Sat., Sep. 9. 2006 12:59am EDT
Here's the fourth clue for our thirteenth CD, "Wordplay," due out November 7. If you look closely at the text below, you'll find many hints as to the identity of one of the 20 songs (and the artist who performed it) featured on that CD.
Jesus wasn't worried about what people thought of Him, but He WAS interested in who people said He was. As Matthew 16:13-20 explains, people had many different theories as to His identity: Some people called Him John the Baptist. Some called Him Elijah. Some people called Him Jeremiah or one of the prophets. But Jesus said He was God, and He did plenty of miracles to prove He wasn't joking. There are still people today who say that Jesus never claimed to be divine. They've come to your threshold carrying their magazines and books, with dreams of converting you as they waited around by your door. But we need some definite answers from Scripture for them. Other Christians have tried to defend their beliefs without looking real hard at their Bible first. That's where they ran into a great big hassle. You've got to keep on keeping on reading the Word of God. We've tackled the topic of the deity of Christ in previous songs, but this song features 16 different New Testament references that you probably wouldn't remember on your own-- but if you play the song enough, you probably couldn't forget -- because all of those verses will come back to you in your sweet time. While you're waiting for this song and the entire "Wordplay" CD to come out, go right now to our "Keep the Change" CD and play track 14 or the track right after that for some immediate assistance. We've been workin' so hard, we can't remember which track number off the top of our heads. Isn't that wild?
