition. They even deserve more. However, God and God alone is worthy of worship. On this special day of the recognition of mothers, give them the respect that is due, but don’t forget to worship God. I believe even in your worship of God, you will honor your mother.

Great is Thy Faithfulness: Song and Devotional

Great is Thy Faithfulness

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.” Lamentation 3:22-24

One of the most assured truths in all of scripture is the faithfulness of God. He is the Epidemy of faithfulness. With this truth in mind, we should be reminded that God owes us nothing, yet He is faithful. He is the almighty creator whereas the earth is the Lord’s and all therein, yet He chooses to be faithful to us. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lord’s, who is worthy of all surrender and service, yet He is faithful to His servants.

Why is God faithful? Because of His steadfast love that never ceases. God loves us with an incomprehensible love. Those who know Him know His love and know His faithfulness. Those who know Him know that The Lord indeed is their portion.

God is faithful even when we are faithless. He is faithfully there to draw His children back into right relationship, for He chastises those of whom He loves; He is faithful. His love and faithfulness move those who love Him unto faithfulness. Apart from God’s faithfulness to pursue us and draw us unto Himself, we would never have the slightest desire to know Him, much less live for Him. He is faithful.

Even when the world has turned its back on you and all have forsaken you, He is faithful. Even when all that you’ve trusted in crumbles around you, He is faithful. Therefore, I will hope in Him. And, yes, we can rebel against Him and His faithfulness but then we would never know how great is His faithfulness.
