When choosing a song to share near Valentine’s Day, I wanted to find one that could really capture God’s love for us. While the rest of the world is thinking about carnal and romantic love expressed by humans, I think it’s a great time to remember that we wouldn’t even know the extent of true love if not for God sending our Savior.
I’m vaguely aware that there is some controversy about this song, the singer, and its lyrics. Well, the song is about four years old now and it was the darling on Christian radio stations for a long time before anyone had anything negative to say. I don’t know the personal lives or specific beliefs of any other artist that I listen to. I don’t think that’s an important facet when it comes to music that allows me to worship God.
As for arguments that God’s love can’t be reckless because He is perfect and omniscient, the spirit of the song is clearly trying to illustrate a way for our human minds to capture it. No human could love like that. We’d be too worried about self-preservation and living in fear of rejection and failure. We’d be hurt or holding a grudge after the love of our lives repeatedly spurns us.
I write Romance and God’s love for his creation is the greatest love story of all. If you need a hero in your life, rely on God!
For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.Matthew 18:11-14
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
One thought on “Music Monday– Reckless Love”
Thanks for sharing.
