A Late Monday Mix

Needing some more music for your soul? If you have never listened to Beautiful Eulogy you are in for a treat. Beautiful Eulogy is made up of three brothers in Christ who love the Lord and long to make Jesus known through music. Im not just talking about light frivolous music that mentions the name of Jesus here and there, but rich, deep, theological truths put to music that will spur you on to follow Jesus. Their songs range from clinging to Christ as our only hope in suffering, to songs longing for heaven and the return of Christ. You will find songs that will expose the weight of your sin and guilt before a holy God and songs that make you marvel at the magnitude at God’s grace for us through Christ. The best part? They FREELY give all they music away. So please check them out here

Monday Mixes

It has certainly been long overdue, but here is an excellent album to feed your souls while you are all in school limbo. In it, Shai Linne delivers a hard-hitting, soul-stirring album about God and his attributes. Attributes of God cover God’s justice, mercy, love and so much more. So take a break from studying, or even make it your study music, and fill your minds with the riches of Christ.

Free Music!

One band that has greatly encouraged my soul is the Gray Havens. They have been described as the CS Lewis of music. They have an amazing ability to write stories that reflect the glories of the Gospel. And right now they are giving three of their albums out for FREE! Get them here.

Here are the lyrics of one of my favorite songs to give you a taste.  

Train Station

There’s a train station inside of this train,
Where the people go to try and escape,

And with anxious eyes, we stand in line,
Til’ the cold ground shakes,
To tell us it’s time for the trains,
Yes it’s time for the trains to stop,

Some were steel and some were gold,
And each conductor raved,
They shouted buy your tickets,
Save your souls,
But one conductor sang,

He shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost,

So the rich men laughed and they walked away,
But the poor ones felt that they should stay,
So they told all of their friends,
They told even strangers, til there ten thousands,
Of people said come let us see,
This scandalous train that claims to be free,
Just let him speak,

So he drew a picture on the ground,
The stone moved just like sand,
He said throw your tickets on the floor,
I’ll give you mine instead,

And he shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost,

The soldiers rushed in like a flood,
Wild eyed looking for blood,
They said show us the one who lies, deceives,
And claims his trains of grace are free,

Cuz we’ll take his body to the tracks,
And nail him there so he never comes back,
Yeah, we’ll take his body to the tracks,
And nail him there so he never comes back,

And then the ground began to shake,
We felt the stone beneath us break,
And he came back, he came back anyway,

And there was love, And there was love

And he shouted You, come follow me,
I’ll buy your tickets and I’ll pay your fees,
Cuz I know what you cost,
Believe me without this train you will be lost

Does the way we worship matter?

Last week I listened a sermon by Art Azurdia. It was a humble reminder of the reality we worship a God who is holy, merciful… but non the less to be feared… He is not a safe God… but oh he is a good God. And that reality… must affect our worship of Him.

It was a challenging sermon to myself and I hope and pray it would benefit your souls as well. You can listen to the sermon here.

Monday Mixes (1 Day Late)

Its another Monday… well Tuesday. But here is this week’s Monday Mixes! Its from Hip Hop/Spoken Word artist Jackie Hill Perry.

Here is a a brief biography

Jackie Hill is known as a poet but she is simply a sinner saved by a gracious God.Born in St.Louis, Mo on June 21, 1989, she was raised with a knowledge of God due to some close family members influence on her young life. Growing up, Jackie was molested by a family friend, bullied in school, and fatherless, which accompanied with a inherent separation from God, led her into a lifestyle of rebellion, homosexuality, drug use, porn addiction, and everything wicked.Yet, she was loved and desired by a God who predestined her to know Him (Eph1:11), Who died in her place while she was yet a sinner (Rom 5:8), and ressurected from the grave after 3 days. This same God spoke to her in October 2008, while she was 19, revealing to her that her lifestyle would ultimately be the death of her (Rom 6:23), if she chose not to walk away, but also, that her experience in that same lifestyle would bring hope and freedom to many others. At that moment, after much debate with God, she BELIEVED all that He told her and made the decision, to turn from her sin and give her life completely to Jesus. Now, after walking with the Lord for four years, at the age of 24, God has allowed Jackie to witness to thousands of people, thru the gift of poetry, about the grace and power of God! And her life’s goal is to see people believe in Jesus for the IMPOSSIBLE!

Her album is called “The Art of Joy.” Its an album that exposes the human heart, and exposes the only cure of our great problem, Christ crucified. She also boldly directs us to find our joy not in ourselves or our circumstances but the finished work of Jesus Christ on our behalf.

You can find it here. Enjoy!
