Casting Crowns...Metaphorical Meanings

Has anyone ever heard the song 'Here I Go' by Casting Crowns? The message is so true to all of us at times. Throughout a routine day how many people would you say you see that you will never see again? How many people do you see that you have seen everyday? How many people have you shared the gospel with and of which of the two groups are they?

So many times we forget the reason we're alive, to spread the good news and give glory and praise to God. How do you know you will ever see those people again? Maybe you're the only Christian they know. We talk to strangers about the weather and other things that don't even matter, like the price of gas, it changes so much that there's no point in talking about it. But God never changes and neither does his message.

FAITH is starting up and I want to encourage all to take the class. This will be my first time attending the class and I'm excited to see how it changes my perspective and my conversations with strangers and other lost friends.

A very convicting point. Thanks for the post.

this is when jason or andy says, "casting crowns, more like casting frowns." so i am going to go ahead and say it for you to save you the trouble.

Bro, that song is one of my favorite songs because of the point you just made. We're not afraid to talk to someone about sports, the news, the weather, or anything else secular; but when it comes to Jesus, we're afraid. I really wonder why that is? What are we so afraid of? I mean in all honesty, where does that put us in a relationship with Christ? Jesus says that those who deny him before man, He will deny. He gives us the command to take the gospel to the nations. Where do we truly stand if we're not obedient to one of the most simple commands? I've often wondered if one can even be a Christian without feeling compelled to share the gospel. How can I say Jesus has changed my life or that He is my Lord if I don't obey Him? It just doesn't make sense.
