Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:18 – And all of this was a gift from God, who brought us back to Himself through Christ. And has given us this task of reconciling people to Him.
Hebrews 10:23 – Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering.
For almost a year now I have had a desire in my heart to start a blog where music is used to illuminate scripture. Truth be told, when I say desire it is a euphemism for nagging in the back of my mind. This is very much something that feels to me as though I have been instructed to do. I have no idea how useful, interesting or popular my simple musings on scripture will be others. However I do know that music is a universal language that everybody understands and can relate to.
Songs have long been used to express thoughts and feelings and will continue to do so until time itself stands still. This blog is simply a continuation of that but from a Christian perspective. Songs of every genre will be featured, both secular and gospel, some will have a positive message while others may not. Nevertheless as the name of the blog suggests, whatever the song chosen a scripture which seems relevant will be paired with the song and discussed. The aim is simply to highlight the fact that though the scriptures were written thousands of years ago it is as true and relevant now as it was then, and hopefully make the word more accessible and relatable to people trying to find out what the bible really has to say on various issues.
The song I have chosen for this first post is called ‘Tell ‘em all’ and is by Christian rapper S.O. featuring Andy Mineo. The message is simple. Christians are called to let others know of the love God has for them (2 Corinthians 5:18 states our mission plainly). The fact that the melodic beat gets your head bopping along and S.O.’s flow is ridiculous certainly makes hearing the message sweeter on the ears. Andy Mineo’s voice on the catchy hook instructs us not to hide the Son but let ‘em all see, and it ends with a plea that we tell ‘em all. This is how I am opting to tell others about Christ’s works and word. How will you?
