Let’s Make a Stand

standing-firm-in-the-gospel-blog-post-980x413

You may already know by now that I like to watch stuff on YouTube. I recently stumbled on a video called Decoding The Book of Revelation. And I was like… Hmm, interesting! Revelation is one of my favourite books in the Bible.

After watching it I was thinking, geez the Christians in the early days were so bold and brave; they wouldn’t deny Jesus even when they were facing death. Would I be able to stand firm if my faith in Christ is being tested? The monkeys in my brains jumped frantically before I nodded my head.

Jesus said this:
“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
Revelation 3:15‭-‬16 NLT
Dear readers, let’s make a stand today whether hot or cold. I personally think that I don’t have anything to lose. For I’d rather spend my life with God in heaven than the eternity in hell! Jesus was having you and me in His mind when he was tortured and then crucified on the Cross. He bored all our sins and shame because He loved us so much. Yes, that was fierce. Yes, that was bold and brave. He chose to be with us, now it is time to choose Him.
I’ve made up my mind. ❤

Worshipping The French Way

GLORIOUS-ELECTRO-POP-LOUANGE-COVER

France is well known for their wine, cheese, cuisine, arts, museums, monuments, high fashion, great perfumes, skin cares, tour de France etc (Oh, did I forget the French kiss?!?). But I am still in search of the French Worship. Since I am living in France for quite a while now, I am yearning for a unique worship i.e. worshipping in French, the French way.

Looking for French Worship groups or bands to me is like looking for a needle in a haystack; it’s so hard to find! Many times I’d stumble on the songs that are sung by Canadian or African francophones or the French songs that have been translated from English. They are pretty good, but I just wish that France would produce more of their own original worship music.

Fortunately, I at least found one of the French Worship bands that is original and relevant. Oh, what a relief! Glorious (the band) is formed in 2002 by three brothers from Valence; Aurélien, Benjamin and Thomas Pouzin. Their worshipping style is electro-pop, which is one of my cups of tea. They recently launched their new single from the album called Église Lyon Centre (Lyon Centre Church), which will be out during Easter next year.

Here is a little taste of Glorious: Notre Père (Our Father).

Here is the lyric video.

This song is simply extracted from The Lord’s Prayer. It expresses our hearts as God’s children to our Heavenly Father. I find French itself, is a beautiful language. The language gets even more fascinating when it is sung as worship. I think God is happy when He hears His children singing to Him in many languages. French is one of them and it should be sung as it is more often.

Anyway, if you fell in love with this French Worship, feel free to find out more bands at Rejoyce Musique which launches a few French Christian bands. Yes, like I said earlier, there are not as many French Worship or Christian bands out there. I wish there will be more to come, in Jesus’ name.

Music gives you wings

Music…to me is like an energy drink; I feel great after consuming it.

The Good Christian Music Blog is where I discover new bands and the taste of new sounds. It’s awesome how the GCMB provides so many genres of music. You can easily choose different kinds of tunes through their playlists. I usually select one and let it roll.

So far I’ve been into Electronica and Hip Hop lately. They are my favourite source of energy. Like after waking up in the morning, I’d turn on some beats that lift me up and I’ll be ready for the day. Christian music makes me feel like as if I have wings; I can stay high up all day and my heart is happy.

Here are 2 samples of Electronica that I really like. They are easy listening. Every time I put on my favourite headphone and sit on my sweet spot, I’d be gone into the space.

Below are Hip Hop samples. I hand picked the ones that ain’t so agressive. Just in case you cannot handle the beats so I choose the 2 songs that would rather soothe your ears. Hope you enjoy them and feel great afterwards.

If you dig the tunes, feel free to subscribe, like and share The Good Christian Music Blog’s Youtube Channel.👍

Extra! Extra!

I recently found an upbeat song by Lecrae which has been released this year. Man, it’s totally awesome!


This video reminds me of a poem that I wrote many months ago. My poem is about calling up all creative beings to rise up. Why did I write that? Well first of all, I believe everyone is creative; God’s put His creativity in us. It is like, like father like son thing, if you know what I mean. Secondly, I simply want to encourage people to fan up their passion and live life the fullest.

You know it is amazing how we are made so different; some of us are made to compose music and sing beautifully, while the others may be good at creating films, sculpting, painting and anything else. I believe that God has designed us for Himself and calling people back to Him (our Creator / Father) is our purpose.

Here is the poem: For The Time Is Now

When you hear some melody in your head,
Don’t be afraid,
Pick up a pen and write it down,
For the time is now.

When you see yourself move along the beats,
Don’t just imagine it,
Go on dance and make your Daddy proud,
For the time is now.

When you are drawn to colourful things,
Don’t skip the ideas that ring,
Grab a paintbrush and paint better than Picasso,
For the time is now.

When you find yourself pretending, miming, making noises,
Don’t stop that joy,
Get a camera and take a bow,
For the time is now.

O rise up all you creative ones!,
God has given you breath so you can touch (the others),
Go on spread like fire brighten up the world,
For the time is now.

Folks, if you are reading this know that you are so creative. What is it that triggers you or stirs you up? Do you like to build? Do you wanna dance along with the beats when you hear music? Do your fingers move along your air instrument when you hear some melody in your head? Do you like to sing with all your guts with or without people seeing you?

Let us fan up the fire in us…
