Ryan Hylton is one of our own from Hydration Records. He is a Christian Artist based in the UK with an authentic style and powerful voice. When I first heard his music, every single song made it to my playlist because Ryan does not only provide us with quality music but with words, we can reflect on.
His latest single Sweet For A While has just done it again! In this new song, he addresses sin in such a unique way. Sharing with us that immediate gratification can only last so long and that there is a desire within each and every one of us that can only be fulfilled by God himself.
Ryan expresses how temptation can come and he shows us that we can overcome it. Rejecting sin right there when we want it most.
We should be like Joseph in Potiphar’s house and flee. Ryan also shares a glimpse of his testimony in this song through the following lyrics:
“Bowed my knee to Christ when I was 18, Fell short of his glory in my late teens, Oh you taste, so good I understood your intentions, So I’ve taken idol time put on detention. Jesus shed his blood for me, Yeah He hung up on a tree, Only he defeats the enemy.”– Ryan Hylton, Sweet for a While
I believe these lyrics are words that are there to remind us that there is someone bigger than the temptation and the struggle that we see. There is an eternal consequence for our choices and Ryan made the right choice. He chose Jesus, He bowed before Him and look what God has done with Him…
