New Audio File Uploaded: “Come Lift Up Your Sorrows” and the Two Incidents of the Feeding of the Multitudes – By Michael Card

Come Lift Up Your Sorrows by Michael Card

If you are wounded, if you are alone,
If you are angry, if your heart is cold as stone,
If you have fallen and if you are weak,
Come find the worth of God
That only the suffering seek.

(Chorus)
Come lift up your sorrows
And offer your pain;
Come make a sacrifice
Of all your shame;
There in your wilderness
He’s waiting for you
To worship Him with your wounds,
For He’s wounded too.

He has not stuttered, and He has not lied
When He said, “Come unto me, you’re not disqualified”
When your heavy laden, you may want to depart,
But those who know sorrow are closest to His heart.

In this most Holy Place
He’s made a sacred space
For those who will enter in
And trust to cry out to Him;
You’ll find no curtain there,
No reason left for fear;
There’s perfect freedom here
To weep every unwept tear.

So lift up your sorrows
And offer your pain;
Come make a sacrifice
Of all your shame;
There in your wilderness
He’s waiting for you
To worship Him with your wounds,
For He’s wounded too.

sspmanila audioDo you really believe that?  Can you possibly believe that that thing that hurts you the most may be the most precious thing that you have to offer God in worship?  That God uses sorrow – He uses suffering to save the world?  Could that possibly be true?

Could it be possibly true that the moment when Jesus was most being used by God, He was lamenting.  As He was on the cross, He was lamenting.  So we need to be encouraged – those of us who are sorrowful and confused, and even angry.

David says the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit and a contrite heart, so if you’ve come this morning and that’s all you’ve got, you’ve come to the right place.  

I would like to look at two incidents in the Gospel of Matthew:  the feeding of the five thousand and the feeding of the four thousand.  Let us look at it briefly.

This is an excerpt from Bro. Michael Card’s sermon on September 28, 2014, about the two incidents of the feeding of the multitudes by Jesus (Matthew 14 and John 15 ).  Learn more about this by listening to the complete sermon here.
