The lyrics of today’s song could have been written by one of Jesus’ disciples. The man who identifies himself as Levi writes about Jesus’ expectations for a disciple, Matthew 16:24-27. This commitment isn’t easy. The only way to keep Jesus’ request is by letting go by denying yourself, taking up the cross and following Jesus. While the attached video doesn’t credit a specific group, the words of Letting Go is self-explanatory.
Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation. 11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed, Romans 10:9-11.
The apostle Paul provides another way to let go in the passage above. Paul urges first century Christians to make Jesus the Lord of their lives. This requires a public confession of faith, usually in the form of a baptism. Meanwhile, this act should be accompanied by acts of contrition to demonstrate your faith and trust in Jesus. While Electric Christian music may be new to you, the final two songs of the week get better and better.
