Greetings righteous people! It overjoys my soul, the song I’m about to talk about!
If you didn’t read my previous Weekly Soap, go read it now! It explains how Jesus is the well of living water, full of everlasting life.
Now, I will preface that this Song of the Week is no ordinary song. It will have you jumping, shouting, and overwhelmed with the love of God! So listen at your own risk because I could not sit down after listening!
Holy Water is the upbeat song I needed to hear about forgiveness and the grace of God, but mostly about how much we need it.
Starting at the beginning.
God, I’m on my knees again
God, I’m begging please again
I need You
Oh, I need You
Walking down this desert road
Water for my thirsty soul
I need You
Oh, I need You
This verse reminded me of so many moments where I felt far away from God. It was kneeling on my floor in my living room crying out to God that became the epitome of this verse. Sometimes we come to a crossroads where we feel no peace or have fallen back into sin, yet the only one we know to call on is God. If He doesn’t step in, we would continue down a path of desolation. I need Him. You need Him. We all need Him.
But what follows our plea is what we shouldn’t take for granted: God’s mercy and grace; forgiveness.
Is like sweet, sweet honey
On my lips
Like the sound of a symphony
To my ears
Like holy water on my skin
On my skin
There is nothing like forgiveness. That it is sweeter than anything. It sounds better than anything. It feels like refreshing water! In Psalms 130:3-4 NLT, it says, “Lord, if you kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive? But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you”. God is gracious that even for the sins we have committed, with repentance, they are washed away. We have a clean slate. Who wouldn’t revere a God like that?
Sometimes we get caught up. I’ve heard the saying, “But God knows my heart” multiple times because of forgiveness right. Well, of course, God knows our heart, but let’s look at scripture.
Romans 6:1-2 NLT says, “Well then, should we keep on sinning so that GOd can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?”
We shouldn’t abuse God’s grace knowing that He forgives us! When we accepted Christ in our lives, we were no longer slaves to sin. We are freed by Him, so since we know better, we have to do better (vs 17-18)!
Just like We The Kingdom sang,
I don’t wanna abuse Your grace
God, I need it every day
It’s the only thing that ever really
Makes me wanna change
Also Enjoy the rendition of this song with We The Kingdom, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, and Maverick City Music.
