Michael Lining sings a beautiful a cappella version of ‘Show Us Christ.’
‘Show Us Christ’ by Doug Plank and Bob Kauflin reminds us of the necessity of the preaching of the gospel till the ends of the earth.
Prepare our hearts, O God
Help us to receive
Break the hard and stony ground
Help our unbelief
Plant Your Word down deep in us
Cause it to bear fruit
Open up our ears to hear
Lead us in Your truth
Show us Christ, show us Christ
O God, reveal Your glory
Through the preaching of Your Word
Until every heart confesses Christ is Lord
Our hearts and minds are stirred up as we listen to Michael singing this song, the word of God says in Matthew 13:20-22, “Some seed fell on the stony ground. That is like a person who hears the message and right away he is glad to hear it. 21 But it does not go down deep in his heart. He believes it for a short time. When trouble or a hard time comes because of the message, he stops believing.”
Let us not be like the man who heard the word but could not allow it to work in his life, but rather let our hearts be like fertile ground where the word can grow deep and be established forever.
