“SIN: Salvation is Necessary” is an album that points to the need for Christ. It is inviting, convicting, encouraging, challenging & everything in between. It is meant to drive you to God, whether you are Christian or not. For those that don’t believe, it speaks on the wrath of God and the condemnation that we face because we have sinned against a holy & righteous God. For the Christian, it challenges the lukewarm & encourages the body. This album demands a response. Not a response to man, but a response to God.”T.Jay
This album is more than a musical composition, it is a sobering message for everyone. One that goes beyond that which our eyes behold each day. It beautifully presents the reality of the coming of the King. When He returns we will be on one of two sides. Some will experience the kindness of God in His grace and others His righteous anger in His justice. Nonetheless, we will see the King reign once and for all.
SIN: Salvation is Necessary is a versatile album by the multi-talented artist T.Jay. He is an artist, Producer, and Engineer who artistically relates the truth of scripture through song. One of the tracks featured on the album is ‘Coming Back’. The Bible tells us that Christ is coming back. This is a reality that requires a response for both Christian and those who do not believe alike.
What weight does the knowledge of Christ’s return carry? There are a few different things that it elicits in the life of the Christian. Firstly, it serves as the greatest comfort in a world tainted by sin and death. The world that we know and live in today, marred by sin, is on the decline. This world is not our forever home. Scripture gives us a picture of what living in the world is like for Christian. They are described as travelers, those who have not built their own kingdom on this earth but rather His Kingdom. That is because His Kingdom is the only one that will last.
Knowing that we are passing by this life on our way toward our true home with Christ creates a new sense of purpose in this life. When we realise that this life isn’t simply for our own advancement we live with urgency. This urgency does not take away from the wonderful gifts God has created for us to share in but it does stir in us a heart and mind fixed on the unseen, the things of God. Let His coming bring you once again to a place of vigilance and reverence, for our King is coming soon and He brings with Him His reward.
“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”Revelation 22:12
On the other hand, it is both a gracious chance and a warning to those who have chosen the world that cannot satisfy them. A biblical reference that T.Jay uses is that Christ will come as a thief in the night. We cannot predict His return. It is not safe to say that we will live the way we desire today and one day turn to God. More importantly, our youth is not an excuse to forsake the Lord. Someday it will be too late to turn to Him. Today is the day of salvation, dear friend!
“Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
At the end of the day, our own works or belief in ourselves as good enough does not cut it. The only acceptable offering to the Father is our trust in the Son who gave His life for us. It is not by works but by faith that we are saved. This is why salvation is necessary. He gave His life for you, live your life for Him.
“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
