Sermon Song

I’ve had this album, Spirit Water Blood by Hearts Afire, in my music library since even before I became a Christian. I came to have it because some of my friends from school had designed the album artwork for it. I even remember going to the album release party 6 years ago at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church to support my friends in their achievement.

I remember sometime last year hearing the song, Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing) from that album. Hearts Afire’s version of this song is different in that it has a sermon message in the middle of the song. For a long while, I had been wondering who speaks the sermon in the middle of that song. It was a powerful sermon and I had never heard anything like that before. Earlier this year, I came to recognize that it was the voice of Pastor Tony Evans. I recognized his voice because for the past 8 months, I’ve enjoyed listening to his broadcast messages on 105.7 FM. But it was today that I heard the actual sermon, apart from the excerpt in the song. I was thrilled, it is a powerful sermon!

Here is the link to the online sermon from today’s broadcast:
The Expansion of the Battle (Part 2)
by Dr. Tony Evans

Here is the song, with lyrics below:

Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging
Your love is a mountain, firm beneath my feet
Your love is a mystery, how You gently lift me
When I am surrounded, Your love carries me

Chorus:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing
Your love is surprising, I can feel it rising
All the joy that’s growing deep inside of me
Every time I see You, all Your goodness shines through
And I can feel this God song, rising up in me

Chorus:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Sermon Excerpt (by Tony Evans):
Every man is going to fall to Satan,
because every man belongs to Satan
So the question is, who’s going to go?

The second member of the Trinity says,
I’ll go
But I need somebody perfect,
I’ll go
But I need somebody who’s willing to be a man,
I’ll go
I need somebody to be born of a woman,
to come down a woman’s birth canal,
I’ll go

I need somebody to meet him in the wilderness
and allow Satan to do with him
what he did with the first Adam
Jesus says, I’ll go
I need somebody who’d be willing to go to the other tree
The first tree got him kicked out of the garden
I need somebody who will hang on another tree
To bring them back in the garden
Jesus said, I’ll go
Then I need somebody to rise from the dead
To demonstrate our God victory over
Jesus said, I’ll go
And then I need somebody
who’s going to empower sinful man
to become like me
Jesus said, I’ll go

And in the nick of time
Jesus was born of a virgin,
came into this world, why?
So you and I could get back into the garden
Jesus Christ is the second Adam who will do
what the first Adam failed to do
You haven’t seen the man,
Jesus Christ
He is our deliverer
He is our savior
He is our solution
He is our covering
He is our hope

Chorus:
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Bridge:
Yes, You make me sing
Lord, You make me sing, sing, sing
How You make me sin
