I follow Canton Junction, the quartet Matthew Hagee is a part of and looked forward to this solo album. I love country, I love gospel and I love this album. “I Don’t Want To Get Adjusted” & “This Ain’t Nothin’” are bound to get stuck in your head, but most of all the lyrics are worth singing.
No matter what you’re going through, God is a God of new beginnings. Every song on this album glorifies our Savior Jesus Christ who offers us all “A New Season”. I pray this album reaches many with its encouraging message of hope.
Testimonies are powerful because they release the power of Jesus to all who hear them. I taught the children how they overcome the enemy “by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony” Revelation 12:11. I know these testimonies will ignite your faith and help you have faith like a child.
Again all the words come from John 1. The verses are just arranged to present a skit. Here are the words so you can read along.
And the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own would not receive him.
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.
Listen to 10 year old Nathan preach and share his testimonies. One day during our weekly discipleship class I taught Nathan about the power of the testimony and how testimonies release the power of Jesus. At first I was going to have Nathan write his testimony, but then I realized I had purchased a new microphone and perhaps recording his testimony would be more fun. I was amazed by the anointed words that came out of this young man so I produced the following recording. I pray that Nathan’s faith ignites your faith!
I have the amazing opportunity to meet with Nathan weekly for one on one discipleship. Nathan is a special young man with an evident calling upon his life. He has a hunger for God’s word and His presence. In partnership with Nathan’s parents, I have been discipling Nathan since March 2009. Each week we spend time in worship and prayer and discuss his spiritual development. I’ve also given Nathan opportunities to minister during our children’s services on Sunday. I realize that discipleship is simply being used by God to create an atmosphere of growth for those God calls you to disciple. I pray that God continues to use me as someone who helps Nathan towards his prophetic destiny.
