Are you ready? 

It's time for another review AND a giveaway! 

Revolution Worship LIVE!

First:  let me give you information provided by Revolution & then I'll give you my honest review of what I thought about the music! 

Revolution Worship…Live At Joy Church International”, is a tremendous Praise & Worship album with a powerfully inspiring collection of songs that is unparalleled to any other Praise & Worship series in it’s category. Filled with meaningful lyrics and sincere, personal worship, “Revolution Worship…Live At Joy Church International” masterfully demonstrates authenticity at it’s best. From fiery, electrifying tracks with edgy, rock-driven guitar to peaceful, intimate tracks, this album focuses on pointing attention to God.

And because it’s recorded live, you get to experience the congregational feel of being in a vibrant church service.

Infusing musical quality with a spiritual impact that raises the bar on what to expect in new Praise & Worship music, “Revolution Worship…Live At Joy Church International” brings you a brand new worship experience.

From start to finish, this release is about the act of ministering uncompromisingly God-centered music through pure, heart-felt praise!

Now, my thoughts:

I definitely loved the sincerity of the singers.  Listening left no doubt in my mind that their hearts were coming through the music.  Isn't that what worship is about?  Words mean nothing if the heart isn't behind it.  The greatest thing I can say about Revolution Worship LIVE is that when I listened, I was moved. 

One of my favorites is "We Lift You Up".  It immediately put my heart in the right frame of mind and I've found myself gravitating to replaying it over and over.  The words were powerful.  Any of you that read my blog very often know that music is my sanity saver.  It never fails that a bad day can immediately take a turn for the better when just the right song plays.  Christian music connects us to our Savior and I LOVE that!

Something else that I absolutely loved about Revolution Worship LIVE is that the message of salvation was included.  I can't say that I've ever heard that done on a music CD before.   "This CD has been all about worship.  But worship begins with RELATIONSHIP!"  Can't get more truthful than that!  We can sing the words all day, but without a personal relationship with Christ it is meaningless.  I applaud the worship team that put this CD together for including the message of salvation.  "It's not about BEING GOOD, it's about BELONGING to God. It's not about behavior modification.  It's actually about life transformation.  It's not about what you have or haven't done.  It's all about what Jesus Christ has done for you."  My favorite statement in the prayer of salvation track is this:  "He loves you like you are the only person in this world to love!"  I also loved how it talks about without relationship with Him, he is just your creator.  Yet, once you are in a relationship with Him, he becomes your FATHER.  Such precious words for a hurting world!  Never is the message spoken with condemnation!  Excellent job, Revolution Worship LIVE!

All in all, the music is great.  I obviously felt drawn more to some songs than others, but I think that is true of most every CD.  I was thrilled with the quality of the instrumental music/worship band.  I loved the variety of songs and the different "types" of music presented.  At times they were soft, peaceful songs that calmed my heart and others were ones that make you "want to get up and rock out" (according to my 5 year old!).
