#06 2econd Avenue

From the outside some may think we believers are out of our minds but Rodlin speaks it plain and clear that we’re not out of control when we worship God with our wholes lives, our soul, mind and strength.
When we focus all of our passion on loving God then the world can more clearly see what being a follower of Jesus Christ is all about.  There is no doubt of the purpose and direction for his life in letting the message of God’s redeeming love flow through his words.  In collaboration with FayBN and The Editor the message Rodlin gives in this great rap comes through strong and with a huge sound in their song, “I’m Crazy (Loco Insane).”

Lead Scripture:
II Samuel 6:14-16
14 “And David danced before Jehovah with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.  15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of Jehovah with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.  16 And it was so, as the ark of Jehovah came into the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before Jehovah; and she despised him in her heart.
A heart on fire for the Lord cannot be contained and those around may not understand. Only God see’s the true heart of the one who worships.


[2econd Avenue] 
I'm going loco, insane. I'm going loco!
Out of my mind, not out of control 
Cross on my back, now grace with the flow 
Hands held high, keep me alive 
In a time, gotta strive and align let's go 
Changed me; I'm saved, no longer astray 
Humbled by your presence, means of perfection 
Why I'm stressing? Stress no more 
Going through things but I'm going for the gold 
Heavily equipped, like a soldier 
Moreover, not afraid of my faith, there's more 
When you trust in the Lord, with your heart 
And your soul and your mind He will bless you with more 
Anything the enemy does can't phase me 
I'm looking fear in the eyes, come face me 
Wanna know what I've been up to lately? 
Screaming loud for my God, I'm crazy! 
I'm going loco insane
[FayBN - Chorus] 
There's something radical deep beneath the surface 
To some it's crazy at times it's got me hurting 
Changing my motives and giving me a purpose 
It may seem crazy but Lord I know it's worth it
[2econd Avenue] 
Whatever you do, have it please God 
Have it please God, He's calling all the shots 
Now people in the place say it with me real loud 
All the time, God is good 
Tears in my eyes, when He died, for my life, 
He's alive, on the grind, no surprise, no lie 
People may think that's pride in my rhymes 
I can say it's only truth in this place and time 
No one is insignificant 
With God your so significant 
We are not worthy, but surely, come to God 
He will make you worthy 
Live for Christ, don't die in vain 
Grace expound, rearranged 
Here's some change, vend it all for His love 
Not in arcade games but Jesus man
I got something inside changing my mind 
Changing the way I think and talk and really seem alive 
But I don't understand; I just can't act the same 
I try to look back but something turns me the other way 
I feel a burning fire deep in my soul 
When I am feeling weak a bigger power takes control 
I just don't understand ever since that faithful day 
I put my trust in Jesus; His love got me going insane
[2econd Avenue] 
Now listen up! 
If you're not part of the Gospel, you're part of the obstacle 
Saints stand up! Get up! Move around and get on the dance floor!

Scriptures from Interview
Matthew 28:19
19 “Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:”
As Rodlin put it, “Go out and preach to all nations and show God’s love and compassion to others.”

Psalm 30:11
11 “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosened my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
Only God can turn our lives around from the inside out and give us joy that is unexplainable to the outside world.

2 Timothy 2:1
Timothy, my dear son, be strong with the special favor God gives you in Christ Jesus.
We know the Lord is with us always, and therefore we can be strong in him and believe his word and his promises to us.

Philippians 3:13-14
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.”
Where we’ve come from and how much farther we have to go is apparent to each of us inside.  Still we press forward not to earn salvation, but because we love Jesus, and we love him because he first loved us.

2 Peter 2: 20b-25
20 But if you suffer for doing right and are patient beneath the blows, God is pleased with you. 21 This suffering is all part of what God has called you to. Christ, who suffered for you, is your example. Follow in his steps. 22He never sinned, and he never deceived anyone. 23He did not retaliate when he was insulted. When he suffered, he did not threaten to get even. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.”
Through Jesus, our perfect example, we learn to endure the trials of this life by trusting in God and knowing that he is with us always.  We learn to be thankful in all things because we know God is watching us and the attitudes of our hearts.  We are called to walk in love, just as Jesus showed by the example of his life, and to worship God in all we do.
