You make beautiful things

  If you haven’t given the band Gungor a chance yet, you are missing out on some pretty great Christian music. Their most popular song – “Beautiful Things” – has the following chorus:

You make beautiful things 

You make beautiful things out of the dust

You make beautiful things 

You make beautiful things out of us

Woah. What a powerful statement: God can bring life and beauty from nothing. Genesis 2:7 says, “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” 

The idea of “nothingness” into “somethingness” is special. It is a theme that appears in all aspects of our lives, from science to movies to the food we eat. I believe that’s because our creator knew that human beings would enjoy watching this idea of things coming to life – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

In Germany, there are a lot of people waiting to go from dust to life. We have met people here whose testimony demonstrates this amazing transformation that only comes from a relationship with Christ. Our prayer is that so many more people will experience the feeling of “somethingness.” Will you join us in praying right now not only for the people we are building relationship with here in Germany, but also for someone (or several someones) in your life who needs to be made new in Christ?
