Recommended Resource: Come Weary Saints

Come Weary SaintsCan I recommend a resource that will serve your soul? Sovereign Grace Music just released the CD “Come Weary Saints”, and I really believe that it will deeply encourage you. Here’s how the CD is described:

As Christians, we know that our greatest problem—separation from God—has been solved. Jesus Christ, the only Savior, has taken our sin upon himself, enduring God’s wrath in our place and rising from the dead to assure us of our forgiveness.

But all our problems don’t end when we turn to Christ. We still get sick. Marriages end. Children die. Our plans, great or small, are disrupted. We grow weary in the battle.

Scripture assures us that God is sovereignly using our difficulties as tools to make us more like his Son. “We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Ro 5:3–5) While we know these things are true, in the midst of our hardships we can lose perspective. Problems can loom large, and our hopes can grow dim.

Come Weary Saints is an invitation to redirect your focus to the God whose love has been forever demonstrated at the cross of Calvary. As you listen to these songs, may your faith and joy in the Savior be strengthened for the challenges you face, now or in the future.

For those of you who go to my church, you can get the CD in the bookstore. For the rest of you, you can get the CD here. You can also get a free download from the CD by clicking here.

    I downloaded this CD for free via the free giveaway for Facebook SovGrace Music fans, but received a shipment of CDs today to give away as gifts.

    The past few weeks, I’ve been listening non-stop to this CD, and appreciate so much how the words encapsulate the Gospel and remind me of God’s character, esp. His faithfulness and goodness. My personal favorite (which we sang this past Sunday at church) is “Through the Precious Blood.”

    Thank you, Mark & Stephen, for writing some of these songs; your labor unto the Lord has been such a blessing to me.

    Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement, Hamster. It was a real privilege to get to work on this album. Thanks for getting some of the CDs to give away. God has been so good to give us these wonderful doctrines of grace – the atonement, his sovereignty and steadfast love. What a wonderful God we serve!

    Hope it encourages you guys, Briana!

    I think this is the best one yet — the lyrics are outstanding and thought-provoking in the best of ways, and there seems to me to be a broader sylistic range, and the production values are also great.

    Thanks so much for serving us (I know you guys were involved in the project) with your gifts, time, and effort!
