Music is often motivating. Lecrae’s new CD Rehab: Overdose has a song on it that particularly is.
Song number 3 on this CD is called “Battle Song”. It is very motivating. The song is about being bold in our witness for Christ. Here is an excerpt of the lyrics:
“was engineered in my mother’s womb for God’s glory/ plenty faith in the persecution is inventory/ I been spit in the face, still exhibiting grace/ kicked out many a place, just for sharing my faith/ My belt tight, shoes laced, plus a breast plate/ my war helmet on, now I got my head straight/ the battle’s on but the war is over when Jesus reigns/ and fo’ his name I withstand the pressure and take the pain/ and if they drop us, this promise, we’ll take it to the grave/ that tonight we may die, but to die is our gain”
Now that song motivates me to go live for Jesus. He is our gain!
