10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
A master of contemporary worship: Phil Wickham
I rediscover Jeff Pianki just about every month and he never gets old. Please, please take a listen.
Sin is the monster we love to deny.
It can stalk us, bite a slice out of our lives, return again and bite again, and even as we bleed and hobble, we prefer to believe that nothing has happened. That makes sin the perfect monster, a man-eater that blinds and numbs its victims, convincing them that nothing is wrong and there is no need to flee, and then consumes them at its leisure.
The Get Up Kids influenced my biggest influences. Also, I live in Kansas.
Tehillim was a piece I had to study for my composition class, and I still have not tired of it. That’s saying something.
This is my life theme song.
I’ve been cleaning my room and I keep finding little bits of things I wrote in high school. They are intriguing.
“The silence is breaking every bone,
No wailing cries to bring us home.
We stayed up late,
We owned the night,
Aware that we would never know daylight.
The darkness in our eyes shines bright,
it overcomes the city lights.
I need a God to fix me tonight.
I can’t see past the blood red sky.”
