Forever Reign

July 13, 2012 By: Donnie Berry

  When I heard this song for the first time recently, it immediately gripped my heart. I think it was the declaration of truth about God, paired alongside my inadequacy and fear and failure. I know well what it is to have nothing good in me, for the darkness to close in, to have crippling fear and a wandering hea

You Deserve

June 21, 2012 By: David Haasis

  I always find it interesting when a song's title is not taken directly from the lyrics. I enjoy trying to determine how the title makes sense and adds new perspective to the meaning of the song. "You Deserve" is a song that fits this category. The theme expressed by the title is found in the lyrics even though

The Lost are Found

May 30, 2012 By: David Haasis

  Last fall at the Jesus Culture Awakening Conference I heard a new song played by Hillsong United and almost immediately sensed there was something powerful going on as we sang the song. Singing the faith-filled declarations about what Jesus is doing and who He is with thousands of other Christians was amazing.

Savior’s Here

May 10, 2012 By: David Haasis

  "Are you ready to hear some good news?" In Phil's last sermon, Him We Proclaim, he mentioned how a pastor he recently met started using this question before every sermon to help make sure he stayed focused on the essential; the substance of the gospel. This question is a great reminder for all of us to return o

In some places it is emphasized over and over again, such as Psalm 136 which has the phrase "His steadfast love endures forever" in all 26 verses (Psalm 136:1-26); a reminder of how God works good for His people because of His enduring lov

Easter Preview

April 4, 2012 By: David Haasis

Every Easter we usually sing a few songs that are new to CF to fit with a specific theme for the morning. Some of these songs may become a regular part of worship at CF, but others will not. Even though these songs might not fit the usual criteria for the New Song Blog, I still thought it would be a good idea to give a

Oh Great Love of God

March 21, 2012 By: David Haasis

  As Easter approaches we are going to look at a new song by the David Crowder Band called "Oh Great Love of God" from the album Give Us Rest Or (A Requiem Mass In C [The Happiest Of All Keys]). This song is about Jesus being the Lamb of God (John 1:29), and how His sacrifice and resurrection brings us life. Ther

First New Song Blog – Never Once

February 25, 2012 By: David Haasis

  For quite a while now I have had the desire to start a New Song Blog. The idea is that every time the CF Worship Community introduces a new song to become a regular part of worship, one of the leaders will share some thoughts about the song and links to videos or other sites with resources related to the song.
