Rock On

Last night I attended a concert featuring Skillet and Creed, two bands who know how to rock the message of God. Each band played their hits, as well as lesser known songs, which the crowd enthusiastically welcomed. It was an awesome concert, with two new-to-me songs standing out. Both songs have a deeper meaning explained by each lead singer.

Skillet’s lead singer John Cooper told the story of a young girl sharing a story of thoughts of suicide with him. John did a great job of storytelling, but I’ll allow the song to tell the story. Listen to The Last Night with lyrics here.

Then Scott Stapp of Creed shared how at age 17 he started running away – from reality, from responsibility, from God. He ran until he was too tired to run. It was at this point he found the inspiration to pen the song Faceless Man. Listen to it with lyrics here.

May each of us find places to share God so clearly with those that need to hear, no matter our profession or skill set.
