This week’s Good Music Friday is full of today’s contemporary worship. Marvin Sapp, Bethel Music, and Hillsong UNITED are great examples of uninterrupted entry into God’s presence through song and they take me there every time! Check out some of my favorite songs right now and tell me your worship go-to tunes in the comments below.
Marvin Sapp just has a certain way of dropping you to the floor and dragging you to the altar. The pure sincerity in his voice makes you want to stop and listen. Click HERE to check out his song actually written and produced by R. Kelly titled “Listen.” When he starts shushing—lays me out.
Reckless Love by Bethel Church thooooo!?!?!?!
I first heard this song at my church, One Church LA and it has since become my anthem. I usually have an anthem for each season. A couple of years ago it was “Intentional” by Travis Greene. Prior to that it was Bethel Music’s (they just have a special anointing) “You Make Me Brave,” and for the past two weeks or so I’ve been Reckless in Love with the Lord. I mean just read these words:
Oh the overwhelming, never-ending reckless love of God/Oh it chases me down, fights til’ I’m found, leaves the 99/I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still you give yourself away
There’s no shadow you won’t light up, mountain you won’t climb up, coming after me/No wall you won’t kick down, lie you won’t tear down, coming after me.
I’ve recently learned the power of talking back to the enemy and letting him know he has no place here. Hillsong UNITED does just that in their song, “Not Today.” They’re basically like “not today satan, get behind me! Check it out below!
