Die toekoms van Trip Lee

Die meeste van julle weet my as 'n rapper en sanger, maar die waarheid is, op die hart dra Ek was nog altyd 'n prediker was.

Vir so lank as wat ek het is die maak van musiek, my diepste begeerte is om die Evangelie te verkondig en verklaar die goedheid en heerlikheid van Jesus Christus. Deur God se genade het ek het die geleentheid om musiek te gebruik om dit te doen op 'n openbare verhoog het. Ek het elke sekonde van dit lief en ek het probeer om dit te doen met uitnemendheid. Oor die jare, Ek het gevoel God my roep en toerus my nie net om musiek te maak, maar ook om te preek en te skryf.

Dis hoekom verlede jaar het ek geskryf Die goeie lewe, 'n boek wat dieper duik in die boodskap agter my rekord met dieselfde titel. Dit is ook die rede waarom ek laaste val dat ek nie sou reis heeltemal so veel aangekondig as ek gewees het. Ek wil om te leer hoe om 'n getroue pastoor wees, en dit kan net werklik gebeur in die konteks van 'n plaaslike kerk. So ek neem die tyd om te belê in leer uit goddelike pastore by my kerk in Washington, DC. Here bereid, as ek dien op die personeel by my kerk, Ek sal ook in staat wees om meer van die gereedskap wat ek nodig het om 'n lang termyn in die plaaslike bediening dien te ontwikkel.

Ek vertrou die Here dat goeie dae is voor, en moenie bekommerd wees nie - jy sal hoor 'n baie meer van my af, van die skryf van musiek te leer en te preek. Ek is dankbaar vir al jou ondersteuning langs die pad, en ek nooi jou uit om saam met my op die pad vorentoe.

      No he’s not stepping away from music, he’s devoting more of his time to his pastoral studies and commitment to his local church

      At first I believed he was retiring. Now every time I listen to his old songs, I’m likehe’s coming back, he’s way too good not too. Still one of my favorite artists.

    Awesome it is great to see a young person who is willing to pursue god to the point of stepping down from a career in music as his main focus to putting gods word as a preacher and pastor first. You were already doing that with your music you know, now its a musicless song.

    hey Trip,

    Who do you listen to for sermons? I see Piper’s work interwoven in Reach’s work, what other kind of figures do you listen to for inspiration/enlightenment on scripture?

    Dankie.

    Definitely understand, the calling of a shepherd is first to his immediate flock. We’re having a conference at my church New Bethel Church in Kansas City, Kansas especially dedicated to up and coming pastors. My pastor Suff. Bishop A. Glenn Brady is an excellent mentor and is passionate about pushing people into the abundance of God’s blessings for their lives. You should look him up on FB!

    Just remember that preaching is communicating the gospel, however you do that best. I have always found your music to be wonderful sermons. A lot of times we think that a ‘callmeans we have to do the standard preacher role, when what He is equipping us for is what our hands find to do.

    Just a thought.
    My the Lord bless and keep you.

    This really didn’t surprise me. I can see that’s where that dude’s heart is calling. He staying true to it and I pray for God’s best for him. And that he stays humble. It’s funny that I’m wearing hisCan I brag on my Lord?” wristband. That’s who I know will get the glory and for that I’m all with it. Let’s GO!!!!!

    I am going the distance with you Trip.
    Hebreërs 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [ons] geloof; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    With you all the way trip! Luv hearing you from your music to your book and your sermons. May our Good Lord continue to bless you and your family.

    Ur music is just too good for you to put away! Your music is your sermons…..it touches alot of souls even to the point that you are unaware. It may not be reflected in album sales, Grammys, sold out shows but know that its to His glory. Like you said don’t look for that boxed up comfortable Jesus, it doesn’t exist. I will say this if the conviction or love of music digs into your soul enough, I know you will be back! Think about the missionaries who are tortured and kill in this day and age for Christ…..I know many of them thought of returning to their local churches where there is comfort! They are the brave soldiers…..warriors….i admire them more than any othercliquein Christ….They are trulyunashamed”!
