Another thing i miss because of my own not posting blogs of late... Music Monday. This has been a song that recently has really grabbed my attention and brought forth meditations of God. To think that God would condescend and become flesh. To leave His glory, to leave heaven, to walk among man. He then proclaimed the word of God, and when He had accomplished all that He had come to do, He ascended back to his home. Because of this all those who come to receive Him and believe, will then get to share His home when our time here on earth is complete. What an incredible thing to think upon.

One day when Heaven was filled with His praisesOne day when sin was as black as could beJesus came forth to be born of a virginDwelt among men, my example is HeWord became flesh and the light shined among usHis glory revealed
Living, He loved meDying, He saved meBuried, He carried my sins far awayRising, He justified freely foreverOne day He’s comingOh glorious day, oh glorious day
One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountainOne day they nailed Him to die on a treeSuffering anguish, despised and rejectedBearing our sins, my Redeemer is HeHands that healed nations, stretched out on a treeAnd took the nails for me
One day the grave could conceal Him no longerOne day the stone rolled away from the doorThen He arose, over death He had conqueredNow He’s ascended, my Lord evermoreDeath could not hold Him, the grave could not keep HimFrom rising again
One day the trumpet will sound for His comingOne day the skies with His glories will shineWonderful day, my Beloved One, bringingMy Savior, Jesus, is mine
Oh, glorious day
From the notes and the group and song writers: The hymn "One Day" was a big hymn for me growing up. All I knew was hymns until probably 21 or 22 years old; that’s what we had in our church. The chorus: "Living He loved me, dying He saved me, buried He carried my sins far away," that has just been a part of me from the start. As a youth pastor, you want your students to hear the theology of the hymns and sometimes you have to play it a little different way.
