In his new album, the respected rapper calls Christians to stand out and be different.
I recently found out that my brother in Christ, Lecrae, is dropped another awesome album called Anomaly.Church Clothes 2 Mixtape went hard, and had a lot of powerful truths portrayed in it. But, like many have asked, what is this word “anomaly”? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary it’s this:
Anomaly: something different, abnormal, peculiar, or not easily classified…
And for me, that’s exactly how Lecrae can best be defined. He’s not a Christian rapper, but a rapper who so happens to be a Christian. He’s not ashamed of the Good News, as many have believed. He just hates being classified. He doesn’t fit in with the perverted secular rappers who only rap about wrong things, nor does he fit in with the Christians who only sing hymns. He’s Lecrae, and according to him, he just wants to be the man God called him to be. That simple.
Will you be an anomaly?
We all know that as Christians, we should be the light of the world, as Matthew 5:14 states.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hilltop cannot be hidden.
Living in a world of darkness, we’re supposed to shine and well, be different. Many of us desire to fit in, but God’s Word says clearly in 1 John 2:15: “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.”
The reality is, like all of us, Lecrae isn’t perfect. Not at all. Paul, Peter and the apostles weren’t perfect either, but they inspired us to put God first. Being an anomoly is a day-to-day practice. It’s about being different, standing out for Christ, being unashamed of who He is and being the light He’s called us to be.
