As a former high school Bible teacher, there were certain expectations I had when I accepted a position at a Christian school. It didn’t take long to realize that most of my students were simply going through the motions. Basic spiritual disciplines were lacking from their lives which prompted me to rewrite the curriculum for each grade to help seekers get started on the right track with Jesus, Romans 10:9-11.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles. 18 The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent, Psalm 34:17-18.
Today’s song by Jeremy Camp features a similar theme, Getting Started. Jeremy has released eleven albums during his music career, four of went on to become RIAA-certified as Gold. Jeremy’s attached video highlight a dreamer who is working hard to accomplish something others never believed was possible. Along life’s journey, you will be crushed, and heart broken. Yet, the lyrics of Getting Started point to Philippians 1:6, waiting on God to complete what He began in you. Enjoy today’s song.
