Oh Lord, You're Beautiful

"No Compromise is what the whole Gospel of Jesus is all about... 'For I tell you...no man can serve two masters...' (Matt. 6:24). In a day when believers seem to be trying to please both the world and the Lord (which is an impossible thing), when people are far more concerned about offending their friends than offending God, there is only one answer...Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him!" — Keith Green, No Compromise album, 1978.

Wow, I can't believe that this song by Keith Green is now 30 years old. I came across this Jesus Culture cover of it and the words of the bridge just really stuck with me and became one of my prayers of late.

"I want to take Your word and shine it all around
But first help me just to live it Lord
And when I'm doing well
Help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is bringing glory to You."
- Keith Green (1953-1982)
