If you look at my music category, you will see quite a few posts from artists on Reach Records. The reason for this is because I love the theology packed lyrical content in their music. Two artists on this label are Lecrae and Trip Lee. Below is a video where they talk frankly about their ministry.

    Thank God for the truth you all are declaring through rap. It rejoices my heart to hear brethren declaring God our Savoir’s word. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He cause His face to shine on you. Thank God for His almighty grace that raises the dead and preserves us in faith to persevere to the end. Love in Christ. Eric.
