My initial draw to new music is the beat. I can listen to the beat without fully or clearly deciphering the lyrics. It’s after I take the time to stop, focus, and go find the lyrics, that the song takes on new meaning. It’s this deep listening that determines whether the song stays in my playlists and/or how much playtime it gets.
One such song is Artist Janine’s Call Yourself a Lover. Although this song came out in 2020, it HITS hard because it’s not only representative of our nation, but of the Body of Christ, as well.
My tears started because regardless of what I hear or see, I can always relate it to the spiritual. We, the Body of Christ, HAVE TO BE THE DIFFERENCE nonbelievers and the unchurched SEE – we have to BRIDGE the gap … Our churches should represent the diversity of heaven (our flesh is corruptible and will return to the dusk) where our spirit will reside for eternity.
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
