Week 18: Greater Things (God of this City)

Chris Tomlin – God of this City

You’re the God of this city
You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation
You are… 

You’re the Light in the darknes
You’re the Hope to the hopeless
You’re the Peace to the restless
You are…

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God 

For greater things are yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city
For greater things are yet to come
And greater things are still to be done here

I recently heard the Twin Cities version of God of this City by BlueTree where they swap of the words this city for the Twin Cities …awesome stuff. To top it all off, that song tied in well with our service this past Sunday…the first one the Vine has led since we all came here.

Our pastor spoke about Christmas…in the middle of July, none the less…and tied the Christmas story into why Jesus came and why God sent us here, to Minneapolis.

Have you heard the story about this song? Blue Tree – Story Behind the Song

You’re the God of this city
You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation
You are…

He truly is.

You’re the Light in the darkness
You’re the Hope to the hopeless
You’re the Peace to the restless
You are…

There is so much darkness, hopelessness and restlessness in this city. I see it every day; in taking the bus to and from work, at the office and over the phones, in walking downtown and in uptown, and through the stories of those who are serving in our communities. Rest assured. God is the Light that will the lead the way. God is the Hope for tomorrow and a better, brighter future, spent with Him. God is the Peace that seeps into our very being, allowing us to press on. He is.

There is no one like our God

Who can measure up to the greatness of our God? Who is like Him? No one.

For greater things are yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city

God has a good and perfect plan for this city. He has a good and perfect plan for each one of us and that plan matches up with His will for all. We must have faith Him for what He is about to do here will go beyond what any mere man can comprehend. There is no one like our God.
