Becoming Like You

Heaven's Crush EP

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was out for a run and I was asking Father God if we would be alright.

After two years, I was hearing God again; I was becoming sure in a daily, hourly, minute-by-minute floodgate of His good presence. Sweeter still, in the last month, He was only saying one thing.

“I love you, Jason.”

We were several months behind on our mortgage, our fridge was nearly empty, our pantry was a ghost town. The bill collectors and the lawyers wanted their pound of flesh.

“I love you, Jason.”

But the question I’d asked Him seemed fair, “Will we be alright?”

I got home as dusk settled. There was just enough time to mow the small unruly patch of grass in our front yard. And there were still fumes in the mower.

I settled into the seemingly mundane routine, but my heart never left fellowship with my good Father.

“I love you, Jason”.

I stood on the front porch in the last light of day with one thought. It was heaven-sent, it was revelatory, it was bigger, and greater, and more powerful than any other thought I’d ever had.

“It’s measureless! His love is measureless!”

At that moment, everything in my life changed.

We would be alright.

… Laughing I went in to kiss Karen and hug the kids. Karen kissed me lightly but then she and the kids ran from me while informing me that I needed a shower.

In the shower, I sang, “I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you. Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own”.  I leaped from the shower, wrapped myself in a towel, ran into our bedroom, riffled through papers on Karen’s nightstand, found a pencil, then back to the bathroom dripping on the linoleum, I wrote…

I’ve been Your echo, I’ve been Your shadow
But my heart is to know You so I can be Your voice
I’ve stood on mountains, I’ve knelt in valleys
From glory to glory my heart will always be Yours
 
I’m becoming like You, I’m becoming like You
Its the cry of my heart my King, that I’d display Your majesty
 
I’m becoming like you, I’m becoming like you
Let Your love be all I know, till Your glory becomes my own
 
Oh, let Your glory come down
Let Your goodness surround, we’re singing
Oh, this revival sound
It’s shaking the ground, its transforming us
 

Many of you have heard me lead this song in worship over the last years. Many have asked when I would record it.

This song is one of the four that will be on the EP titled Heaven’s Crush. This song is an invitation into transformative Love. There is life on this song and album!

My heart is to release this album with my new book, Prone To Love, which releases Feb 18.

We have 9 days left to raise the funding to get this album mixed. If you feel led, please give. If you can’t give, please consider sharing on Facebook and Twitter. Go to the link below for more information on the album, to give, and share.

THE CROSS with DEREK TURNER & JASON CLARK

In this first episode of season two, Jason and new host Derek Turner dive into the wonder of what Jesus revealed about our Father and humanity through the cross and resurrection.

DOUG CREW / WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE RIGHT NOW?

Navigating through loss with a good God, experiencing the presence of God as a loving Father, loving our neighbor, democrat and republican, and love answering every question that aches in the heart of humanity, Doug Crew shares on these subjects and more with insight and grace. Doug is the executive leader of Shiloh Place Ministries and a good friend of the podcast.

BRYANT SPRATLIN / THE THIRD OPTION

In this conversation, Jason and Bryant Spratlin discuss the goodness of God and the journey of rethinking God’s wrath as love, the impact of misinterpretation and bad theology, hearing God’s voice, parenting and apologizing, choosing to love and staying connected, identity, loving the religious, imaginary prayer, the fear of being wrong, rethinking hell, apokatastasis-the restoration of all things, the pleasure of our Father, awakening to the present love reality, and Jesus as the perfect minister. The guys discuss the story of the woman caught in adultery to reveal the paradigm of union as the third option Jesus offers all of us. Overall, this conversation highlights the importance of understanding God’s goodness and the transformative power of grace.

Outwitted

But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him In!  

That is the gospel of Jesus on a cross; that no matter the circles drawn to shut people out, Love draws bigger circles, Love says, “We all belong, we become!”

There is No “Us” and “Them”

Many long to go back to the early days of the church, viewing those first few years as the high-water mark of what a church is meant to be. They weren’t. Not even close!

JASON GRIMSLEY / CROSS STITCHED

“Whether I’m high or low, in heaven or hell, nothing can ever separate me from God’s love.” Jason dives into a memoir he helped his friend, baseball legend, Jason Grimsley, write. They guys talk about Jason’s wild and unbelievable life. This conversation is part storytelling, part revelation, and all testimony of the love of God.

Jason shares about several hardships he’s faced, including a botched suicide attempt and the near destruction of his marriage. The guys shared insights and wisdom for the highs and lows of life. And all along the way, they highlighted the message of the book. Cross Stitched displays the very real and present love of God and the abundant life He offers us when we surrender to Him.
