Song Series: Because He Lives (Amen) Fresh Start Your Day

Because He Lives (Amen)
Fresh Start Your Day with the Power of Praise

Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 
- Romans 6:4

We sing "Because He Lives" by Matt Maher regularly at FBCR. It has a beautiful melody and is easy to follow lyrically; but, what makes the song so powerful is the message of courage for today and hope for tomorrow.

I love hope-filled songs, don't you? Especially now. I'm so sick of being inundated with negative campaign adds that leave me feeling like there's no one worth voting for. As a matter of fact, what makes being a Worship Arts Pastor so incredibly awesome is that I'm  forced to learn and lead hopeful and God centered songs every day. In other words, I'm consistently reminded to "walk in newness (literally 'freshness') of life".

Do you want a fresh start to each new day? Then put on the praise and worship music, open the word, and ask God to revive and refocus your walk.

I believe in the Son
I believe in the Risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of His blood
