Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery

"Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery" is a simple and wonderful modern hymn which beautifully summarizes the gospel of Jesus Christ.  It was written by Matt Papa, Matt Boswell, and Michael Bleecker.  Our plea to the nations is for them to come behold the wondrous mystery of the good news of Jesus Christ, to come to Him with true belief and true repentance.  Oh that the gospel message would be proclaimed throughout the world to all peoples!

Singing the Word

Romans 1:1-6

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

Sovereign Grace Music has an album called Grace Has Come: Songs from the Book of Romans.  The album contains 16 songs based on passages and themes in the book of Romans—theological truths about our depravity and need for repentance and faith and about God's gracious provision of justification and forgiveness in the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross. It is about the gospel. This week, 
I am highlighting the album's first song "The Gospel Was Promised" which is based on Romans 1:1-6. Enjoy!

Psalms, hymns, and Spiritual Songs.

~ Psalm 100:1-2 ~
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
     Serve the Lord with gladness!
    Come into his presence with singing!

The first week, I posted a spiritual song, "All I Have Is Christ."  Then, I posted a hymn, "A Debtor To Mercy Alone." This week, I am posting a psalm—Psalm 73 by Indelible Grace Music. The words are an adaptation of the biblical psalm put to contemporary music.

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!

~ Psalm 150:6 ~
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
Praise the Lord!

The song for this week is an old 18th century hymn by Augustus Toplady "A Debtor To Mercy Alone" updated by Indelible Grace Music.  May it draw your heart more toward Christ and the gospel.

If you're unfamiliar with Indelible Grace Music, I highly recommend their music.  They take wonderful old hymns they are rich and solid and put them to new music—a great remedy for some of the fluff that is out there today.
