The anthem of a generation


Jake Hamilton, a Jesus Culture music artist, recently released his first CD.  If you haven't heard it, he plays harder rock that's all about falling in love with God and bringing revival.  Above all, the song that speaks the most to me is titled "The Anthem."

Each generation has a choice.  Many choices.  Ultimately, we can choose to leave a greater spiritual inheritance for those that follow us, or to fall farther away from God.  As for my generation - for me - I want us to fall back to a place of pure worship for our King, and to bring personal and corporate revival.  I want our generation to shake entire nations.  To win entire nations for God!  This is not easy.  I'm convinced that following God is the hardest thing anyone can do on this earth.  In order to do this, we need to wake up out of religious complacency and spiritual death!  Romans 13 tells us to know the time - the hour has come for us to wake from our sleep.

So let's focus on the first commandment.  Love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our might.  Run at a full sprint and don't stop.  Be more afraid of rotting out from complacency than burning out from running too hard.  This is the one thing that matters.  There is no greater commandment.  And so it goes - This is the anthem of our generation, here we are God, shake our nation!

The Anthem

I can hear the footsteps of my King
I can hear His heartbeat beckoning
In my darkness He has set me free
And now I hear the Spirit calling me

He's calling wake up child it's your turn to shine
You were born for such a time as this
He's calling wake up child it's your turn to shine
You were born for such a time as this
Such a time as this

And I can hear a holy rumbling
I've begun to preach another King
Loosing chains and breaking down the walls
I want to hear the Father when He calls

He's calling wake up child it's your turn to shine
You were born for such a time as this!
(x4)
Such a time as this

This is the anthem of our generation
Here we are God, shake our nation!
All we need is your love,
You captivate me!
(x4)

I am royalty, I have destiny,
I have been set free, I'm gonna shape history!
(x8)

I'm gonna change the world! (x7)
