“My Iniquities…”

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Isaiah 53:5-6

There are so many different ways to connect with God. Finding the one way that works for us is sometimes a bit difficult. We have mentioned many different ways over the past few days, however, one channel of communication that seems to work powerfully for many is music.

As I have watched over the years, for some, music is their worship and a very tangible experience. The variance is so great that I could never touch all the different sources, however, over this Lenten season I will endeavor to share a song of the day from many different styles and time periods. Maybe one will speak to your spirit.

Spend some time today either listening or watching the attached video, and let it sink down into your soul. How do you respond to the message? What kinds of emotions do you notice as you contemplate the words?

May God’s presence surround you this day, friends.

Lectio Divina Passage for today:

“Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.  There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold.  They laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.” – Acts 4:32-35
