There is no shortage, or so it seems, of songs about the love of God. For someone who hasn't really truly experienced the impact of God's lovingkindness, these songs can be redundant and annoying. But, when the love of God collides with your life, the impact can (and should) be so powerful that all you want to do is talk and sing and think about that love.
while we were still sinners, while we were still enemies, God sent his only son to die for us.
If you've been around church for a while, you've heard that a million times or so. And the message can seem stale. We forget how powerful the Gospel was for us when it first penetrated deep into our hearts.
I believe that new songs can help us keep that message fresh, which is the main reason why I am a writer of worship songs. I'd love to write the next "Good Good Father" or "How Deep the Father's Love For Us" or "Never Ending Love" to help followers of Jesus experience again the power of His love in a new way.
Yes, the catalogue of love songs about God seem neverending. But, that catalogue will never come close to expressing how wide, how long, how high, and how deep the love that God has for us.
Here is a new song that I have been listening to a LOT lately. The lyrics are simple. The music is simple. The message is profound.
"In Your never ending love,Never Ending Love - 10,000 Fathers
You rescued me,
Sought me out,
And set me free
In Your never ending love,
Is all I need,
All I need"
