I’ve finally gotten to typing up some of what Guy Penrod (of the Gaither Vocal Band) spoke as he led in worship and ministered to thousands of worship leaders at Christian Supply’s Choral Festival this summer.
May this encourage you greatly:
- “God loves you. God loves you. God loves you. God loves you. GOD. LOVES. YOU. He will NEVER hurt you. Your past is forgiven. You’re free. Don’t pick it up again!”
- “Satan tries to affect you in your thoughts, tries to tell you that you aren’t worthy to lead people in worship. He’s right, BUT… the blood of Jesus covers it!“
- “We have boldness! We have God’s Spirit in us! We should not be timid when we come to God, but bold!” (Also see Hebrews 10:19-23, Hebrews 4:16, Ephesians 3:11-12)
- “We are spirit beings having human experiences.” (C.S. Lewis said: You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.)
- “Thy Word — a lamp unto my feet (Psalm 119:105), not a floodlight, so put tomorrow down!” Let us live NOW.
- On the song, Take My Life (Holiness): “For me, not from me. Holiness can only come from God, not us. He wants holiness for us, not from us.”
