Introducing students to the city. Introducing the city to Jesus.

God of this City by Bluetree

Have you ever heard this song?  The first time I heard it was at the conclusion of Lynchburg’s 50 Days of Unbroken Prayer where churches all came together to keep a cycle of prayer for 50 days, obviously.  Do you realize the significance of that?  Churches, together!  Ironic that I’m excited about this?  Yes, but this city is a bit different.  With a unity mentality God becomes unleashed in His people.  No more eyes telling fingers they can’t and ankles telling livers that they’re not useful.  The body combined can be unleashed!

This is the prototypical song choice of any current urban ministry. “Greater things are yet to come, greater things are still to be done.”

This is the cry of a holy unrested people. There is always hope that our God will come through in greater strength and with greater peace than ever before. But, remember that Jesus’ strength and peace looks a little different than we may expect.

Although it has the aroma of a stereotypical medium, this song beats at the hearts of CampusSERVE volunteers. We carry it often as our banner because there really is “no one like our God.” In that we take a unique role as the family and body of Christ operating and engaging within the Kingdom of God.
