If we were made in God’s image, that would mean that we have some of his creative attributes. If that is true, what is man able to create? Watch the amazing video below to find out. It is truly out of this world.

As a side note to my atheist friends, do you think it is possible that this could ever happen by chance?

If like me you are a black Christian, the chances are that you have either come from a black pentecostal type background or you are still part of it. You can read a bit of my background from my About Me section and from my post ‘Black church, White church : The dangers of being in a single-raced church’.  I left that style of church some time ago now and would say that I am more in the reformed camp now. As a person, my goal was one thing and one thing only. I just wanted to hear truth. Period.

The interview below is very enlightening and addresses some of the challenges between historically black churches and gospel-centered theology. Take a listen

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.

For those interested, Lecrae’s new album, The Overdose, is now available . And here’s a blog post from Trip explaining that he’s taking a break from music to become an intern at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.

Around every corner is the lure to consume. A desire to be satisfied. Unfortunately no human being has found anything under the sun that brings satisfaction. So we consume more, and more, and more.  Eventually, we overdose. However, there is hope–if Christianity is our Rehab. In Jesus, satisfaction can be found. Grace, love, peace and hope can be found…and there is always more. Consume more of Jesus. Overdose. 

Rehab: The Overdose officially hits stores and online outlets 1.11.11.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14)

The song ‘Boasting’ has to be my favorite song on Lecrae’s album Rehab. The words speak for them self.

Lyrics

Creation’s groaning lost their hope and feel they always closed in Lots to cope with on the ropes wish they was in the open This broken world is so dim our souls are searching groping For one with hope to hold us close and set goodness in motion I remember growing up in Dallas I thought me and my close kin Was more than straight our folks was great not broke that paper flowed in Not boasting man just saying in my brain I didn’t know then That all went wrong and it just can’t go right like a broke pen My mind was blind and cloaked in but then that foolishness departed I saw this thing’s an ocean and we just tryna swim real far but But can’t nobody float when we ain’t got boats or no fins We need a hero to go in cause our solutions don’t win Education can’t fix it more dough just leads to more sin Medicine is temporary government seems so thin With all these weighty problems that ain’t shrinking they just growing Who’s adequate to save us how about He knew no sin?

Hook:

Like a G5 yeah you rushed to rescue me Took a cross in exchange for a throne to save me You began the work and I know you’ll finish And make all things right when you come back Cause you’re my hero you already saved the day Cause you’re my hero and I know you’re coming back for me

Verse 2:

Follow the steps bro Adam sinned now we all dead so We gotta sentence on our head like death row everything is wrecked All creation is a mess bro In the fullness of time in steps the hero no red cloak He’s Jesus No flashing lights glitz n glam and no cameras He came to serve needy folks and point them to the answer You see Him healing feeding folks and telling them the standard Our most basic need is to be ransomed by Jesus It has first place yeah we separated in the worst ways Even physically peep how the earth quakes Separated socially murder and the worst rapes Even separated from ourselves we in the worst state It’s so major that’s the reason that we need a Savior Cause the root of needs is separation from Creator Jesus came humbly to restore us to our maker And later He’ll restore all that He made bruh He’s Jesus

Verse 3:

God is not pleased man it’s clear that His standards missed The world is running rampant with sin it’s an abandonment Man is feeling stranded feeling hopeless since his banishment God is angry at the distortion and the mismanagement Evil is at work but don’t be thinking He can’t handle it He promised He would do away with all of it dismantle it He’s put up with this damage in His world but He’s promised us That He’ll destroy all His enemies and then He’ll walk with us New Heaven new Earth that’s where all His sheep dwell Cause Jesus succeeded in every part of life that we failed Died the death we couldn’t die paid our price with 3 nails Began the work He promised in the end we all will be well Already beat our enemies and when His Kingdom’s realized All those who oppose Him will see Jesus with some real eyes Deliverance is offered us the hero He is urging us Salvation is exclusive to His people who have turned to trust

Bridge:

I give my gratitude (Jesus). You died to make all things new. My knight in armour when our world is fallen. Your love’s never failing. I find safety in your arms
