Here are the songs that we will sing this Sunday.
The truest community I have ever experienced was at college. What made it so great? Anytime you had a problem, emotional or spiritual, or if you were just bored and needed a friend to blow off some steam with, there was almost always someone around. What made our particular community great was that there was little to no pretense and little to no judging. We were who we were and it was ok. I look back now at the fairly eclectic group of individuals who bonded so well and I am grateful that the Lord brought us together.
I trust that that will not be the last time I experience that level of community. Indeed, I already feel like it is growing at Christos. It is not as easy and fast as it was in college. We all have more responsibilities and fewer opportunities. But, if you grasp these opportunities and stick with it, you may surprise yourself with the freedom you discover in true community.
Themes: grace, adoption, holiness… they’re all there in that Eph 1:3-6 passage. Here it is in English & Spanish interlinear: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=eph%201%3A3-6&version=ESV;NVI
2. Tu Gracia En Mi – G
Talks about God’s great faithfulness and grace. And helps those who are hurting to remember that the same great grace that He lavished on us in Christ is available when we feel like we are at the end of ourselves. Took me a while to realize that this song (which quotes from 2 Cor 12:7-10) has a lot in common with “Blessed Be Your Name”.
3. Me has atraido Jesus – G
Since all the blessings Eph 1 talks about are ours because of being in Christ, Me has atraido Jesus is great as it focuses on so many of the riches we have in Christ

5. King of Glory – E (real key) – D (capo 2)
(Third Day version) Another song that focuses on the diverse attributes of Christ. Although the tempo of the lyrics should make it accessible for speakers of either language, it still packs rich lyrics in a small space.
Our response to His amazing generosity?
