Those of you who have followed my writings know how I feel about music. God designed it to stir your soul. Music will either stir your soul toward God or away from Him. This week as my family and I have listened to Robert Pierre’s newest album, I’m All In, our hearts have been stirred toward God!
Robert is a very talented young man. In addition to writing, recording, and playing on a summer tour, he also leads regular Sunday morning worship at his church. And he’s done it all as a high school senior. I’m All In is his third studio album and is set to release tomorrow (July 26th).
I’m All In is a collection of enthusiastic songs filled with the deep truths of God. For example, my favorite on the album is Who R U. There is a theological term found in the Scriptures known as antithetical parallelism. God’s Word is full of antithesis. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life” Romans 6:23. “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins” Proverbs 10:12. “Depart from evil, and do good” Psalm 37:27. All through Scripture opposites are clearly revealed: life and death, love and hate, good and evil, saved and unsaved, narrow way and broad way, blessed and cursed, wise and foolish, fruitful and withered, etc. Robert expounds of this concept throughout his song. He sings,
You’re either hot or your cold – either yes or your no – will you stay or will you run – who will you become – you’re either in or you’re out – either soft or your loud – when He calls for His own – I want to be known
My husband says this is great “driving music”. His favorite song is “Stranger In This Land.”
This world will try to shut me down – Push and shove me to the ground – but I’ve been covered by the blood of Christ – I am His and He is mine – I may be hated but this ain’t my town – persecuted constantly beat down – but there’s a joy in the suffering – cause He is my identity – I’m not of this world – I’m a stranger in this land
