My Sunday Song – “God’s Not Dead (Like a Lion)” by Newsboys

My Sunday Song #10 is “God’s Not Dead (Like a Lion)” by the band Newsboys and from the movie called “Gods Not Dead”.  My wife had mentioned that the movie “God’s Not Dead 2” was out now on DVD and we should watch it.  That of course brought me back to this song which I felt I would share.

The inspiration for the movies was this song.  The first movie “God’s Not Dead” was based around the premise of a college philosophy professor demands the students sign a petition declaring God is dead to pass his class.  One student refuses and has to defend to the professor and the class why God is not dead.  We watched with our family and it was a great family movie.  The sequel “God’s Not Dead 2” is about a teacher who gets sued for mentioning God in class and how she goes defends herself.  Looking forward to seeing it.

I feel as our country has tried to remove God from schools and everyday life, the more the country has started to slip into a darkness it won’t get out of without that faith and hope.  The whole politically correctness and separation of Church and state has been blown so out of proportion that Christianity has seem to become the bad guy.  Tim Tebow is criticized for taking a knee at a football game to give thanks to God and he is ridiculed for talking about his faith by the media.  I don’t understand why that would be considered wrong.   I know I am rambling now, so I will stop, but hopefully my point came across.

Happy Sunday and I hope you enjoy this week’s song.

“God’s Not Dead (Like A Lion)”

Let love explode and bring the dead to life
A love so bold to see a revolution somehow

Let love explode and bring the dead to life
A love so bold to bring a revolution somehow

Now I’m lost in Your freedom
In this world I’ll overcome

[2x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Roaring, He’s roaring, roaring like a lion

Let hope arise and make the darkness hide
My faith is dead I need resurrection somehow

Now I’m lost in Your freedom
In this world I’ll overcome

[2x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

Roaring, He’s roaring, roaring like a lion
He’s roaring, He’s roaring

[3x]
Let heaven roar
And fire fall
Come shake the ground
With the sound
Of revival

[4x]
My God’s not dead
He’s surely alive
He’s living on the inside
Roaring like a lion

He’s roaring, He’s roaring, He’s roaring like a lion [2x]
