Then Sings My Soul Saturdays - A Better Way (Downhere)

*Please don't forget to scroll down & turn off my blog music*

I heard this group the day they performed on Spirit 105.3 and I fell head over heels for the words, the voice... what a voice God gave this group. You can't help but stop and reflect on the gift Jesus gave us when He stepped down from His throne and came to earth for us.

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

~Philippians 2:1-11

For me, this is where this song takes me and is a powerful support to the Scripture that Jesus didn't have to do what He did. He chose to - to suffer the pain of being away from Heaven, of being mocked and tortured, spit on and beaten and then hung on a cross. Knowing that wasn't final because of our all-powerful God, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day. Because of that love, that sacrifice, we can be made right before God. "What a gift" is an understatment. I hope you enjoy the song.

I was obsessed with this song for MONTHS when it first came out on the radio...I love it!! I would blast it and sing at the top of my lungs in the car...by myself!! I'm sure other drivers got a good laugh from that. Haha.
