Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” John 12:24-25
That’s the premise for the new Christian rap album S.E.E.D.S. by Canvas. The description sums it up this way: “S.E.E.D.S stands for "Salvation Enriches Everything Death Subjected;" this album is one mainly to inspire the Christian that in Christ we have the power to redeem any and all spheres of life. God created all things good, but due to the fall mankind now perverts Gods' good creation. We Christians are now called to go out and redeem what was once lost. We are Seeds of the Seed, Jesus Christ.”
Canvas grounds all his verse in scripture, presenting the Gospel over and over in every song. From the straight Gospel message in “Structure and Direction” to the exultation to lay it all down for Christ in the title track “S.E.E.D.S.” the lyrics continually point to Jesus.
I labeled this a design post, because I worked with Canvas to design the cover of the album, so I admittedly have some bias here, but really it’s a great album, and while the best part is that it brings glory and honor to our great God lyrically, Canvas also uses his music to evangelize and gives away the cd for the sake of the Gospel. I have to say it’s awesome to see a heart for Jesus shining so brightly in a dark world.
So I encourage anyone reading this, to go listen, get a free copy of the album, and if you’re interested in donating to the work of this awesome man of God, you can contact him directly through his twitter account: @davethedoulos
Enjoy the music!
