Once We Were Not A People

It’s been a while, no? I thought I’d post another of my songs up here but they take me so long to record! It’s a song that has pretty much run it’s course at church, seldom used, so I’m posting a badly played, badly mixed demo up here mainly for posterity.

We were doing a series at Northwest Church about the doctrine of the church. One lunch time whilst at work I got inspired and looked up a whole chunk of verses about the church and the one that resonated most was:

1 Peter 2:10

” 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
