The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2008

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday June 29TH 2008:

  1. Captives Come Home – Run Kid Run
  2. Out Of Control – Capital Lights
  3. 10 Good Reasons – Hello Kelly
  4. Anything You Say – Deas Vail
  5. This Is Home – Switchfoot

As I entered the 23RD month of my salvation a full decade ago the soundtrack of my journey at the time was poppy and punky.

Run Kid Run filled the bill perfectly. They released a string of radio-friendly hits back in the late-2000s – most of which reached the Top 3 – “Sing To Me” (# 3 in 2007), “Captives Come Home” (# 1 for 4 weeks in 2008), “Sure Shot” (# 2 in 2008), “Set The Dial” (# 1 for 3 weeks in 2009), and “My Sweet Escape” (#6 in 2009). Additionally “I’ll Forever Sing” – released shortly before my salvation in 2006 – was a popular recurrent radio hit as I was learning all about God for the very first time.

I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart.

Enjoy this weekend my brothers and sisters. Be safe. Have fun. Love all. Live life.

You Call Me …

This Sunday July 01ST I’ll be preaching a full sermon to my church family titled “Faith & Works”. 8 days later I’ll be preaching another full sermon to another church family here in town titled “Anointed & Accepted”. In-between those two sermons I’ll be on vacation, so it’ll be a crazy start to the month of July for me.

This is part of my “Faith & Works” sermon for this Sunday:

There’s an engraving on a cathedral wall in Germany that reads as follows:

Thus speaketh Christ our Lord to us:
You call Me Master, and obey Me not.
You call Me Light, and see Me not.
You call Me the Way, and walk Me not.
You call Me Life, and choose Me not.
You call Me Wise, and follow Me not.
You call Me Fair, and love Me not.
You call Me Rich, and ask Me not.
You call Me Eternal, and seek Me not.
You call Me Noble, and serve Me not.
You call Me Gracious, and trust Me not.
You call Me Might, and honor Me not.
You call Me Just, and fear Me not.
If I judge you – then blame Me not.
