Casting Crowns Releases 'Only Jesus' Album (Official Video)

Worship band, Casting Crowns, just released their album “Only Jesus”. The theme of the album is reflected in the title song of the same name. Without a doubt, Jesus is our only Hope and should be the focus of our lives.

“Make it count, leave a mark, build a name for yourself
Dream your dreams, chase your heart, above all else
Make a name the world remembers
But all an empty world can sell is empty dreams
I got lost in the light but it was up to me
To make a name the world remembers
But Jesus is the only name to remember”

Frontman Mark Hall shares, "Everyone in scripture that we pattern our life after got up every morning and said, 'You're first Jesus. What do you want? What is your will?' Not 'What is your will for my life?' Not, 'What can you do for me and how can you bless what I'm doing?' But they got up and said, 'God, what are you doing today? I want in.'"

There are so many pulls on Christians today – money, schedules, and social media “scores”. “Only Jesus” is a great reminder that these things are secondary to where our focus should be. Each day believers should seek God out and ask what it is that He wants accomplished that day!

“All the kingdoms built, all the trophies won / Will crumble into dust when it’s said and done / ‘Cause all that really matters / Did I live the truth to the ones I love / Was my life the proof that there is only One / Whose name will last forever / Jesus is the only name"

As youth pastors and leaders in church, the Casting Crowns members know all too well that teenagers need to see their leaders being authentic and living what they preach. It’s time to renew our focus on Jesus and set the example for others with our daily faith walk!
