‘Sold Out’ Housefires Worship Performance

Listen to “Sold Out” performed by Housefires.

One talented group of musicians sang about their commitment level to Jesus Christ.

To truly follow Christ requires a high degree of devotion and dedication. God’s Word mentions that a total and complete surrender to Him and His will is necessary. James 4:7 encourages those who love and follow Him to “submit yourselves to God.”

In the song “Sold Out” by the Housefires, the musicians repeatedly state that they have given themselves entirely to the Lord. They are no longer living according to their wants, needs or desires. Instead, they have submitted wholly to the Lord and to His will for their lives. 

That type of adherence and obedience to the Word of God will likely seem odd and out of place to those in the world. The musicians, in their lyrics, touch upon the idea that this act of surrender to Jesus Christ will not be understood or even appreciated by some. 

However, instead of cowering and bending under the pressure, the questioning and possibly even the insults from the world, they will stay true to Christ. They will hold onto Christ, His Word and His guidance for their life.

“I don’t care what the world said
I got the Gospel running through my veins 
I’m sold out, sold out for You”

While the song is simple, the meaning and weight behind its lyrics are substantial. The musicians mention many times how they have forsaken the things of this world and instead have chosen to live their lives in a way that glorifies Him. 

Yes, taking such a step of complete surrender to Christ is a big move that requires a massive amount of faith. But His plan will always be bigger, better and greater than anything we could have envisioned for our life. 

Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
