October: I Will Glory in My Redeemer

Everything has been a blur. I've been overwhelmed by how much I have had to do in the last month, whether it be classes, a cappella, church, etc. I haven't had the best attitude about it. I constantly have to remind myself to study well for God's glory.

Despite all this, the other night, I had the opportunity to just sit down and talk with a friend about God. For months, I have been praying for opportunities to share the Gospel with those whom I love and are not saved and the other night, the Lord had granted my prayer.

As I sat with this friend and discussed my faith, praying through the words I spoke, I was able to share the Gospel. A seed has been planted. I can only continue to witness to this friend and live a life that is glorifying to God. After all, the loudest sermon you preach is the life you live. So in light of the Gospel, I've chosen a song that reflected the Gospel.

This month's song is "I Will Glory in My Redeemer" by Sovereign Grace Music

I will glory in my Redeemer
Whose priceless blood has ransomed me
Mine was the sin that drove the bitter nails
And hung Him on that judgment tree
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who crushed the power of sin and death
My only Savior before the Holy Judge
The Lamb Who is my righteousness
The Lamb Who is my righteousness

I will glory in my Redeemer
My life He bought, my love He owns
I have no longings for another
I’m satisfied in Him alone
I will glory in my Redeemer
His faithfulness my standing place
Though foes are mighty and rush upon me
My feet are firm, held by His grace
My feet are firm, held by His grace

I will glory in my Redeemer
Who carries me on eagle’s wings
He crowns my life with lovingkindness
His triumph song I’ll ever sing
I will glory in my Redeemer
Who waits for me at gates of gold
And when He calls me it will be paradise
His face forever to beholdHis face forever to behold

This song is a kindly reminder of what the Gospel is and reminds us of who we live for. We do not live for ourselves, but for Christ. What a joy it is to know that we know the truth and that we live in light of it. A joy to know that we have been redeemed from our sins.
Pray for me. Pray for more opportunities to share the Gospel with others. Pray that I may radiate Jesus Christ from my life. Pray for my friend, that the Lord would reveal Himself to him.

Thank you for all your love and support.

1 John 1:5-9
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
