Greater Things are Still to be Done

We sang the “God of this City” by Chris Tomlin today at church today. I really like the song and thought I’d share the lyrics with you.

You’re the God of this City
You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation
You are

You’re the Light in this darkness
You’re the Hope to the hopeless
You’re the Peace to the restless
You are

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater thing have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City

As we sang this today, I found myself thinking not of Winston-Salem, but of Napoli, the city that was home to me for three years. My eyes filled with tears as I thought about the 4 million people living there, most of whom don’t know they have a wonderful Savior who gave up everything for them.
I’m not saying I think the people in Napoli are any more lost than the ones right here in Winston-Salem, but my heart is still broken for that city and probably always will be because a little bit of me will always be there. There is something incredibly powerful about standing on top of San Elmo Castle and looking down at a sea of apartment buildings that are filled with an ocean of people. For that lostness, I weep…I cry out…I hope that God will move and use a country that saw some of the first Christian churches so long ago become alive with the power of the Holy Spirit and experience a revolution of life change through Jesus Christ.
