Hi there!

 

Welcome to Barah Ministries…a Christian Church based in Mesa, AZ…my name is Pastor Rory Clark.

 

There are many ways to learn about God, and one of those ways is through songs, which do a great job of communicating the truth of the Word of God.  Here at Barah Ministries, we are blessed to have one of the best songwriters, best singers, and best music producers, all wrapped up in a single package.  Her name is June Murphy, and her songs are amazing at communicating the truth of the Word of God.

 

Today you’ll hear a song from June’s third album…the Calling You to Freedom album…today’s song is BEAUTIFUL.

 

TODAY’S SONG

I Am Beautiful

 

So often we feel bad about ourselves.  I think it’s Santa Claus’ fault.  You may remember the song, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”  Remember this…

 

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN

 

You better watch out

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN

 

He’s making a list

He’s checking it twice

Gonna find out

Who’s naughty and nice

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

Since we were kids we’ve been receiving the message that we are acceptable when we are good and we’re unacceptable when we’re bad.  The bible paints quite a different picture.  Are we bad?  Sure we are!  Romans, Chapter 3, Verses 10 and 11…

 

ROMANS 3:10

…as it is written, “There is no creature who is righteous, not even one…”

 

ROMANS 3:11

“There is no creature who understands God…there is no creature who seeks for a relationship with God…”

 

Romans, Chapter 7, Verse 15…

 

ROMANS 7:15

For what I am doing, I do not understand…for I am not practicing the good I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.

 

Yes we’re bad…yet God loves us anyway, ESPECIALLY when we are bad!  Romans, Chapter 5, Verse 8…

 

ROMANS 5:8

But God the Father demonstrates His own unconditional love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 

When we were at our worst, God the Father sent His Son to die so we wouldn’t have to.  Why?  Because God loves you UNconditionally!

BEAUTIFUL

June Murphy

 

Here’s June to sing about how God sees us in her song…BEAUTIFUL.

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I have been wounded

I have been scarred

But never beyond

The healing power of God

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I’ve been rejected

Been abandoned, too!

But none of this changes

God’s point of view

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I’m His prized possession

The apple of His eye

When He looks at me

He is filled with pride

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

To Him…I am special

I am His very own

I am Royalty

Co-Heir to Christ’s throne!

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

The eyes of my soul can see

How the Father looks at me

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

I am beautiful

God has made me beautiful

I am beautiful

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

Neither man’s opinion

Nor what others see

Changes the fact that

I truly love me

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

Jesus lives within me

I reflect His might

Yes…He shines right thru me

And I am His delight…

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

The eyes of my soul can see

How the Father looks at me

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

I am beautiful

God has made me beautiful

I am beautiful

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

Beauty’s in the eye of the beholder

And I know who’s beholding me

No circumstance will ever change

That the Trinity’s in me

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

The eyes of my soul can see

How My Father looks at me

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

I am beautiful

I see myself as beautiful

I am beautiful

God has made me beautiful

God thinks I am…beautiful

 

I AM BEAUTIFUL

 

Beautiful…

Beautiful…

Beautiful!

 

FIRST JOHN 4:8b

…God is UNCONDITIONAL love.

 

FIRST JOHN 4:9

By this the UNCONDITIONAL love of God was manifested (made clearly visible) in us, that God the Father has sent His uniquely born Son into the world so that we might live the resurrection life through Him.

 

God loves you UNconditionally…you can never disappoint Him.  He ALWAYS has and ALWAYS will see you as beautiful!  Thanks June, for this beautiful and instructive song. 

Psalm 95, Verse 1 says…

 

PSALM 95:1

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…

Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.

 

We dedicate the closing moments of our lesson today to anyone watching or to anyone listening who no longer wants to live under the slavery and the rulership of God’s enemy, Satan…to anyone who does not have a relationship with the One and Only God…the God who loves you unconditionally…the God who thinks you’re beautiful…the faithful One…the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 21 says…

 

ACTS 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

Right now, you can call on the name of the Lord by telling God the Father that you believe in His Son, and that’s the moment of eternal life for you.  Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the best and most important decision you can make in your lifetime.  A simple five-word request gets you to heaven…“Father, I believe in Christ.”  For a thief being crucified next to Jesus, it was a nine word request…Luke, Chapter 23, Verses 42 and 43…

 

LUKE 23:42-43

And the repentant thief was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!”//And Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Let today be the day you stop putting off the best decision of your life. You won’t ever regret believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and counting on Him to accomplish your salvation.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ…and you will be saved…then, get to know Him!  Grow, within the sphere of His grace, in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In John, Chapter 3, Verse 36, the Lord Himself says…

 

JOHN 3:36

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life (the resurrection life) right at that moment…but he who does not obey the command to believe in the Son will not see the resurrection life, but the wrath of God (the Lake of Fire) abides on him.”

 

The Lord is eager to save you.  Decide!
