“God’s hand on us, God’s word in us, God’s glory our only pursuit.”
This short phrase outlines the vision for LifeWay Worship in the next year of our work. I first shared it in our year-end meeting. We were gathered for a celebration! It was a time when we thanked God for His grace toward us and affirmed our team for their extraordinary work this past year. And then, our eyes turned toward what we will be about for the next 12 months.
It was said of Ezra that “the gracious hand of the Lord was upon him” and we know how God used him to come along side Nehemiah to lead God’s people back to Him. I want that be true of me.
It reads in James 1 that if we put aside moral filth and evil intent, and humbly receive the implanted word, that word will save us. I want that to be true of me.
Paul closes a beautiful hymn in Romans 11 with a verse that appears in the entrance lobby of our offices in Nashville: “For from Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.” I want God’s glory to be my goal.
Hopefully you will see that pursuit within our work. Be blessed as you hear what God has placed in our hearts for your hands.
