A New “Invitation” Song???

Okay, let’s lay aside any arguments, discussions, controversies we could discuss regarding the appropriateness, technique, or alleged manipulation as to whether or not “invitations” are valid, appropriate, godly.

Let’s hypothesize that we are in favor of invitations (presented properly, which is another discussion)…

Nothing wrong with using “Just As I Am” or other tunes.

But am I the only one who thinks “From Now On” from the movie “The Greatest Showman” wouldn’t be good? Yeah, maybe tough for we mere mortals to sing (Hugh Jackman is incredible)…but the words…the words…the words…

Pardon the subtitles; I couldn’t find a full version without them…crank the speakers, listen/watch. Whatcha think???

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

One thought on “A New “Invitation” Song???”

  1. Haha…you’re right! I enjoyed that movie. It had sort of a redemptive message with a God sees us differently than the world does tone.
