Are you CALLED or are you CRAZY?

“Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began…”
2 Timothy 1:9
Limos. Red carpet. Top notch catering and flash photography. That’s what you see.
Broke down vans. Cold pizza. A venue without a PA. The church created a poster of you with a picture from your old MySpace page. That’s what really happens.
What delusions do you have of Christian music?
I laugh every time I watch shows like the Grammys, the American Music Awards and even the Dove Awards. Television paints a picture that everyone who writes a song gets treated like Jay Z and Beyonce. The limo pulls up and because you’ve created this amazing piece of art, you get to walk the red carpet while everyone takes your picture. Your song is changing the world, so therefore you are famous.
