Breaking The Silence

We gotta break the silence
We’ve been quiet for too long
We’ve gotta wake up, wake up, hey

I love music. The group I’ve been rather obsessed with lately is Anthem Lights. I was just listening to their song “Can’t Shut Up”, and I immediately knew that this was what I had to write about.

It’s a fact: So many of us are afraid to stand up for what we believe in. In an attempt to fit in, we let the crowd push us around to the point that no one can tell the difference between us and the world.

That’s not right. When you have Jesus in your heart, there’s a difference. A difference in the way you act, the way you treat others, what you do with your time. But if we just go with the flow, our friends can’t tell the difference between us and them. If there isn’t a difference, what’s the point of being a Christian to them?

What I love about “Can’t Shut Up” is it’s all about how we shouldn’t be able to stay quiet about our God. The God who saved us, who gave us eternal life, who loves us unconditionally. And when you really just think about everything He’s done for you, how can you be quiet? How can we stand not saying anything, not shouting this good news to the world?

Our generation is far too quiet for what we believe in. We are part of something amazing, incredible, and…well, indescribable!

Listen up: I don’t want to be the one people forget. The one that was just “there”, another face in the crowd, wallpaper. I want to be the one they remember. The one that was…different. Changed. Because I am changed by God’s love, and I want the whole world to know. Are you willing to take that stand?

If we don’t break the silence, how will the world know that God loves them? That He wants them to join His family, to become His sons and daughters?

We need to get excited about what God has done for us! When we are on fire for God, the world will take notice. We can change the world. It may sound impossible, even ridiculous, but it’s not! If God is at work in you, nothing is impossible.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13, NKJV)

Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. Live your life for God! He gave His for you.

This is why we get up and sing
We can’t shut up
He is everything that we need
We can’t shut up
Love has come and now we are free
We can’t shut up about it
We can’t shut up about it
We can’t shut up
