I have fond memories of today’s song. My college roommate introduced me to the group Acapella. After spending my first semester of college exploring the party scene, I turned my life back to God. When I moved off campus, Mike and I would spend weekend nights sitting in lawn chairs on our front yard listening to Christian music. One of those songs was Better Than Life.
I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture. 10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [b]overflows), John 10:9-10.
While there are several Acapella groups that go on tour every summer, the lyrics of Better Than Life struck a cord with my soul. Based upon words from a Psalmist and John 10:10, the Bible is crucial to discovering the abundant life that Jesus promised. While Acapella isn’t a flashy group like most modern Christian artists, the words of Better Than Life provide spiritual food for your soul.
