NEW SONG: RECKLESS LOVE
Our new feature song is called Reckless Love. It was written by Cory Asbury and covered by many artist lately. Probably because it's such a meaningful lyric. I love the this line: I couldn't earn it. I don't deserve it. Still You give Yourself away. Oh the overwhelming, never-ending reckless love of God.
This song also makes reference to Jesus' parable of the lost sheep. He is like a shepherd who would do anything to rescue His lost sheep. You can read it in Luke 15 below:
1-3 By this time a lot of men and women of doubtful reputation were hanging around Jesus, listening intently. The Pharisees and religion scholars were not pleased, not at all pleased. They growled, “He takes in sinners and eats meals with them, treating them like old friends.” Their grumbling triggered this story.
4-7 Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.
