Hillsong United. Awesome.

(Heath Hollandsworth is Graystone’s Program Director.)

{For those who aren’t familiar with Hillsong United, they are a massively awesome worship band from Australia.  We sing lots of their songs at Graystone.  Don’t believe me?  Check out our set lists.}

Last night I went to the Hillsong United concert held in Atlanta.  And you wanna know what?

It was one of the best experiences of my life.

And you wanna know why?

Because I LOVE worship music and I LOVE Hillsong United.

The whole night I felt like a seven year old on Christmas morning.  I seriously did.  I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.  I didn’t sleep the night before.  I got to my seat almost 90 minutes before the concert started.  From the opening song to the finale – which was almost three hours by the way – I felt as if someone had slipped me a drug of some sort.  Imagine a teenage girl seeing Justin Bieber for the first time.  That was me last night.

I loved the atmosphere.  I loved the energy.  I loved the lights.  I loved the ridiculously high decibel level.  But you know what I loved the most?

It was not about the atmosphere.  It was not about the energy.  It was not about the lights.  It was not about the ridiculously high decibel level.

It was about Jesus.

It was about the Cross.

It was about a perfect sacrifice by a perfect person to perfect some very imperfect people.

And if we can find a way to live that out on a daily basis, the world be would be a better place.

Here’s a clip of the concert I took on my phone last night. Excuse my poor singing.

  1. There is nothing better than singing to God and worshiping him! Hillsong did a great job leading us in worship that night!

  2. Amen to that. Could you just imagine what the world would be like? I feel this way a lot of times after leaving our worship services.
