Hey ya’ll I am Lance Jongekrijg – a Junior and an IPHS major. I play basketball here at Alma, and enjoy listening to Christian Rap.
I don’t know how many of you have listened to Lecrae before, but he has some good music if you are into hip-hop with a Christian spin. So, I wanted to give you a little preview. This song is called Background and it focuses on the role we should play in our relationship with God. It explains how we should not be the ones thinking we know everything in our life, but rather to follow God and his plan – to play a background with Him at the lead.
I also want to think of this song with a sense of Humility. Our pride can account for many problems with our relationship with God and with others. It is important to humble ourselves before others – Jesus showed us exactly what this means with his disciples when he washed their feet.
Read John 13: 1-17.
Pride and self-righteousness are common problems we run into being human, but we must remember that we are all created in God’s image and although we all may have different roles within school, society, etc. we are all equal. Sometimes the best thing for us to do is to take a step back and play the background once and awhile – don’t let our pride get the best of us.
