My Top 10 Hits – Week 185

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday August 30TH 2020:

1 1 5 Miracles Colton Dixon
2 3 16 No Impossible With You I AM THEY
3 7 3 God So Loved We The Kingdom
4 8 2 The Blessing Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes, Elevation Worship
5 2 11 There Was Jesus Zach Williams Ft. Dolly Parton
6 4 25 Alive & Breathing Matt Maher
7 5 20 Keep Me In The Moment Jeremy Camp
8 1 Rise Up (Lazarus) Cain
9 9 2 Who Am I NeedToBreathe
10 10 2 Peace Be Still Hope Darst

# 1 This Week In:
2019 – “Nobody (But Jesus)” – Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West
2018 – “Who You Say I Am” – Hillsong Worship
2017 – “Broken Things” – Matthew West

Colton Dixon remains at # 1 for a 2ND week with my favorite song on the radio. In addition to the lyrics of “Miracles” I love its feel. I love its beat. It almost gets funky at one point during the song where I wish I had bongo drums to play along to the beat.

I AM THEY ease back up a notch to # 2 after slipping to # 3 last week with their former # 1 smash “No Impossible With You”. You know each summer there’s a sleeper smash that I never saw coming. It’s the song that will likely remind me (personally) of this summer season years from now. I think this is it. It’ll be interesting to see where this song lands on my special chart next Tuesday September 08TH when I #CountUp my Top 10 hits of the Summer of 2020 (from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend).

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 5 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, Monday, and a special Tuesday edition. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to share God’s Good News and win souls for Christ through His music. I’m also on Twitter and Flickr.

Be blessed my friends !  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Sunday Scripture

Greetings my friends ! It’s Sunday August 30TH 2020, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us continue to praise and worship Christ our Savior !

This past Friday evening I got the call to preach to my church body on this Sunday morning. I immediately went to work to finalize my sermon. I’ll be preaching out of the Book of Malachi with a sermon that I wrote in January and February (before COVID-19). It’s the first part of hopefully a multi-part message series on the prophet Malachi. I haven’t started writing the second part yet. I was waiting until I had the opportunity to preach the first part before I began work on the next part.

In this first part I’ll be covering Malachi’s message on God’s love for Israel – as well as his message on corrupt priests.

Scripture will be mostly from the Old Testament with 4 additional verses from Romans.

My “call-to-action” to close-out my sermon will be based on Romans 10:14-15:

How can they – call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him ?
How can they – believe in Him if they have never heard about Him ?
How can they – hear about Him unless someone tells them ?
How will anyone go and tell them without being sent ?
That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring Good News !”

You know I always get excited and look forward to “Sermon Sunday” – those Sundays when I get the opportunity to share my heart with my brothers and sisters of my church body. I am blessed for these opportunities to preach God’s Word from the pulpit.

Even if these opportunities to preach were to diminish or disappear – I’d still write sermons at home. I’d continue to share them with you – my brothers and sisters in Christ – my friends and neighbors worldwide who follow this blog. My sermons are open letters to God.

If you’re a believer and follower of God then I encourage you to talk to Him, sing for Him, dance for Him, and write to Him. Do it all for Him. Share with others what God places in your heart. Be a messenger of God’s Good News.

If you’re not yet a believer and follower of God then I encourage you to keep an open mind and an open heart. I’d like to share with you the God that I know. He’s the God that loves you immensely. He’s got a fantastic journey that awaits you. It’s created and customized just for you. He’ll wait for you until you’re ready to accept Him.
