I have been thinking maybe I should think about ending my fast with contemporary Christian music.
I was so burnt out before, just sick of all the cliched lyrics, the ‘you make me feel so good’ lyrics, the ‘me, me, me, me, me’ lyrics, that I just put my guitar down altogether. Just been wordlessly banging on djembe drums in the meantime. For a long time now.
But in that space I have enjoyed a song or two on occasion, and after putting on some fresh strings on the guitar last week … I am just wondering … maybe I should start digging for some deeper songs? Songs that are more thoroughly grounded in a missional perspective, in a Kingdom of God perspective, in a love in action perspective. Worship songs that are more, well, sacrificial. Christian songs I could actually imaging Christ singing.
So if any of you can point me in the direction of some lyrics to Christian contemporary music that fits that description I am all ears. What are your favourites?
