"The Pain Reminds Us This is Not Our Home"

"What if my greatest disappointments, or the aching of this life is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy."

Our pastor recently preached a killer sermon on the name of Jesus Christ. Did you know Jesus and Christ are only the worldly names given to the Son of Man in His humanity? It was the LORD Most High that was and is His title in heaven.

This name depicts supremacy, sovereignty, power.

It is because Jesus Christ is the LORD Most High that we can have any hope at all. As Christians our hope isn't only in a meek and mild man who taught us to love one another, it is in the King of Kings, Lord of Lords who has the government upon His shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) and is making His enemies a footstool for His feet! (Psalm 110:1) He is the LORD who is recreating, restoring, redeeming and renewing all the earth.

This is what gives us comfort in trials. Peace in turmoil. Blessings during storms.

Enjoy this song by Laura Story, and hear the longing for better things, knowing with hope the LORD Most High, Jesus ("God Saves"), is reigning to redeem.
