He Loves Me!: Learning to Live in the Fathers Affection by Wayne JacobsenSo many Christians believe Gods love is fickle: when they sin, He turns away in disgust and anger. They vacillate between He loves me and He loves me not because of their behavior. That reasoning, writes Wayne Jacobsen, is as flawed as pulling petals from a daisy. Rather Gods love is sturdy, enduring, and undisturbed by peoples failings because God loves humankind not for what they do--but who they are. They are Gods beloved creation.
Startlingly honest and empathetically written, HE LOVES ME! reveals the facts of Gods relentless grace. Readers will learn how to live consciously, confidently in this love all the time. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion help make these truths practical and life-changing. Insecure Christians ready for a revolutionary relationship with God will find out just how accessible that is.
"How He Loves" - Live Performance Video
Read more. Packed with 17 full tracks, the band hopes this album serves as a reminder of the continual evolvement of music within the church. The band finds a unique balance of capturing the sweet lyrical moments of the song but continually crescendos the intensity of the song and the message as the simple chorus builds over and over again.
How He Loves
I honestly kind of hate that I even have to write this blog. It belongs to them. David contacted me and very sincerely asked if it would be cool to change a couple words in his version, because he knew that there are literally thousands of people who would never hear the song the way it was. After a couple weeks of thought I decided to go ahead with it. Mostly because I knew it was only a matter of time before someone recorded a version with a different line, and honestly, I was glad for David to be the one to do it.
And I sat down and had a conversation with God about it. And that song, basically, popped out. God took him up on it. And out of his sacrifice, a youth movement of others like himówilling to lay down their livesówould be birthed and this song would be the fuse that would ignite it. None of it was untrue in any way shape or form. To the point where, someone said Stephen was raised from the dead and came back and gave me that thought [song].
I went to church every Sunday, and sang along every Sunday, but put very little thought into the words I was singing. My mistake, as there are some very good words there. Words that can remind us of who God is and who we are; that can stir our affections for Him and help us better express gratitude for what He has done. If people simply read and mindlessly sing along, we can express some really great truths without actually hearing or understanding them ourselves. It does so, I think, not because it is beautiful poetry, but because it actually has a lot of truth from Scripture packed into the lyrics.
John Mark McMillan posted a still from a music video outtake on his Facebook fan page. However, today in chapel, I heard a competitor for this title. Without further ado, behold: How He Loves Us. The story behind the lyrics is given in great detail in the video posted at the top. The author of the song is a relative unknown in any music circle: John Mark McMillan. McMillan is quite a talented writer and musician, despite the relative anonymity.
