LET OUR HEARTS KEEP BEATING
TO THE SOUND OF HEAVEN’S SONG
NO WE WON’T STAND SILENT
WE WILL SING LIKE NEVER BEFORE
(In Sync)

“The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
– 2 Chronicles 16:9 (NLT)

Fanatics.
Have you ever seen them?
The ones that turn up to the soccer games decked in their team colours from head to toe, paint smeared across their game-face, voices ruined by the end of the match.

Fanatics.
Their room is plastered in posters and gimmicks of their favourite singer. Not only do they know every word – every line – every song ever released, but they also know random details about their life, right down to their favourite flavour of ice cream.

Fanatics.
We can all be fanatics at some stage in our lives. We may not wear our fave jersey 24/7 or know Beyonce’s middle name, but at some point we have all faced a situation where we would do ANYTHING, count ANY cost, just so we could do or be what we believed in.

Sometimes we laugh at the measures people take to express their “love” for what they are passionate about, but we can all agree on this – they are committed.

Love makes people fanatical.
It makes people passionate as they express their commitment for all eternity to someone, whilst Whitney sings “iiiiiiiiiiiiii will alwaaaayyys loooooove yooouuuuuuu” in the background. It may be cheesy, but not a second thought is given to what other people think.

The more we fall in love with Jesus, the more we don’t care about whether or not people will think we’re weird. Our focus is not on them, but on Him.

The Bible says in 1 John 4:19 that “we love Him because He first loved us”.
He is more crazy about us than we could ever be about Him!
He didn’t just express His love for us by talking the talk…He walked the walk all the way to the cross so we could live freely.

Today, allow God’s love to strengthen your heart — you’ll never be the same again!
Keep in sync with His love.
When you realise that His thoughts towards you outnumber the grains of sand in all the world (Psalm 139:17-18), you’ll find yourself singing like never before!
