Have you ever struggled with your purpose? Then sibling band CAIN’s latest song may be exactly what you need to hear today. Following the release of upbeat songs “Rise Up (Lazarus)” and “Yes He Can” comes a slower ballad that sounds as if it’s coming directly from the lips of our Savior. Drawing from various statements from Jesus found in Scripture, “The Commission” encourages believers in their most important purpose: telling the world about Him.
Go tell the world about me
I was dead, but now I live
I’ve gotta go now for a little while
But goodbye is not the end
THE STORY BEHIND THE COMMISSION
Although the song pulls from many points in the Gospels, the primary message is found in Matthew 28:19-20.
In CAIN’s story behind the song video, Taylor delves even more into the idea:
It’s true that our purpose, our “Great Commission” as given by Christ before He left this earth, is to share the good news with those around us. But if that instruction intimidates you, you’re probably wondering, “How do I do that?” We’ve got a few suggestions to help.
