New Feature: Theology in Country Music
My favorite genre of Music is Country music. I even use some of the songs and videos of this genre in my sermons. Like most things there is good and bad in everything. In country music there are some songs that have some good theology in them. It is my desire to share some of these songs with you in the coming weeks and months. I will be posting a video along with the spiritual lesson it teaches.
This weeks song is Paul Overstreet’s song: “I Won’t take Less Than Your Love.” The word of God tells us in Mark 12: 28-29
28One of the teachers of the Law of Moses came up while Jesus and the Sadducees were arguing. When he heard Jesus give a good answer, he asked him, “What is the most important commandment?”
29Jesus answered, “The most important one says: `People of Israel, you have only one Lord and God. 30You must love him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.’ 31The second most important commandment says: `Love others as much as you love yourself.’ No other commandment is more important than these.”
The song says how much do I owe you said the man to his wife, to the mother said the son, and the man said to his LORD. Instead of things, possessions, and deeds, all three answer that they won’t take less than their love. Love God with all you have, with all that is in you, with every part of your being. And as you love yourself , do the same to your neighbor,
Enjoy the song, enjoy the lesson, enjoy its truth
Until next time
Don’t give God anything less than your love
