A couple of  Saturday nights ago I was praising, worshiping, singing, and dancing for God with thousands of my brothers and sisters in Christ at “Worship Night In America” at a jam-packed BB&T Center in Sunrise Florida. Chris Tomlin, Kim Walker-Smith of Jesus Culture, Matt Maher, Christine D’Clario, Tauren Wells, and Pat Barrett of Housefires all appeared and performed LIVE on stage simultaneously with back-up musicians. Nobody was an opening or supporting act. Nobody was a headliner. Each artist took the lead with their respective hits.

I had an excellent floor seat right along the catwalk portion joining the two stages (main and middle). The stage was shaped like an “I”, and I was literally at the bottom left-hand corner of the “I” with the middle stage right behind me. I could have touched both Tauren Wells and Matt Maher as they played the piano to their respective hits. I felt like I was backing them up with vocals as thousands watched on. (I posted a couple of photos on Twitter from the concert.)

It was an awesome concert – 21 songs in all. Here’s the complete setlist:

  1. “This Is Amazing Grace”
  2. “God’s Great Dance Floor”
  3. “Love Has A Name”
  4. “Your Grace Is Enough”
  5. “When We Pray”
  6. “The Way (New Horizon)”
  7. “Como Dijiste”
  8. “Our God”
  9. “Hills and Valleys”
  10. “How He Loves”
  11. “Lord I Need You”
  12. “How Great Is Our God” (Reprise)
  13. “Resurrection Power”
  14. “What a Friend”
  15. “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)”
  16. “In The River”
  17. “What A Beautiful Name”
  18. “Good, Good Father”
  19. “Great Are You Lord”
  20. “Home”
  21. “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)”

I have returned from vacation. Regular Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Friday blogs resume.

I spent 4 of my vacation days at sea on this beauty (pictured above in Nassau) – the Disney Magic. It was my 21ST cruise overall (since 1991), 1ST cruise in nearly 4 years, and 1ST cruise on Disney Cruise Line. I enjoyed this cruise (with family) immensely. Other ports-of-call on this short cruise were Key West (just 130 miles down the Overseas Highway from my home) and Castaway Cay (Disney’s private Bahamian island).

I took a book with me to read. It was recently given to me by a Brother in Christ. It’s a short 140-page book titled, “Holiness, Truth, And The Presence Of God” by Francis Frangipane. I intended to read the whole book while on this cruise, but I only managed the first 52 pages. It’s been an amazing 52 pages. I loved how Francis described the beginning of salvation as seeing God’s Kingdom from a distance, and the expansion of salvation as entering God’s Kingdom. And I’ll add that God’s Kingdom continues to expand as you continue to move forward towards His light – bringing others with you.

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth – unless you are born again – you cannot see the Kingdom of God. I assure you – no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.” (John 3:3,5 NLT)

I may be preaching my next sermon next Sunday, so I should get that enhanced and finalized. It’s great to be back home – where I belong. It’s great to have you walking this fantastic journey with me.
