I preached at a youth church in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago. Before the sermon, one of the fit blokes interviewing me said, "Last question, what do you think of Kanye West's new album JESUS IS KING?"
I spent the next few minutes telling them a few of the best things about Kanye's new album and his new found faith in Jesus.
1. People are talking about Jesus - Get on that ride!
2. Kanye reaches millions - pray for him.
3. Kanye is a baby Christian - be gentle with him. The lyrics in the album are simple, direct and passionate - just like a new Christian. It's not advanced theology but new faith. He's talking in his language about his experience. Just like we did when we first met Jesus.
4. Kanye has plans - Just like we did when we were new Christians. We know what we did with them. Some successes. Some failures. In the future, however his plans pan out, treat Kanye as you want to be treated.
5. We should not be among the naysayers - Christians should be 100 percent possitively engaged in the lives and ministry of other Christians. We are the body of Christ. Kanye is a huge set of hands for Jesus right now. He is a supersized mouth for Jesus (as are most new Christians!) and also like other baby Christians, Kanye is a sensitive body part that needs extra care.
6. Jesus is King - Follow Him.
7. Jesus is Judge - He just asks us to love people.
