Friday morning I was on my way to CBN for a day of work. As I was driving I decided to listen to The Glory of it All by David Crowder. I’ve heard it countless times before, but I ﬁgured I would listen to it for speciﬁc parts to figure out what I would play when we introduce the song to Forefront. As I listened to the words of the song they started to affect me. By the time the song got to the bridge I was in tears.
The song is about rescue. Jesus came and paid the ultimate price so that “we [would] never be the same.” He came and He changed everything. As the words ﬂoated around the car I began to wonder…do I live a life totally changed by Jesus? Or am I just the same sinner I was before I knew Christ? Does His sacriﬁce matter enough to me that my life would really change?
In this moment I was reminded of why I do what I do. Music has the power to completely break me down…no matter where I am or what I am doing. I do what I do because I know that if music can reach me like this then I know it can reach others too. My prayer is that people would come on Sunday morning and sing like it meant everything. That they would show up and simply seek to be in the presence of Jesus so that they would never be the same.
