There are many talented Christian musicians and bands who have a great message these days... so many, in fact, that it's hard to keep track of them all.
That said, the Christian music of decades ago, particularly Christian Rock, retains its incredible message and its anointing after all these years. Its great music too... if you didn't know it, it sounds as great as today's as it did at the release.
The band from Canada, The Daniel Band, is one such band that you should look up on YouTube. In this day and age, replete with those seeking spiritual guidance and some sort of "self-awareness" and purpose, on this #effectiveSunday, may the simple message that we all need to answer be made real.
As I said, decades later, these words have not lost their relevance or their anointing.
"Let's Get Ready" by The Daniel Band (On Rock album, 1982)
Are you livin' // For your own desires
And are you listenin' // To self made liars
Well, you're invited // To the Promised Land
He'd be delighted // To have you in His plan
So let's get ready // To get away
We're movin' steady // Are you comin' His way
Are you grabbin' // For all you can
You'll end up havin' // No man's land
So give your life to // The Son of Man
And we will find you // In the promised Land
On this #effectiveSunday, pray as the songwriters intended, that living for self doesn't bring about eternal security. Pray that invitations would be extended, that people would not look to man, his perspective, his politics or his Pulitzer's for their security, safety or standing here on earth. Pray the promises of God be made clear as people grab all they can of God, rather than all of man. In the coming hours, may many give their life to the Son of Man.
For those who lose their life to self, will find their life in Christ. For the glory of God. For the cause of Christ.
