Thank God that He doesn’t expect us to be clean before we come to him.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.  For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—  but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.  For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.  More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation, (Romans 5:6-11, ESV).

Lacrae in a song called “Will You Take Me As I Am?” proclaims this great truth.  The kids I work with so desperately need to hear this truth (actually we all do).

Great music to introduce kids to if they are into Hip Hop music. Lacrae is one of the up and coming Holy Hip Hop artists. If you like this song check out "Don’t Waste Your Life" and "Change"
