God-Honoring Rap: Beautiful Life, Persecuted Church and Man Up
I’ve mentioned before my respect for Lecrae, a Christian rapper. Recently he told his Twitter followers and Facebook fans that he was reading If God Is Good, and posted a photo of the book, calling me a “bad man.” Makes me smile. He’s a good [bad] brother, with an incredible outreach.
Watch this great five minute video with his testimony:
Pray for Lecrae, would you? He has an amazing platform, and is surely hated by the enemy of our souls.
Here are three more videos, featuring Trip Lee, Lecrae and others. Whether or not you like hip hop or rap, I hope you can appreciate young men who are using rap for God’s glory, and calling a generation to the cross of Jesus.
Check out this Trip Lee song, not a live video, but pay attention to the prolife lyrics on the screen. (Andy Abelein, Barlow High School class of 2012, recently recommended this to me. Speaking of which, I graduated from Barlow in the first class that attended there four years. It was a mere...drum roll....40 years ago, in 1972.)
Here’s Trip Lee again, this time in full video with Lecrae, singing out about the persecution of Christians around the world:
Finally, a video with a group of male rappers, including Lecrae and Trip Lee, this time calling upon young men to “Man Up!”
To these musicians and others: Brothers, may you stay strong, stay pure, stay outspoken, and stay close to Jesus.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. —1 Corinthians 10:31
