I recently got a new CD. It is truth set to a solid beat - it connects deeply with my soul. I LOVE it. It's like no CD i've ever heard - and there is one simple reason why...
This particular CD is written from a new persepective than most christian CD's. Instead of the artists writing about their brokenness and their need for Jesus to meet them and comfort them (don't get me wrong - those songs are powerful and needed and have changed me) they write as forgiven and redeemed children of God striving to live out their new lives boldly.
The CD is looking out the front window, rather than the back door.
The songs are anthems of grace, mercy, love, freedom, and passion. Passion to live out your life boldly because you have been forgiven - to get up and live your new life. To stop running in a circle of sin and repentance that you can never get out of - but to realize the truth, that we are forgiven for good - and to start living as a forgiven child of God.
The songs are a challenge to make a difference - to live a new life. They are like cold water to a thirsty soul.
stop going through the motions and truly start living.
You are loved. You are forgiven. You have been redeemed.
Go love. Go forgive. Go invite others to redemption.
