Album Notes
Magnificent Obsession. is a compilation album of worship music written in New Hope Community Church over the last 15 years. We are in the midst of completing our 3rd recording project and we will be releasing seven more singles in the near future. This album contains songs from our first two albums: Fragrance and A Pleasing Offering. The second song on this compilation and the title song of this album is Magnificent Obsession.

I first read the phrase Magnificent Obsession in Oswald Chambers classic devotional, "My Utmost For His Highest." I have always loved the phrase because obsession is never a healthy word in any other context. It can only be magnificent in relationship to God. Since He has shown a level of sacrificial love and cherishing that can only be described as a magnificent obsession towards us, what else can we do but nurture and hunger for a magnificent obsession for Him.

For those of you that like to read about the formative process for worship, our church has served in blighted inner city communities for nearly 25 years. Nothing has been easy in this journey. When we began our ministry our passion was focused on the needs of the shattered lives that surrounded us, but it didn't take long before the brokenness began to break us and the darkness seemed to be swallowing us. It was during this time that the Lord called us to have only one passion, one magnificent obsession. His corrective word to us was: You have taken the first commandment and made it second. You took the second command and made it first. It was this seemingly counter intuitive shift from a social justice driven church to a worship driven church that rescued, sustained, empowered and refreshed us throughout every step of this wild journey. I pray that these songs of worship written in the samarias of NYC might bless and refresh you in your journey. I pray that Christ Jesus might ever be your magnificent obsession.
