It is always an honor to spotlight some of the leaders of the modern era of Christian worship music.  Paul Joseph Baloche, an ordained minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born on June 4, 1962 in Camden, New Jersey.  For 30(+) years, he’s been a highly influential musician, worship leader, and singer/songwriter, with a strong calling to teach and edify other worship leaders and musicians.  He pastored Community Christian Fellowship, Lindale, Texas, for 25 years and moved to New York City in 2015, where he currently resides with his wife, Rita.

He’s a multiple Dove Award winning songwriter who travels the globe teaching and leading others in worship.  Over the years, he recorded 12 albums for Integrity Music and through, he developed a series of Master Classes designed to equip and train leaders and worship teams worldwide.

Over his career, he wrote or co-wrote many successful songs for other musical artists, including Michael W. Smith, Matt Redman and Don Moen.  Some of the more prominent songs include Open the Eyes of My Heart, Hosanna, Today Is The Day, Above All and A New Hallelujah.

As one who is always ready to worship God in music, I’d like to share a couple Paul Baloche worship songs with you.  His song, Open The Eyes Of My Heart, is known worldwide and has probably been played by nearly every US-based worship team at least once!  There’s no better time than today to adjourn to the “secret place” to listen and worship along with this song – or share it with others!

Here is a live version of Paul Baloche’s Open The Eyes Of My Heart:

Here are the lyrics:

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You

Because many of his songs give such incredible praise to God, here’s a second Paul Baloche song celebrating the love and salvation we have only through Jesus Christ!  Here is a live version of Because Of Your Love (the lyrics are in the video):

Scripture to consider:

Proverbs 21:2 (NKJV)
“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, [b]ut the Lord weighs the hearts.”

Ephesians 1:17-18 (NKJV)
“…that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened…”.

Ephesians 2:4-5 (NKJV)
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)…”.

1 John 4:8 (NKJV)
“He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

Praise Jesus forevermore!
