Pursuing God Relentlessly

Pursuing God Relentlessly

pursuing God relentlesslyPursuing God Relentlessly. What does that mean? And why do we even want to know about it? Let’s talk about that. Come with me as we explore this whole “pursuing God relentlessly” idea.

If you’ve spent any time at all reading the Bible, you may have noticed that many of the people in the Bible pursued God relentlessly. They didn’t just casually follow Him. They followed Him with abandon.

You might notice that many people gave up everything they had and followed God with a tireless passion. Their lives were turned upside down because of this passion.

An Honest Look at The Modern Christian Worship Music PhenomenonLet’s take an honest look at the modern Christian worship music phenomenon. This is something I’ve intended to write about for a while now. But today I finally took the time to do it.

I am a music fanatic. I want to be very clear about that right up front. You might even call me a music freak. I have loved music for as long as I can remember.

Even as a child, I remember my parents playing music a lot. We were not Christians at that time. My parents listened to secular music, so that was what titillated my musical taste buds. It gave me a diverse taste in musical styles and genres.

Country music, rock & roll and more…

Country music greats, such as Tammy Wynette & George Jones were frequent players. The very early years of Rod Stewart, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and others would play frequently. I was 7 or 8 years old at the time.

My parents listened to Elvis Presley frequently. And then came Continue reading
