Hello all. It is my sincere intention to post more content on this website. In addition to writing more blog posts/articles/pieces/ramblings, I intend to run a special series or two. The one I’m most excited about is SONG SPOTLIGHT.
From time to time, I will post a song I’ve been enjoying lately. Music can be a powerful force in our spiritual lives. One of my mentors, Tony Merida calls music “portable theology.” You take songs with you as you go about your life. So, I intend to introduce you to some great new pieces of portable theology every now and then.
Also, I intend to introduce you to some downright good musicianship and writing. Not every song will be explicitly Christian, but many will.
I can’t think of a better way to kick off this series than with a wonderful song called “Mediator” by a worship band called Ghost Ship. Check it out below!
For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
