Kuasa dibalik Paskah: Worthy is The Lamb..!!


Pertama mari kita awali dengan penyembahan kepada Kristus Yesus: Worthy is The Lamb..!

Thank you for the cross, Lord.
Thank you for the price you paid.
Bearing all my sin and shame, in love you came
And gave Amazing Grace.

Thank you for this love, Lord.
Thank you for the nail-pierced hands.
Wash me in Your cleansing flow, now all I know…
Your forgiveness and embrace.

Worthy is the Lamb

Seated on the throne.
We crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious!
High and lifted up
Jesus, Son of God.
The darling of Heaven, crucified…
Worthy is the Lamb.

Rekaman MP3 ini merupakan duet bersama dengan kak Vina Yunike (Teknik Lingkungan ITB angkatan 2005) Pada saat perayaan Paskah ITB tahun 2009. Hari itu merupakan hari yang sangat berkesan bagi saya karena bisa bernyanyi menyembah Tuhan yang ajaib bersama dengan kak Vina dan merasakan hadirat yang Dahsyat!

Kemudian mari kita merenungkan kisah dan Firman Tuhan berikut:

Bacaan: Efesus 2:1-10

Sebab karena anugerah kamu diselamatkan oleh iman; itu bukan hasil usahamu, tetapi pemberian Allah, itu bukan hasil pekerjaanmu, supaya tidak ada orang yang memegahkan diri. (Efesus 2:8-9)

Di salah satu pos pelayanan gereja saya, ada anggota yang bekerja sebagai pemulung rangkas (barang bekas). Rangkas yang terkumpul ada yang berasal dari kota lain di Indonesia. Di tempat itu, rangkas dipilah: botol dengan botol, kardus dengan kardus, plastik dengan plastik, besi dengan besi. Selanjutnya, rangkas dibawa ke pabrik untuk didaur ulang.

Kehidupan kita, oleh Paulus digambarkan seperti barang bekas yang dekil, kotor, bau, menjijikkan, dan layak dibuang karena dosa dan pelanggaran kita. Karena dosa, kita sudah mati dan layak dimurkai (ay. 1-3). Namun, dari pihak Allah, Dia kaya dengan rahmat dan penuh dengan belas kasihan. Tuhan “mendaur ulang” kita menjadi manusia yang berbeda dari sebelumnya. Dia memiliki rencana dan rancangan yang lain. Allah mau menyelamatkan dan menghidupkan kita kembali dalam anugerah Yesus Kristus (ay. 4-6). Bahkan Allah menjanjikan tempat di Kerajaan Surga (ay. 6). Semua hanya karena anugerah–karena pemberian Allah, bukan karena usaha kita sendiri–sehingga tidak ada yang dapat kita banggakan (ay. 8-10).

Paskah adalah merayakan anugerah Allah di dalam Yesus Kristus yang telah mati disalib menggantikan kita. Peristiwa Paskah tidak bisa dilepaskan dari peristiwa Jumat Agung saat anugerah keselamatan dari Allah diberikan karena Kristus sudah membayar lunas penebusan kita di kayu salib. Paskah sekaligus adalah bangkitnya kita dari kematian oleh dosa. Tindakan syukur apa yang kita lakukan atas anugerah besar yang kita terima itu.

DOSA TIDAK DAPAT MENGHENTIKAN ANUGERAH ALLAH YANG TERUS MENGALIR,
TETAPI ANUGERAH ALLAH PASTI MENGHENTIKAN DOSA.

–JOSEPH PRINCE

Selamat Hari Paskah…!!

Biarlah dihari ini kita mengingat bahwa Hanya oleh Darah Kritus saja kita dibenarkan dan diselamatkan dengan hati yang percaya dan hidup yang taat kepada firman-Nya. Amin!

GBU all 😀

My Favorite Christmas Carol


Mendekati Perayaan Natal yang diperingati setiap tanggal 25 Desember, disinilah saya mempersembahkan 2 buah lagu natal kesukaan saya dari Mariah Carey. Yaitu “Joy To The World” dan “O Holy Night”. Saya rekam tanpa instrument/musical, hanya vokal saja hehehe.
Selamat menikmati, dan Selamat Natal 25 Desember 2014…!!  😀
Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the earth
The Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see

With truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders of His love

Joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Joy to the people everywhere you see
Joy to you and me

Oh, holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the Angels’ voices
Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn’
Fall on your knees, oh, hear, hear the Angels’ voices
Oh, night divine, yeah, oh, night when Christ was born
Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh night divine

Oh, night divine
Oh, night divine
Oh, night divine

Jesus, What a beautiful Name…!!


Jesus, what a beautiful name
Son of God, Son of Man
Lamb that was slain
Joy and peace, strength and hope
Grace that blow all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name


Jesus, what a beautiful name
Truth revealed, my future sealed
Healed my pain
Love and freedom, life and warmth
Grace that blows all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name

You Loved me, before i knew you..

Jesus, what a beautiful name
Rescued my soul, my stronghold
Lifts me from shame
Forgiveness, security, power and love
Grace that blows all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name..

You Rescued me…


bagaimana Anda tidak akan sembuh kalau telingamu dan hatimu disuguhi lirik lagu seperti ini? bagaimana Anda tidak akan bersyukur? bagaimana Anda tidak akan bangga? bagaimana iman tidak akan tumbuh dalam hatimu? Friends, iman itulah menjadi kemenangan yang mengalahkan dunia (1 Yoh. 5:4). Karena Firman yang menumbuhkan Iman dan Iman itulah yang mengubahkan hidup kita. Amin

 

 

Hillsong – You Rescued Me – People Just Like Us 1994

 

You rescued me and picked me up

A living hope of grace revealed

A life transformed in righteousness

O Lord You have rescued me

Forgiving me, You healed my heart

And set me free from sin and death

You brought me life You’ve made me whole

O Lord You have rescued me

And You loved me before I knew You

And You knew me for all time

I’ve been created in Your image O Lord

And You bought me, and You sought me

Your blood poured out for me

A new creation in Your image O Lord

You rescued me, You rescued me

You rescued me and picked me up

A living hope of grace revealed

A life transformed in righteousness

O Lord You have rescued me

Forgiving me, You healed my heart

And set me free from sin and death

You brought me life You’ve made me whole

O Lord You have rescued me

And You loved me before I knew You

And You knew me for all time

I’ve been created in Your image O Lord

And You bought me, and You sought me

Your blood poured out for me

A new creation in Your image O Lord

You rescued me (x6)

 

In Christ Alone, My Hope is Found


In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

Lagu ini sangat merhema buat hidupku hari-hari ini, sebab karena Kasih Karunia saja kita diselamatkan, bukan oleh perbuatan baik kita. Kita tidak layak menerima keselamatan itu, tetapi Allah yang melayakkan kita oleh karena kita percaya kepada Kristus. Rahasia hidup yang berkuasa adalah menerima segala sesuatu yang telah Yesus capai di kayu salib untuk kita. Oleh karena kita percaya kepada Kristus dan dibaptis dalam darahNya dan dalam RohNya yang kudus, kita menerima kuasa dan kasih karunia, sehingga kita dapat hidup berkemenangan, berkuasa, dan mendampaki dunia. Haleluya, Terpujilah Tuhan Yesus.

God is powerful, more than human can imagine ever..!

Lifter of my head
Teach me how to live oh Lord
And Your righteousness

So I pray to You
So I pray to You

Lord, Your name

In the secret place of refuge
Lord, I will sing

So I pray to You, I pray
So I pray to You

Lord, Your name
Is higher than the heavens
Lord, Your name
Is higher than all created things

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams
The name of the Lord

Higher than hope
Higher than dreams

 Isaiah 40:

40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
40:14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?
40:15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
40:16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.
40:17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.
40:18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?
40:19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.
40:20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.
40:21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
40:23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.
40:24 Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.
40:25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
40:27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
