I must say, I am not a big fan of “Christian” music. OK, before you go unsubscribing, and blocking me on your Twitter accounts, hear me out.
There is good music out there by Christian artists. Pretty songs, beautiful lyrics, heart-felt stories told to a tune. But many-a “Christian” song (though they put out a positive message) do not really communicate the centrality of Christ. Instead, they are filled with emotionalism and a try-harder faith. Some songs are just flat-out theologically incorrect.
Not so with Christa. Yes, her music and voice are beautiful, but her lyrics are scripturally solid as well.
You can hear her heart for the lost, her desire for unity within the body of Christ, and her desire to glorify her Master and Creator—all through the transparent lyrics of her songs.
My current favorite song of Christa’s is The Image of God.
Bare feet stepping on glassWe break along life’s pathsOur fear and loss, we bring it all to youSoul-breather, making all things newYou’re making all things new—We come in piecesWe come in fragmentsWe come discoloredTo the foot of the crossOur Maker sees usAll that we have beenBonds us togetherThe Image of God
I hope you will check out her music, and support Christa—I know you will love her!
