Lincoln Brewster holds at # 1 for a 3RD week in a row on my personal weekly Christian music chart, and “Gracefully Broken” holds steady at # 2 for the 3RD week in a row following its 6-week reign at # 1.
Entering the chart – straight-in at # 3 this week – is newcomer Austin French with his “Freedom Hymn”. Austin was actually the runner-up of the ABC-TV singing competition show “Rising Star” during its lone season in the Summer of 2014. “Freedom Hymn” celebrates chains breaking, a heart changing, and a soul forgiven.
I frequently preach about freedom. Back before I was saved – I was a slave to the world, and I didn’t even know it. Now I’m free. I never experienced true freedom – until God placed me on this fantastic journey. I am freer today than I was yesterday, and I’ll be freer tomorrow than I am today. God is freedom.
For you have been called to live in freedom – my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead – use your freedom to serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13 NLT)
Thank You – my brothers and sisters – for liking and following my blog. May God bless you – always and forever – as you walk towards His bright light.
