I had the honor of being in all of our weekend worship services at Trinity this weekend. Our congregation loves the song “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury. You could literally hear the congregation singing louder than our worship team during the chorus of the song. I imagine this is what Heaven will be like – all of us worshipping!!! LOUD!! POWERFUL!!! FULLY SURRENDERED!!!
Every time I hear this song the first few chords of the music immediately postures my heart to want to scream “no shadow you won’t light up, no mountain you won’t climb up, no wall you won’t kick down, no lie you won’t tear down” at the top of my lunges. It’s like screaming it makes me feel like I’m making sure the enemy hears it and knows there’s no way he can trick me from living and walking in God’s LOVE!!
On his facebook, Cory shares the scripture that inspired this song:
Luke 15: Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”
So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
I’m that one. The one that was lost. Yet he came to find me. He sought me out. He wrecked me with His love! His love changed me. His love lit up the shadows of doubt in my life. Doubts that said I was not valuable. His love climbed the mountain of loneliness in my soul. His love kicked down the walls of pain in my life. Pain I had tried to find solutions for in ways that just left a greater void. His love tore down the lies I had believed that I was not worthy of love. That I would never be chosen. HE CHOSE ME! He sought me out and set me free. He gave me a new life. He set my feed upon THE ROCK of CHRIST JESUS. He gave me a firm footing in Him. I’m enraptured by his RECKLESS LOVE! What about you? What shadow, mountain, wall or lie does this song cause you to declare? Share in the comments!
