If you notice on my play list on my blog, I added some new songs. The artist is Lecrae, and I really like him! :-)
I know what your thinking...what is a guy like me, a Christian, listening to Rap music for?? Well, the thing about Lecrae is that he is using his gift of rapping for Jesus by reaching out to teenagers all around the world. If you listen to the words closely, they are really great!
I recently bought his CD, Man Up, which is all about how men should act, what makes us a man, what defines us as men, what we shouldn't do, etc. It's really great, and it's a great encouragement for me while I struggle through the same things Lecrae is talking about.
Something Lecrae said before he started singing (this was at a concert I went to) he said, "don't give me the praise and glory for singing; I don't deserve it. Glorify Jesus, I sing to glorify Jesus."
Anyway, I thought I would share what I thought of this group, and why I am adding it onto my play list.
Before I came a dedicated Christian, I loved listening to rap...however it was full of sin and wasn't glorifying God at all. This is glorifying God and the words are fun to listen to because I enjoy this kind of music.
Something Adrian Rogers wrote: "I care not how beautifully you sing; how eloquently you teach; how liverally you give; how cicumspectly you walk - if you are not endeavoring to bring souls to Jesus Christ, you're not right with God. You...are guilty of high treason against the King."
I believe that Lecrae is bringing souls to Christ with their message.
I also like to listen to Country music, but a lot of that is inappropriate. I mean, you got Randy Travis, which are great songs, but his voice gets tiring after awhile. :-)
