#SELAHRECAP: THE GRAND EQUATION

       

Ever thought about how many additional rules there are to being saved than the ones that are already in the bible? From what not to wear to where not to go, people have come up with A LOT of things that Christians aren’t supposed to do. Yet, a lot of these rules can become a burden to those trying to adhere to them. 

This week, we’ve been talking about not getting hung up in denominations and really focusing on Christ, but we know that this can be difficult with the pressures of family and the commitments that you have at the churches you attend.

Yet, isn’t your relationship with Christ more important than any denomination or choir membership?

Jesus commanded us in Luke 10:27, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” No where in that commandment does it say love a denomination. He said love Him with our whole being and love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Simple.

Being a follower of Christ isn’t simple, don’t get me wrong, but it sure isn’t as hard as we have made it out to be. Jesus simply wants us to love. He wants us to love Him. He wants us to love other people. And He wants us to love ourselves.

If we can get that in our system, living this Christian life will be so much more enjoyable.

So, if you find yourself boggled down with the pressures of pleasing people within a certain denomination, maybe it’s time you adopt a new denomination. The denomination of Jesus + You.

In this denomination, your relationship with Christ is the primary focus and the only rules you follow are the ones Jesus sets for you. And greatest of all, it is a denominations whereLOVE reigns supreme.

Isn’t that a grand equation?

Jesus + You = Everything

Born with a God given talent for music in general, the Los Angeles raised M.C. Bizzle (born Mark J. Felder) wrote his first rap verse at no older than 8 years old and also started writing R&B around that same time. He, now at 26 years old, has 18 years under his belt as a writer and the experience shows in his sound and versatility.

Bumps mission is to see the lives of people transformed by the message of the gospel through the vehicle of Hip Hop.

Now the band, which has been together for about ten years, has grown beyond its label as “a Christian band” and become nationally known as a great rock group that tackles such serious themes as God and love. Their music is appealing to both devout Christians who study the Bible and young teens who devour Rolling Stone.

And leave the world in wonder of the change
The change inside of me
And I will never stop believing
That you are the reason for this change
The change inside of me

#SELAH
One of the most overlooked but probably most insightful words in the bible is “Selah”. You’ll find it here and there at the end of a verse, group of verses, or even a chapter. The translation of the word literally means “PAUSE, and think on that”. Well, that’s exactly what we want to do for the next month. Sometimes we can so caught up in what we’re doing that we don’t take the time to learn from what we’ve done. That being said, this month we want to offer you the opportunity to PAUSE & THINK ON some of the inspirational music and content we’ve been pushing your way since April 2011. We’ll be pulling the best of the best from our archives and re-posting for you to revisit and renew your mind with. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean we’re running dry. We’ve got ALOT on the way for you and some big changes coming down the pipe, but before we take you into the newness of what’s to come we want to make sure you’ve fully received all that what has come had to offer!

PRESIDENTIAL ANOINTING: {SEAN SIMMONDS}

Sean Simmonds is a Christian urban and hip hop music mogul who is on fire. Songwriting, producing, singing and acting keeps him busy in between running a record label, being a husband, father and a humanitarian. The Toronto, Canada native, who now calls Atlanta, GA his home, is arguably the most creative and fastest rising artist and executive in Christian music.

Sean’s career has been a steady build over the years and he is now on a fast track forward as a result of faith, hard work and determination. He also continues to boldly speak truth in the midst of all that has shaped and shaken in his life. This has laid the foundation for God to place doors of opportunity all around him. “If you come to a certain place that you know you wouldn’t be without Christ, you will worship Him in the truth of knowing where He brought you from,” explains Sean. “If it’s something you’ve worked hard for and lost or felt a lot of pain, your experience will dictate your outward cry to God.” This has been the conduit for Sean creative talents.

The beginning of his career was determined by a choice he didn’t make. At 17, he declined a six-figure R&B deal from a major record label, instead opting to enroll in college, where in college at the age of 20 he had a life changing experience when he had a baby out of wedlock. When all looked lost that was when God took a strong hold of Sean and repositioned his purpose and spiritual direction. He experienced a conviction and decided that his calling was to spread the message of the gospel.

#PRAISEBREAK:

With such an unparalleled work ethic and drive, you can call him a mogul, the quintessential artist or a man on a mission. He is that dude! He is Sean Simmonds. GOTTA LOVE THAT!
