“We Are the Reason” – Monday Musical Musings


If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ve probably heard that I was a music major in high school and college. The memories I have of special teachers and professors still come to mind as I listen to music.


???????????????????????????????One class was especially meaningful to me. Conducting. Mr. White brought this to life for me and I used his method of conducting for many years as I directed choirs. He was also the choir director for the women’s choir, so I saw him in action throughout the year.


Our Christmas concerts at CBC (now CCU) were always very special. They were the highlight of my year. It was during one of these concerts that I heard “We Are the Reason” for the first time. I believe Mr. White sang this song, but I couldn’t be 100% certain.


I recently heard it again and as you can imagine, my mind drifted to college and that Christmas concert. And then, to Bethlehem, Golgotha and the empty tomb. You and I are the reason Jesus came to earth. He came to bring life and offers abundant life to those who accept Him as their Lord and Savior.


As we continue toward Christmas, I pray that you will take the time to worship Jesus for the gift of life that He has provided. I also pray that you will give Him every part of your life to Him. And then, I pray that you will share this message with another who is seeking this same gift in their life.


“We Are the Reason”[i]

As little children
We would dream of Christmas morn
Of all the gifts and toys
We knew we’d find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

We were the reason
That He gave His life
We were the reason
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

As the years went by
We learned more about gifts
The giving of ourselves
And what that means
On a dark and cloudy day
A man hung crying in the rain
All because of love, all because of love

I’ve finally found the reason for living
It’s in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do every word that I say
I’ll be giving my all just for Him, for Him

He is my reason to live


This is one you’ll want to listen to! Click here for this beautiful message.


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
