I've been listening to a lot of Shai Linne lately.
Don't know who that is? No Worries.
I didn't either before I met Jonny. When he first told me he listened to Christian Hip-Hop, I was at a loss for words.
It is slowly growing on me. I'm talking real slow, like two years kinda slow.
A lot of it seemed (and some still does) cheesy. A lot of it, I couldn't even decipher. But I've go to say, a lot of it is truly edifying, and also very convicting.
This week we've been listening to Shail Linne's new album 'The Attributes of God' and I really cannot recommend it enough. It's chalk full of biblical truth about the awesome, patient, sovereign, compassionate, merciful, just, faithful, jealous, holy, self-sufficient God.
The beginning of this song has a wonderful excerpt from a sermon of John Piper. It was an excellent reminder of just how sinful I am.
Billions of people can easily think of big, disgusting habits as sinful.
But what about your thoughts?
Do you even give the God of the universe a thought?
Just as sinful as those big, disgusting habitual sins, is the failure to give honor to His name and the neglect to praise the glorious God.
Here's the track.
