“This song was created to remind you that we are all a work in progress but standing still is not an option. Keep moving forward despite your current circumstance and allow that energy to push you into your true purpose. “
When you become a Christian, it does not mean that you are automatically a person who can’t do wrong. We are still imperfect people who sin. The difference is that our hearts are different and we truly want to please God.
“Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.”– Romans 7:20
When we have come to know the Lord, that is when the Holy Spirit starts to work within us and in big theological terms, this process is called sanctification.
Sanctification is the process of growing towards holiness. The works don’t save you but it is a result of what happens when you have been born again by God’s grace.
We will all fail sometimes and that is normal. Just don’t forget who you belong to. Failure is not the end, it is part of the process. Don’t give up on trying to be better every day. Remember that everything physically within you will try and stop you from fighting sin.
Our bodies, our minds and our hearts are bent towards sin but the Holy Spirit is there to help us. He convicts us, comforts us and draws us closer to God.
“Good works do not make a good man, but a good man does good works; evil works do not make a wicked man, but a wicked man does evil works.”– Martin Luther
The same can be said, Good people do not go to heaven, People who believe in Jesus Christ do. Your identity is not based on the fact that you can do great and good works, it is rooted in the fact that Jesus died for you, it is not about what you can do for yourself.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.– Philippians 1:6 (ESV)
A very big Thank You to the artists behind this song for bringing this subject to light in your music. Not all of us know the truth and the more we do God’s work, the more He will be glorified.
I pray that your music will touch the arts of all who hear it.
