Blessed be Your nameIn the land that is plentifulWhere Your streams of abundance flowBlessed be Your name
Then we come to the fourth verse. Will we sing this truthfully? Or will we be singing a tune that we don't even model in our lives?
Blessed be Your nameOn the road marked with sufferingWhere there's pain in the offeringBlessed be Your name
Jesus describes what it means to follow Him: "...he must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me". Following Christ is during the good times and the bad times. Its not when we feel like it we follow Him, but rather we choose to follow Him with all of our lives. It is a path of self denial and putting Jesus first at all times.
Will we be a people who choose to bless God's name through all our lives?
