The Future of Trip Lee

De fleste av dere kjenner meg som en rapper og utøver, men sannheten er, på hjertet Jeg har alltid vært en predikant.

For så lenge jeg har vært å lage musikk, min dypeste ønske har vært å forkynne evangeliet og erklære godhet og herlighet i Jesu Kristi. Ved Guds nåde jeg har hatt muligheten til å bruke musikk til å gjøre det på en offentlig scene. Jeg har elsket hvert sekund av det, og jeg har prøvd å gjøre det med excellence. I løpet av årene, Jeg har følt Gud kalte meg og utstyre meg ikke bare for å lage musikk, men også å forkynne og å skrive.

Det er derfor i fjor skrev jeg Det gode liv, en bok som dykker dypere inn meldingen bak min ta opp med samme tittel. Det er også grunnen til at jeg annonsert i fjor høst at jeg ikke ville reise ganske så mye som jeg har vært. Jeg ønsker å lære hvordan å være en trofast pastor, og det kan bare virkelig skje i sammenheng med en lokal menighet. Så jeg tar deg tid til å investere i læring fra gudfryktige pastorer i kirken min i Washington, DC. Herren vil, som jeg tjener på personalet i min kirke, Jeg vil også være i stand til å utvikle flere av de verktøyene jeg trenger for å tjene langsiktig i lokal tjeneste.

Jeg stole på Gud at gode dager ligger foran, og ikke bekymre deg - du vil høre mye mer fra meg, fra å skrive til musikk til undervisning og forkynnelse. Jeg er takknemlig for all støtte underveis, og jeg inviterer deg til å bli med meg på veien videre.

      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.

    Hei 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?

    Takk.

    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.
    Hebreerne 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 [vår] tro; 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”!
