I just got the new Casting Crowns album and I love it! No big surprise, I love all their albums. : ) I think it's because I can so relate to their lyrics.
This new song is no exception. How many times has the enemy lied to us about not being Godly enough to speak truth into someone's life.
We can never be perfect on our own. But, we have a perfect God. And He is all we need.
As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect.
Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” Matthew 19:21
Hope you enjoy this song. : )
"Love You With The Truth"
For the longest time, I believed the lie
That I'm not a strong enough believer
To be the friend that can take your hand
And lead you straight to Jesus
I'm waiting on the preachers, singers, and the teachers
To string the perfect words together
But every single time I have to say goodbye
I wonder will this be the last time
I can't call myself your friend and walk away
When we love, we earn the right to speak the truth
When we speak truth, we show the world we truly love
I'm not pointing my finger, I'm holding out my hand
I lay it all on the line now to see God save my friend
Let my life and my words be the proof
I'm gonna love you with the truth
Gonna love you with the truth
Yes, God is love, but God is just
And we are separated in our darkness
So God let Him who knew no sin
To become sin to make us right with Him
Its not about religion or earning Gods forgiveness
Or magic prayers or new behavior
Its all about your heart, He'll meet you where you are
Turn from your sin and trust in Christ as Lord
Jesus is the truth, the life, the way
How I've prayed for this moment, that you would finally see
That God is more than religion, a stained-glass fantasy
And how I've prayed for the courage, for my silent faith to speak
Or that God would just send you a better friend than me
