I’m not ashamed of the gospel, y’all
It’s the power of God that can save us all
In the gospel, the righteousness of God is revealed
And who lives by faith? The righteous will!
On the Playlist today is an amazing song by Shai Linne titled “Gospel Music” from the “13 Letters” album. This album has various Christian rap artistes summarizing Paul’s epistles. This particular song is breakdown of the letter to the Romans. It is just really great to see this level of creativity used in expressing God’s word. Here’s just a snippet of Shai Linne’s take on Romans:
Awake from your slumber, rise! A letter from the wise
The book of Romans- the Christian faith summarized
By Paul, a bondservant of Christ Jesus
Called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel
Chapter 1: 16-17 is the thesis
Because our sins are colossal, hearts are harder than fossils
That’s everybody’s plight; cant’ solve it- goodnight!
How do sinners get right in a Holy God’s sight?
Amazing is the answer, see- Romans states it candidly
The first three chapters- God’s case against humanity
Whether it’s idolatry or religious hypocrisy
No one can possibly see the charges and say “It’s not for me”
Everybody’s guilty, everybody’s filthy
Before God on judgment day is where everybody will be
For those who believe in Jesus who suffered and died
“It feels so good to be justified”
Check out this song and the whole album in fact.
