     Joel Augé:                          Vol. III No. 1
  Authentic and Natural
July 1, 2008
  

Christian singer, guitarist, songwriter, worship leader—where music can get in the way, worship always trumps ego with Joel Augé. A native of Hamilton, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Ontario between Toronto and Niagra falls, Joel grew up a part of a family in which music was a part of everyday life.

Since his melodies and lyrics flow so naturally together, they allow Joel's message to have more "staying power." After a couple of listenings, you'll remember these songs, the words moving through your spirit as you hum the melodies...and move you to worship too.

Recently signed by Integrity Music, you'll find links to most of his other sites at:
www.integritymusic.com/ecard/ontheblue/. His recording On the Blue is just now released in the U.S. on July 1, 2008.

Session 8: Changed Into His Image (cont.)        Dan Gardner

  

III. THE TREASURE IN EARTHEN VESSELS

II Corinthians 4:5-7
“For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this TREASURE in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

II Corinthians 4:5-7
“...Christ in you, the hope of glory...”

This glory will be revealed to all the world as we are changed into His image. Read Haggai 2:6-9. Let the glory of the Lord fill your temple!


IV. THE BEHOLDING PROCESS

  1. As you praise and worship the Lord, set your heart toward Him. Allow yourself to bask in the glory of His presence. Stand in awe as you look upon His beauty, holiness, all that He is!
  2. This kind of beholding requires a closeness to God; not just standing at a distance and seeing His works, but close communion with the Lord.
  3. Even though our human minds cannot fully comprehend the wonder of our God, our spirits are changed, and our minds are transformed. (Heart after God, Mind of Christ).
  4. Don’t be apprehensive to allow God to change you because you feel “unworthy” or because of past failure. The transforming power of the presence of the Lord is not given because of our worthiness, but because of His mercy and grace. As we seek Him with open, honest hearts, he CHANGES us because He loves us. Isaiah 6:1-7
  5. A consistent lifestyle of worship will bring about the change “from glory to glory”, step by step, day by day. Remember from Session I that a “WORSHIPER” becomes like the one worshiped!
