Music Review

Sovereign Grace Music is running some amazing deals throughout the month of February.
Cody downloaded To Be Like Jesus for our kids, and they LOVE it! I love it, too! The lyrics are so incredibly deep and focused on the truths of God's Word. The tunes are catchy and easy to sing. I think I've listened through it at least six times just today! I even kept it going during naptime! Seriously, I don't know who will benefit from learning and applying the truths in these songs more...the kids or the mom!

I was trying to come up with a good summary of what the theme of the CD is all about, but they've already done it! Here's what Sovereign Grace has to say:

To Be Like Jesus contains twelve worship songs that teach the fruit of the Spirit in a creative and memorable way.Through these songs kids will learn that Jesus is our perfect example of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,and self-control. More than that, they’ll discover that we can’t be like Jesus unless we trust in the power of his cross to forgive us and the power of his Spirit to change us.

Did you know that God says your life is supposed to be like a fruit tree?

He’s talking about something much more important than apples, oranges, or bananas. The fruit God wants in our lives is the kind the Holy Spirit produces in us when we know and follow Jesus. It’s the fruit that comes when we turn from our sins and trust that Christ died in our place so we could be forgiven and become like him.

These songs will help you remember what that fruit looks like and how growing in Jesus is the only way to see more of it in your life!

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

This week, God has really challenged me to keep my mind filled with Him! I want to live my life with a God-awareness that changes my actions and reactions. I want my children to have a mom who's driven and controlled by Jesus Christ! This song on the fruit of the Spirit is a great place to fix my thoughts:

Love, joy, peace, and patience too
Grow in those who trust in You
All who put their hope in Christ
Kindness, goodness, faithfulness
Self-control and gentleness
Live in those who have new life

I want to be like Jesus
To walk and talk like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him
I want to love like Jesus
To give my all like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him

I don’t always do what’s right
Jesus lived a perfect life
And for sins like mine He died
Teach me to obey Your Word
Help me to put others first
Holy Spirit, change my life

I want to be like Jesus
To walk and talk like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him
I want to love like Jesus
To give my all like Jesus
I want to live like one who follows Him


So what are you waiting for? Go buy this CD...for the kids!

I love Sovereign Grace! Such good music -- I didn't realize they had kids' CD's. It just so happens that I've been looking for one -- thanks for the heads up!
