Build Your Kingdom Here

Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective was written as a bit of a prayer for the Kingdom to come true. It is a call to the church to be the place of revival. The Scriptures that follow connect with the song.

Colossians 3:14-16 (NKJV): "But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
Matthew 6:33-34 (NKJV): "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
Matthew 10:7 (NIV): "As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.'"

Come set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we're made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You're our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt, the sick, the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for heaven's cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

Unleash Your kingdom's power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope
On earth

Wide as the Sky

Hello from Redeemer Baptist Church. This is our first blog post. 

Today's post is about the song 'Wide as the Sky' by Matt Redman.

Here are the lyrics:

Hands up, hearts open
wide as the sky
We lift You high, we life You high
Hands up, hearts open
wide as we cry 
God, we lift Your name high

Let all the other names fade away
Let all the other names fade away
Until there's only You
Let all the other names fade away
Jesus, take Your place
Jesus, take Your place

Our God, we lift Your name high
We lift Your name high
Hand up, God we lift Your name high

This song is so simple yet so powerful because it talks about letting everything that isn't Jesus fade away so Jesus can take his rightful place. 

Colossians 3:1-4:
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
