‘Chasing Rebels’ – Ben Fuller Official Music Video - Christian Music Videos

People can and often do make a complete mess of their lives. Thankfully, God is full of love, mercy and grace, willing and able to meet us at our absolute lowest. 

Through poor decisions and faulty thinking, people can end up in places they never ever imagined they’d be. Sin has a way of leading people astray. But God, like Ben Fuller’s song “Chasing Rebels” states, has a habit of reaching even the worst, most destructive and obstinate sinner.

The opening verses of Ben’s song mention all the horrible places he’s been and how he is ashamed of his past choices and mistakes. He also sings he was “nearly buried in a box of my own sin.”

But praise God, that is not the end of the story!

There is, the song points out, “an unrelenting” Savior coming who “loves chasing down rebels.”

The song also reiterates that no one is too far gone from God and his powerful love and grace.

“When it comes to shame, you’re not alone
From prodigals on barstools to pretenders in the church pews
Nobody’s ever really too far gone”

To help reinforce the song’s message of God “chasing rebels” and those who have rejected God, the video shows a man in prison who continually refuses the Lord. The man is handed a Bible by his fellow inmates on several occasions and he tosses God's Word to the side every time. 

But as the video shows, God is not done with him!

One day, out in the prison yard, the man breaks down and finally accepts God’s love. There is an immediate change in his personality and demeanor. He begins reading the Bible and makes up with his family.

What a beautiful song about God’s miraculous love and grace!

Romans 5:19 “For as by one man’s obedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”
