Where response to the holiness of God is trembling and awe, the response to the beauty of God is sweet release.

It has been said, “It is better to love and lost than never to have loved”, but I think is is best said, “It is best to be loved and know that you will never be unloved.”

Worship that touches the heart of God echoes back a strong sense of release… release from the cares of this world, release from the fear that comes from living in a dying world, release from a heart the is oppressed, release from temptations, struggles, doubts, despair and hopelessness.

If we try to gain release outside of our relationship with God built on our worship of God, we build on foundations that will crumble.

Sweet release is not about “loving yourself more”; it is about “dying to yourself more and allowing God to release the Holy Spirit to live in you more.”
