The nice thing about having teenagers is that it keeps me in touch with what is going on in the world that I really don’t understand as well as I once thought I did. Aging does that to a person and it is doing it to me. Nevertheless, I don’t know if you like this style of music or not, but I really don’t care. This new song entitled Til The Day I Die from TobyMac’s new album, This Is Not a Test, sums up what the Christian and what the transforming addict must believe: we must be sold out to Christ until the day we die. I like to say that the addict must be “addicted” to Jesus! Sold out completely just as the addict was to the drug of choice!
I hope this song encourages you today to have a Colossians 3:1-4 mindset:
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed,then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. (NASB)
