Living with Passion (I Love Rock and Roll)

The Glory of God is the heart of a man fully alive. This Sunday at the end of our worship, we did a rock medley as a fun gift to the dad's in the service and as a celebration of a life lived with passion.

I believe we Christian's are supposed to claim all things for the Kingdom and not concede any thing to the forces of darkness. So we took rock songs that we thought could have some spiritual overtones and a positive message for our lives and found some scriptures for context on each one.

Hopefully we will be inspired to live out the kernel of truth in each song.

Here are the 7 songs and their scripture verses.

Eye of The Tiger

But David said When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God.

Born To Be Wild

In those days John the Baptist came, A voice of one calling in the desert,

Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.

Johns clothes were made of camels hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.

Livin' On A Prayer

Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.

Don't Fear The Reaper

Where, O death, is your victory?

Where, O death, is your sting?

Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.

In The Name Of Love

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.


Dude (Looks Like A Lady)

This was a tough one to find a scripture, but the Bible is a rich book.

The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord blessed him, No razor may be used on his head.

Don't Stop Believin'

Acts 16:31
They replied, Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.


This Father's day, I pray we'd all live Christ centered lives of relentless passion and always remember.....................characters are welcome in the Kingdom.

Your fellow character,
