Behold the Lamb of God

What an incredibly immense gift I have received in the past week through music! Earlier on in the week, a friend sent me Sara Groves' newest CD and later on in the week another friend sent me Andrew Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God CD. This evening my sisters and I got to see both Sara and Andrew (along with Bebo Norman and others) perform in concert on Andrew Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God advent tour. The crowd in the New Milford, CT high school auditorium was relatively small, but the intimacy made the artists and the audience alike, simply and only beholders of Christ, Our God with Us.

Andrew Peterson artistically developed a beautiful musical "true tall tale" which places Christ's birth in the context of the entire Scriptures. In the busyness that these days encompass, what a gift it is to focus on the adoration of the Lamb of God!
