On My One One Six

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Today happens to be Jan. 16. My guess is that unless it's your birthday, anniversary, or the birthday of someone you love, there is nothing that makes today's date different than any other day. 

There are a growing number of people who are coming to see the significance of the numbers 116...I've talked about the guys that got this started a lot on this blog. They have become some "big" names in Christian Hip Hop. Inspired by the men behind Cross Movement Records, men like FLAME, Lecrae, Tedashii, Sho Baraka, and Trip Lee along with DJ Official, Ben Washer, BJ Thompson, and so many others got together to produce music that communicated the gospel that had saved them. 

They valued quality beats just as much as they were passionate about delivering quality lyrics. 

They have influenced others in the industry as well as those on the other side of the booth. They have gone their own ways, created new record labels, signed new artists, and committed to ministering life-on-life in their own churches. 

The backbone behind what they men have come to love is the God that loved them first. By His mercy and grace, God brought them to SEE the truth of His Word and the meaning of the good news. 

Each man has his own story and yet each man has one thing in common and that is that the Word of God that brought Him from death to life. 

Romans 1:16 is the tie that binds them first to God and then to each other. The words of Romans 1:16 gives them purpose while they here on this earth. 

Today, we can all come together to celebrate the work that our God has done and is doing! Today, we can exhort one another to remember the mission. 

And with that, here's a little video of what very well may be my favorite song of 2013...

He's given us something to say. His Word is there for us to DRINK. Having tasted living water, 

we OVERFLOW what we now know. Overflowing, the Word brings LIFE to those who hear.
