Right now we’re listening to Keith Green’s top songs in our office. A song came up that I’ve heard before, but this recording has Keith adding some dramatic speaking and additional lyrics to the song. What made it powerful was that he was using excuses that we’d hear come from the mouths of many Christians and they made perfect sense. They were phrases I could actually imagine people saying.
The song is taken from Matthew 25:40. The parable is titled “The Sheep and the Goats”, which is also the title of the song.
One of the responses was that they didn’t Jesus in his time of need because it wasn’t their ministry. Whoa! Convicted? Guilty?
This particular recording is one you should really look for and listen to it closely. You can find it Yahoo LAUNCHcast.
