“旅行写咗一本书,我认为每个后生仔都要睇书. 佢对Jesus同呢一代嘅热烈贯穿于每一页. 我迫不及待地想睇到呢条消息嘅影响对一代嘅饿目的- Lecrae。”, Grammy颁奖- winning artist @lecrae “Rise is a phenomenal book that captures the heart of our culture. As soon as I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Trip challenges you to be REAL, and shows you how to live your life as a young adult in the world today. Great read.” — Sam Acho, NFL linebacker, humanitarian @thesamacho “Trip has written a book I wish I would’ve read when I was younger. His passion, wisdom, and desire to challenge the younger generation is a testament to the work God’s doing through Trip and the work he can do through us all.” — Kirk Franklin, Grammy award- winning and multi-platinum recording artist @kirkfranklin “I loved reading Rise. Many times in this book I found myself medi- tating over pages after I read them. I was encouraged, inspired, and challenged all the way through. The culture expects us to waste time but God...

書籍摘錄: 唔好羡慕板凳

我在高中時打過大學籃球. 係一個完全正確嘅講法 (除非你屈我定義唻遊戲唻呢個詞). 我上了一所小型私立學校, 如果你係一名大四學生,你就可以在校隊中佔有一席之地。. 我中意籃球比賽, 但我睇它比玩它好得多. 我可以責備球員並大喊“C'mon”!徜徉在具有明星技能晒嘅裁判. 但就係它所能做到嘅。. 我嘅學校有一個奇怪嘅規則,關於為咗畢業而實際參加躰育運動。, 雖然, 所以我被迫穿上衫,每個星期五夜晚都羞愧地垂下頭嚟。. 主場比賽嘅看台總是座無虛席. 興奮嘅家長同學生-其中好多係我嘅朋友-出現了支持團隊. 可悲嘅係, 佢哋可能喺遊戲中對我嘅影響一樣大。. 我會久不久瞥一眼看台, 想知所有人諗緊乜嘢, 尤其是我爸爸. 我想佢意識到我哋兩個都只係喺嗰度觀看。, 但我碰巧有一個更好嘅座位. The only time I actually made it onto the floor was at the...

Rise Book Excerpt: 7:00 A.M. Logic

I was fifteen years old and my life was being turned inside out. My name and appearance hadn’t changed, but everything else about me had. I was a completely different person than I had been a year or two before. I don’t mean like when people go to college and re-create themselves with new nicknames and personalities; I mean something significant had gone on inside of me. I had become a Christian. I felt new. I felt alive. I felt so good that I had to announce it to anyone who would listen, especially my closest friends and family. Everyone responded differently to the change in me—some with joy, others with resistance—but one conversation has always stood out to me. I was talking with an older man whom I greatly respected, thrilled to explain my game plan for honoring God with my lifestyle, specifically my sexual purity. I tried to be calm about it, but it was always hard to hold my excitement in. As the words leapt from my tongue at an unnatural pace, I got the sense that he wasn’t as excited as I was. He was trying to listen quietly, but his facial expression responded before his...

Produced by: Gawvi Additional Vocals by: J.

我個心係沉重嘅. 我知道上帝係好嘅, 他控制住, 但我心係沉重嘅. 上周在弗格森的事件之後 (以及對社會媒體嘅回應), 我感到負擔寫首歌. 我既目標唔係做任何偉大的聲明或聲明, 而是表達一切讓我感覺嘅方式. 所以我開始寫, 係乜出嚟. 在我腦海中囘盪嘅情緒係: “It could’ve been me.” I had a whole post ready on how Christians should respond in times like these, 可喺琴日埃里克. 加納嘅新聞之後, 我決定等待, 然後張貼之後,. 目前為止, 我淨係想講我有一顆沉重的心. 我而家對辯論同拗唔感興趣. 我淨係想自由表達我的傷痛. 我好傷心, 因為埃里克加納視頻係毀滅性的觀看. 幾個月前我同我老婆第一次睇既時候, 我們都哭了. 生活系一份美麗的禮物, 睇住生命離開某人嘅身體係清醒嘅, 尤其是當人將佢帶走的時候。. 我以為, “Surely people can’t...

New Book Coming Soon

My new book, 上升, comes out January 27th! It will be available wherever books are sold. You can pre-order it now and visit the book website at Risebook.tv. I pray the Lord will use it to encourage my generation to get up and live. Watch the trailer above and read a brief description of the book below: Society says youth is a time for carefree self-expression, but Trip Lee says God has called everyone to RISE from slumber, above low expectations, and to live for the risen King. The world tells us that our early years are to be irresponsibly enjoyed rather than devoted to meaningful pursuits. We're told that responsibility and commitment are burdens to be put off as long as possible. And so, most of us spend our youth in a sad state of slumber-sleeping in on life until we're forced to get up. The problem is that life has already begun. It's happening right now. And God has called you to live it. In this powerful book, Trip Lee argues it's time to wake up and RISE, to live the way we were created to live. Young or old, we've been called to live for Him. Right now. Young believers face the...

When Winners Look Like Losers

What do winners look like? Are they tall or short? Black or white? Strong or weak? I guess it depends on what we mean by "winner." I was sucked into the story of one winner this past month as a read a lengthy, but engaging biography of Michael Jordan. The detailed account reminded me why many people's obsession with him borders on hero worship. Many things can be said about "his airness" but nobody could ever claim he's not a winner. Did he look like a winner before he got all those championship rings, 雖然? As you read the book, it seemed clear from his childhood that he would be a champion. Whether that was his outstanding play as a little league pitcher or as a junior varsity basketball player; his high school growth spurt or his game winning shot during his freshman year with UNC. By the time I got to the chapters about his championships as a Chicago Bull, there were no surprises. The author told his story in a way that made it clear: Jordan was born to be a winner. And that's what we know him for: winning six championship rings, five MVPs, 和 14 All...

Wait, Trip — Didn’t You Retire?

A couple months ago I surprised everyone by announcing a brand new album, "Rise." You don’t understand how hard it was to keep quiet about it before my label and I went public. The album had been in the works for over a year, and I couldn’t wait to tell everyone — especially those who kept asking when I was dropping something new. The response so far has been deeply encouraging. I’m amazed that people have continued to support me even though I’ve been pretty quiet for the last two years. Your love and excitement has only increased mine. Early Retirement One of the responses I wasn’t surprise by was this one: “Wait, I thought you retired?” This is the question that follows me around like a shadow. I’ve addressed it in interviews, tweets, and blog posts, but I know it’s still unclear to some. Let me continue to try to set the record straight: I never retired. In 2012, I announced that I’d be “stepping away from music.” Yes, I know that sounds retirement-ish, but I purposely didn’t use that word. I kept it intentionally vague because I wasn’t 100% sure what it would look like. I knew it...

A Workout that Lasts

Throughout my life, I’ve gone through seasons when I’ve been really motivated to work out. When I was in high school I just wanted to be buff enough to impress girls (I failed). In the months before my wedding I was trying to work on my honeymoon beach body. These days, I’m just trying to make sure I live past my twenties. My motivations have changed over the years, but what hasn’t changed is how fickle those motivations are. Maybe you’re naturally motivated to work out—shout out to my friends who post pics and videos of their training regimen each day. But if you’re like me, your motivations go up and down like a kid on a trampoline. What if the results from your work out lasted forever, 雖然? Would you be more motivated? Hard Work Pays Off During the Winter Olympics last month I was in awe as I watched lightning quick bobsledders and highflying snowboarders. I was impressed by their athletic excellence, but I was even more impressed when I thought about the disciplined training it must have taken to get there. At the end of each event when the victorious athletes stood on the winner’s...

5 对于碧昂丝é问题。

音乐系我生活中重要嘅一地方,所以我成日喺想点最好噉使用佢。. 冇分析,我好难欣赏艺术。, 记碌士, 问问题。. 碧昂丝é有我哋国家嘅关心,而家,佢显然系一个我哋最钟意嘅星.

我中意討論上帝對我們的生活嘅旨意, 即使有人不同意我的看法. 談話可以得到真正嘅緊張真正快, 雖然-尤其是當我們談論有爭議嘅問題. 話人你認為佢哋錯, 從來都唔係有趣嘅事. 所以我試吓小心我嘅話, 簡單地指出上帝講嘅, 而唔係我自己的意見. 中意鐘錶, 雖然, 在談話中某個階段, 佢哋會拉出王牌: "但是, 聖經唔都話唔判斷? 你方便地飛了首詩, 呵呵?"它永遠唔會衰. 在马修 7 Jesus讲, "不要判斷, 或者你也會被評判。 就算係我哋呢啲從未讀過聖經嘅人, 都能逐字逐句地引用佢講道嘅呢一部分. 可能係我哋一日最廣為人知嘅聖經經文. And it may also be the most misunderstood Misunderstanding this verse means we misunderstand how we’re supposed to love one another. 因此, 我們問呢個問題好重要: 耶穌告訴我們不要評判, 係咩意思??

Why I Married a White Girl

Whenever I post pictures of my family on social media, the responses are always fun. The most common are, “Your son is so handsome!” or “What a beautiful family!” But one of the other common responses is, “Is your wife white?” People ask me at shows sometimes too. The answer is yes. My wife is a mix of Hungarian, Italian, and Polish—which to most people just means yes, she’s white. This is irrelevant to some, but shocking or even disappointing to others. I don’t think anyone should be shocked or disappointed by interracial marriages, but I still wanted to talk about why I married outside my “race. The decision to marry someone from a different ethnic background wasn’t a tough one for me. I never sat down and wrote out a pros and cons list. Though if I did, the fact that my wife has never seen an episode of “Martin” would be in the con category. But honestly, I didn’t agonize over it or seek counsel about whether it was OK. I was convinced that she was the woman for me to marry, even though she wasn’t black. Some would never consider marrying someone who wasn’t the same ethnicity...

5 Pitfalls of Social Media

Guest post from Jessica Barefield Let me start by giving a disclaimer. This article is not about how evil social media is. Used in moderation, with the right heart posture, it can be a wonderful thing. The point of this article is to point out some ways that social media can be a pitfall for the Christian life and to encourage you to examine your heart when it comes to your social media consumption and participation. These are five ways that social media can feed our sinful desires. 1. Social media can waste your time This is nothing we haven’t heard before, but it’s worth repeating. We are reminded in Ephesians 5:16-17 that the days are evil and we should make the best use of the time given to us. Consider for a moment what you could be doing instead of checking all those sites. While waiting at an appointment, we could keep a list of people to pray for on our phone and spend those extra minutes in prayer for our family and friends. Certainly, at one time or another, we are all guilty of spending hours on Facebook in a day and never opening up the Word of...


当你經歷一個困難嘅時候, 人們並不總是知道该讲咩. 結果係毫無意義嘅三幅被或老生常談嘅嘗試讓你振作起來. 我一直對陳詞濫調有意見,那種對講呢啲短語嘅人冇任何意義,實際上都幫唔到聽佢哋聽嘅人. 愚蠢的事情,如, "振作起來"和"它會變得更好嘅"。 真? 你點知噶? 你唔畀你嘅朋友任何好處,畀佢哋光, 蓬鬆嘅希望,冇植根於任何嘢. 当深深的痛苦襲嚟嗰時,我哋需要堅如磐石嘅真理嚟撐我哋. 喺與癌症嘅爭吵中, 克里斯托弗·希钦斯對我哋拋出的一些毫無意義嘅短語都表達咗類似嘅沮喪. 佢使咗幾頁時間攻擊佢書中嘅其中一個, 死亡率. 佢話, "特別是, 我稍微停止發佈公告,'無論乜嘢唔殺我,都會令我更堅強。 佢跟住講, 徜徉在野蠻嘅物理世界中。 有太多嘅嘢可以殺死你, 唔好殺你, 然後讓你大大虛弱。 你就唔可以感受到快樂嗎?? 聽起嚟令人沮喪, 但我認為希钦斯由某種意義上話係對嘅. It is quite possible that we...

You’re Not Righteous Enough

Every now and then I’ll talk to someone who says they want to become a Christian, but they seem to think the time isn’t quite right. When I ask them why, they tell me about all of their sins, all of their shortcomings, and all the messed up things they’ve done in the past. I never argue with them about their sins, but I do push back on their assumptions. They’re assuming that sin somehow disqualifies you from coming to Christ, when the exact opposite is true. Being a sinner doesn’t keep us from Christ; it’s the reason we need Him. If we wait until we look perfect to embrace Him we’ll be waiting forever. In one of my favorite quotes, Charles Spurgeon urges us to stop looking to ourselves, and to start looking to Jesus. 佢話: “O! You say, ‘I do not repent enough.’ That is looking to yourself. ‘I do not believe enough.’ That is looking to yourself. ‘I am too unworthy.’ That is looking to yourself. ‘I cannot discover,’ says another, ‘that I have any righteousness.’ It is quite right to say that you have not any righteousness; but it is quite wrong to look for...

5 Words vs. 5 Lies

The way we respond to a message depends on who it’s from. Let me give you an example. If a stranger walks up to me on the street and says, “Let me borrow the keys to your car real quick. I want to get some money out of your glove box,” I would probably look at him like he’s crazy and walk off. But if my wife were to come up to me and say the same thing, I’d give her the keys without a second thought. We listen and respond differently depending on who’s speaking. How about one more scenario. If one of my good friends insisted that I must submit to his perfect authority over my entire life, I would probably look at him like he’s crazy and go get some new friends. And it would be fine for me to respond that way. But what if God Himself said the very same thing? 2 提摩太 3:16 說, “All Scripture is God-breathed.” That’s not the whole verse, but those five words say enough to meditate on for a lifetime. The fact that the words of Scripture are the words of God Himself is significant. And I think those...

為吹牛而生. 2

約旦航空係標誌性嘅. I didn't wear them much growing up though, 因為我嘅父母拒絕畀我買昂貴嘅鞋子. 我唔鍾意它, 但我知我永遠唔會得到一雙. So I was forced to cope – by pretending they didn't exist. 用咗好幾年嘅時間試圖說服自己銳步交叉訓練器係時尚嘅。. 但隨住年齡的增長, 我意識到乔丹好難被忽視. 我所有嘅朋友都有一兩對, 我嘅一個朋友完全癡迷于佢哋. 当新風格問世時, he wouldn't just stop by the local Foot Locker when he had some free time; 佢嘅生活圍繞住獲得雙新鞋而建立起來。. 佢確保佢知所有約旦嘅發佈日期, 佢會買不同顏色嘅鞋子, 佢經常喺禮拜六早上喺鞋店前露營。. 它令我大吃一驚. 所以最後我不得不問自己, "呢对鞋有咩特別之處?! Clearly I'm missing out on something." 我朋友對乔丹斯嘅癡迷發表了一個聲明. 無論真實與否, he was saying...

為吹牛而生. 1

沒有人喜歡滴水器. 你知道我在說誰. 嗰啲想畀你知嘅人,佢哋識你可能想知嘅人. 當我想到“命名者”時,徜徉有一個人立即浮現在腦海中. 我只見過佢幾次, 但每次我哋都傾過, 我哋傾偈嘅一半被公然嘅名刪除所佔據. 佢識好多“大時代”的人, 佢有一種荒謬嘅能力,可以將呢啲名偷偷地捲入任何對話中。. 下面係一個示例. 話時話, “嘿,夥計, 而家幾點鐘?噉 佢 嘅 答: 喔哦, 大約係中午. 令我想起那天中午喺巴黎同米高积逊一起玩推桿推桿。 詞? 真。, 不僅僅昰名滴理令我哋煩惱. 係啲人吹噓一般. 我哋厭倦了聽到成年男子吹噓佢哋嘅高中橄欖毬時代 (系时候繼續前進了, 先生). 我哋厭倦咗我哋嘅特權朋友,佢哋搵到啲方式嚟推特佢哋訪問嘅每個異國情調嘅地方. 我哋對那些為我哋詳細介紹佢哋購買嘅每件昂貴物品嘅人冇幾多耐心。 (除非佢哋係講唱歌手, 答案係肯定嘅). Whether it’s covertly bragging about...

Should We Move On?

I’ve kept up with the Trayvon Martin saga from the beginning. Like many of you I watched the news coverage, read the articles, and talked about it with friends. It dominated public conversation and provoked a much needed discussion about race in America. The ugly reality of racism was pushed in front of our faces, and even those who like to pretend it doesn’t exist were forced to talk about it. Over a year later, Trayvon’s killer has been tried and found not guilty. Does that mean we should move on from the issues? They found him innocent, so these “race issues" must not be as real as we thought they were, right? That couldn’t be further from the truth. I have no intention of arguing about the facts, Trayvon’s character, or the verdict in this tragic situation, but I do think some discussion should continue. The trial is over, but the conversation shouldn’t be. Why the Interest? I know there are many who wonder why this particular trial has captured the attention of so many. Others wonder why some black folks are so quick to sympathize with Trayvon Martin, despite the fact that he had issues of his own....

Rap & Religion

For as long as I can remember, hip hop has had an obsession with God and religion. I don’t mean to suggest that all rappers are religious devotees. But few rappers – or any artists for that matter – can shake the urge to include God somewhere in their art. It’s natural and good for us to speak about God, but the question is, what are we saying? Some will say, “It’s just music. Don’t take it so seriously!" But what a rapper says on the mic is more serious than you may think. Some have used hip hop to express their sincere religious belief or lack thereof. Islam, The Five Percenters, Christianity, Agnosticism, Atheism, and other religions have all been promoted through the art form. I think hip hop is uniquely suited to express loyalty and devotion to anything we’re passionate about. Partly because of the culture’s compelling rawness and partly because hip hop allows for more words, thus you can actually “teach." But most of the time hip hop is more like a barbershop than a Sunday School class. Rappers recklessly run off at the mouth, whether they know what they’re talking about or not. Sincerity vs. Recklessness...

Are You Living the Good Life?

Earlier this year I went on tour with my new book, 美好生活. Each night, I gave a talk that tried to answer the question, “What does it mean to live the good life?"

你哋大多數人都知道我係說唱歌手同表演者, 但事實係, 在心裡我一直係個傳教士. 只要我一直在做音樂, 我最深切的渴望是宣告福音, 宣告耶穌基督的良善與榮耀。. 透過上帝的恩典, 我有機會在公眾舞台上使用音樂來做到這一點。. 我鍾意佢的每一秒, 我試圖做到一 D 同卓越. 多年嚟, 我 feel 到上帝呼喚我, 裝備我唔只係為咗製作音樂, 都要宣講和寫.

All We Need Is In God

Here’s the audio from a recent sermon I preached on Psalm 142. All of us go through difficult times, but the psalm shows us that even in the worst times we can find everything that we need in God.

Reflection on the Conventions

I watched most of the political conventions these last two weeks. The public speaker in me couldn’t help but over-analyze the messages and oratory skills of the candidates and their supporters. Every person on that stage tried to persuade you with personal stories and/or big promises. I’ll admit, some of their desires were noble, but most of the speeches felt calculated, empty, and purely political- to me at least. Some of the talking points were straight up wrong too. But debating platforms isn’t the point of this post. One of the things I realized was that while the parties were trying to sell you their candidates, they were also trying to sell you their worldviews. According to them, material propserity is the promised land, and their party wants to be your Moses. In their view, the good life is getting wealthy when you work hard, and their candidate is the savior who can take you there. Now there’s nothing sinful about wealth. And being rewarded for hard work is a good thing, but that can’t be where our hope lies. Wealth shouldn’t be our end goal, it should be a means to a greater end. We also can’t afford to...


Here’s a sermon I preached recently on Psalm 95:10-11. My 3 points were simple: 我. Sin Provokes God’s Anger II. Sin is an Alernate Path III. Sin keeps us from God’s rest I pray this is an encouragement to you

The Beautiful Lives of the Unborn

Trip Lee on “Beautiful Life" from Desiring God on Vimeo. The first song I wrote for my most recent album, "美好生活" was a song called “Beautiful Life." Desiring God asked me about that song and my heart behind it. Here’s their entire blog post. And here are the lyrics to the song, which features V. Rose: 钩: Beautiful Life Inside Living Moving Breathing So Let Hope Arise God knew what He was doing When He gave Beautiful Beautiful Life Verse 1: Dear sister, I hear the place you at I know it ain’t nothing easy bout going through that There’s a baby in your womb, but you wasn’t trying do that You’d take it all back if you knew that, but you ain’t have a clue that That time with your boyfriend, that late night When you thought you was making love, that you would make life And now it’s feeling unfair, man it ain’t like You ain’t got a life, 開槍, the timing really ain’t right Can’t quite tell you that I understand your pain But I know you shouldn’t feel discouraged and ashamed And I know that baby in your stomach ain’t a game He’s got...

The Man Who Has God For His Treasure

The man who has God for his treasure has all things in One. Many ordinary treasures may be denied him, or if he is allowed to have them, the enjoyment of them will be so tempered that they will never be necessary to his happiness. Or if he must see them go, one after one, he will scarcely feel a sense of loss, for having the Source of all things he has in One all satisfaction, all pleasure, all delight. Whatever he may lose he has actually lost nothing, for he now has it all in One, and he has it purely, legitimately and forever. A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

係我係我嘅新專輯《美好生活》中嘅歌詞。" 仲有邊個會遭受我嘅愛? 诗 1: My girlfriend’s name starts with an I Shines bright like stars in the sky Stays by my side, when its dark she’s the light She befriends many, and we get lost in her eyes Staring at her instead of watching our steps Run to her when we wake without catching our breath She’s addicting, 真相: we’re fiends But we ain’t sniffing glue, we’re just glued to the screens She rules us, see the proof when she rings We’d probably take two of her over two human beings Her sisters? Some bigger some smaller We sync her with em daily to keep her in order We get her when she drops even if we can’t afford her Ask me if I really need her? 我就好似, "排序" But when I seen her at the mall I had to court her I keep her in accessories, ya boy do spoil her I want her in my life, I’d do anything for her Forget about a dime boy, she’s more like a quarter I’m with her all the time,...

What’s So Good About Good Friday?

It’s normal to remember the day of somebody’s death. Anyone who’s lost a loved one knows that you’ll never forget the day they passed on. It’s the end of a life, and it’s heartbreaking. 当然, as a human race, we don’t only remember loved ones. When important public figures die prematurely, we remember and mourn the day they were taken from us as well. Our nation remembers the day Martin Luther King Jr. was shot, and the day John F Kennedy was killed. But those particular days are never referred to as good. Those were horrific days, where beloved men were murdered by malicious assassins. 然而, two thousand years ago Jesus of Nazareth was murdered by his own malicious assassins, and we remember that day as “Good" Friday. What’s so good about the day when the most talked about man in human history was violently beaten and killed by his enemies? The fact that wicked men would plot to murder the Son of God is tragic and it’s undoubtedly the greatest sin ever committed. But his death is unlike any other death before it or after it . We can call that day “Good” Friday for many reasons. He...


“I’m Good" 係我嘅新專輯最後嘅歌曲之一, 美好生活. lecrae 同我實際上寫了一首完全唔同嘅歌, 我中意佢在一開頭. 但最終我哋決定係非常好嘅; 我哋想推出一些偉大嘅嘢. 所以我打咗幾個節拍為佢, 我都冇寫歌詞, 但, 我哋都鍾意呢人. 是史詩, 積極, 和引人注目. 我告訴他, 我想寫首國歌, 傳達我哋喺基督的安全. 我想鼓勵基督徒停止生活喺恐懼同開始生活喺羅馬人 8. 我哋決定 "我好好"" 主題, 我們請求上帝的幫助, 我哋開始寫喺到埗嘅亞特蘭大工作室嘅對面角落. 嗰晚我哋錄低咗大部分嘅聲, 當一切都完成了, 我愛佢. Hopefully this explanation of the lyrics will help us to digest the content… Verse 1: 我聽講麻煩來了, death is at my door way/ Fear says I’ma perish bro, but that ain’t what my Lord say/ He said I ain’t guilty though...

The Greatest Love of All

Everybody wants to be loved. Whether we admit it or not, all of us have this natural desire to feel adored and appreciated by others. Many of us spend our entire lives searching for someone to love us, in hopes that somebody- anybody- will satisfy this longing inside. Well if you’re planning to lose yourself in romance today and you’re hoping that you’ll finally satisfy that longing, I want you to know that your aim is too low. You won’t find the greatest love of all at a candle light dinner tonight. 然而, there is an all powerful, all satisfying, perfect love available to you. There’s a God who loves you more than you could ever imagine. His love isn’t fickle and you don’t have to woo Him or work for it. Does God Love Us? I know sometimes many of us wonder whether or not God really loves us. He seems so far away. And maybe we’d stop doubting if He did something to make it clear for us. The truth us, He already has. The Bible says, “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." And again it says,...


"Robot" is the first song of my upcoming album “The Good Life" releasing April 10. Lyrics to the song and a free download are below I am not your robot, I am not a clone You are not my puppeteer and I am not a drone Got a new master and I follow Him alone I want a good life till I’m gone Verse 1: Hey I was born less than human I know it sounds crazy But I was really born a robot as a baby No real life in me, I just played my role No self control, I just did what I was told I got my first order, I was just a day old But I didn’t have a chance, cause my heart was way cold My heart took the order, I couldn’t break the mold Sold under bondage and I couldn’t take control So I was just chilling in my robot clothes With my robot friends, and my robot flows Living robot ways, cause that’s all I know Till I heard I could be freed from my robot soul, I’m like… Hook Why you always trying to control me? You are not my boss that’s...


For the first half of 2011, I did no songs, no features, no shows, no nothing. I moved to Washington DC and took about 5 months off for a pastoral internship. Even though I wasn’t traveling the world and standing in front of a sea of people every night, it was one of the most fruitful seasons of my life. When the internship ended I started traveling again and slowly started working on new music. Around fall I kicked into full gear working on my fourth solo album. And after months of hard work, the album is pretty much done. I can’t even express how excited I am to release it. I’m always looking to give people something I haven’t given them before. I don’t want to remake an album I’ve already made. I want to give you a new album, with new music, and new ways of celebrating the same old truth. In 2006 on my first album, 如果佢哋淨係知, I wanted to tell people about a glorious God who I wanted them to know. In 2008, “20/20" came out and I wanted to encourage folks to see the Lord with real vision. 2 years later, “Between...

Courageous Leadership

Here’s MLK’s courageous leadership on display (not to mention some of the best writing I’ve ever read). He refuses to embrace unjust laws and refuses to wait patiently. He takes the initiative on behalf of a whole race of people. As a black man, I’m deeply grateful to God for the work accomplished through him. And as a Christian, I want to fight for justice just as hard as He did, keeping in mind that only Jesus can bring perfect justice. And He will. This is an excerpt from MLK’s famous letter. You should read the whole thing when you get a chance. “We have waited for more than 340 years for our constitutional and God given rights. The nations of Asia and Africa are moving with jetlike speed toward gaining political independence, but we still creep at horse and buggy pace toward gaining a cup of coffee at a lunch counter. Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, “Wait.” But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse,...

Inspired By the Lowercase King

Today we celebrate the legacy of the foremost leader of the Civil Rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Lord used this man to inspire a nation, and move a people towards equality. There is still work to be done, but his contribution was invaluable. No hero is perfect, and Dr. King was no exception, but I admire him in many ways and I’m inspired by his legacy. Here are three things about his life that inspire me. 1. Passion for Justice Dr. King was disgusted by the injustice that was rampant in our world, and dedicated his life to fighting against it. In the Bible, he saw God’s vision for His world, He saw the prophets call for the end of oppression, and He was passionate to see that justice come to pass. I admire this passion for justice, and pray God would continue to work it in my own heart. I want to fight for the oppressed and preach Good News to the hopeless. 2. Leadership Despite his youthfulness, Dr. King’s prophetic speeches and crystal clear vision led him to emerge as the leader of the movement. He didn’t sit back and complain, he stepped up and...

Even When

Even when our happiness and comfort leave us, we can be absolutely sure our God won’t. Ezra 9:9

One Life: Share It

A couple of weeks ago, I spoke at the Campus Outreach National Conference about every believer’s responsibility to evangelize. My text was 2 科林蒂安人。 5:18-21. Here’s the video from that session.

The discussion was about campus ministry, the local church, the Great Commission, etc.: Pastors Panel from Campus Outreach on Vimeo. Plus, I recommend you check out all the other media from the conference. There was tons of great teaching that I think you’ll find to be edifying.

We Fight

We fight to prove how righteous we are, forgetting that the righteous are not who Jesus came for. 馬特 9:13

3 Ways to Deny God

Have you denied the God of the Universe? Believe it or not, this is an important question for all of us to think about. It’s clear in Scripture that eternal life is freely given to those who trust God and believe His Good News, and just judgment is carried out on those who deny Him. But there is more than one way to deny God. Here are three that I found in the New Testament. 1. Denying that Jesus is Who He said He Was "Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? That is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also." 1 約翰 2:22-23 There are many people in our world today who think of themselves as spiritual or even religious people. They believe that God exists, and they attempt to worship him in their own way. Maybe they even see Jesus as a great teacher or a prophet from God. But if they don’t believe that Jesus is who HE said He is, they are denying Him. Seeing Jesus merely as a great...


基督徒, 问题唔系我哋系会面对诱惑, 但系当我哋做嘅时候,我哋会点样回应. 路克 4:1-2, 我地读到Jesus嘅诱惑同佢反应. 呢个系我几个月后系教堂嗰篇经文上所传嘅简短布道声. 我想睇Jesus嘅诱惑, 反思佢敢唔听, 考虑下我哋可以从呢个场景中学到咩. 乜系我哋应该记住嘅时候,诱惑? 以下系要点: 我. God Allows and Uses Temptation as Part of His Plan II. Weakness is Not an Excuse to Give In to Temptation III. The Tempter Has Already Been Defeated The Temptation of Jesus by BragOnMyLord I pray it’s an encouragement to you

How Are We Righteous In The Sight Of God?

How are we righteous in the sight of God? It is assuredly in the same respect in which Christ was a sinner. For he assumed in a manner our place, that he might be a criminal in our room, and might be dealt with as a sinner, not for his own offenses, but for those of others, inasmuch as he was pure and exempt from every fault, and might endure the punishment that was due to us- not to himself. It is in the same manner, assuredly, that we are now righteous in him- not in respect of our rendering satisfaction to the justice of God by our own works, but because we are judged of in connection with Christ’s righteousness, which we have put on by faith, that it might become ours. John Calvin Read this slowly and let it sink in! I came across this quote while preparing for my message on 2 科林蒂安人。 5:18-21 for the Campus Outreach National Conference. Good stuff

我将佢, 然后, Unbelief In Jesus

我将佢, 然后, 咁唔好信Jesus (唔信Jesus) 系一个拧转身远离Jesus,以寻求满意嘅其他事. Jesus嘅信仰嚟Jesus,满足我哋要同我哋嘅想. 信仰唔系主要与头脑中嘅事实一致; 佢主要系心嘅胃口,紧紧捉住Jesus. [Jesus讲,] 嚟我度嘅,使唔好肚饿;信我嘅人使永不口渴到。!’ John Piper

Why I Got Married So Young: From My Wife’s Perspective

About a month ago I wrote a blog telling folks why I got married so young. I was deeply encouraged by the responses from all who read it and my prayer has been that the Lord would help us to think more biblically about marriage. If you didn’t get to read that original post check it out here: Why Did I Get Married So Young? Well after so many folks reached out to me and told me how helpful it was for them, I thought it would be just as helpful to let my wife, Jessica, answer the same question from her perspective. So here it is. What made my wife decide to get married so young? She says… 1. I found a godly man When I first met Trip, I was not planning on getting married anytime soon. But from the very first time we went out, I knew there was something different about him. He was passionate about the Gospel in a way that I had never seen before in a guy my age. I also never met someone with such a wise perspective on dating. Thanks to his discipleship before college he knew exactly what he thought...


Here’s some video from a sermon I preached earlier this year in San Diego. The theme of the conference was “Driven", so I chose to preach on Romans 12:1-2. What does it look like for a believer to be “driven?" My main points were that the believer should… 1. Be Driven By Mercy 2. Be Driven to Worship 3. Be Transformed Hope its helpful!

Thank You

I just want to say thank you to everyone who prayed for us while we were on tour in the great continent of Africa. The Lord graciously answered many of those prayers, and used you along with us to make an impact in six different countries. The tour has now come to an end and we are headed home tonight. We’d appreciate your continued prayers for safe travel and for health. A few of us haven’t been feeling too well and we want to make it home healthy. I look forward to posting a blog to tell you all about our trip. Until then we appreciate your prayers

Help Us Out with Unashamed Africa

Right now it’s 12:34 am in Botswana. It’s our first full day in Africa and the Lord is already at work. The whole Reach crew landed in Johannesburg last night and flew to Botswana this morning. We got to meet tons of supporters this afternoon at a signing we did at a local Christian bookstore and we had some great interviews. Tomorrow evening is the first concert of the tour and we are amped. We really want this tour to be fruitful and we would love your help. How can you help? You must also help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many. 2 科林蒂安人。 1:11 We firmly believe that the Lord uses the prayers of His people to carry out His plans. So you can help us by praying. Here are some basic ways you can pray for us and with us: 1. That the Lord would keep us healthy and strong 2. That we would posture ourselves as servants 3.

Why Did I Get Married So Young?

Yesterday I made a late night stop at the store to grab a few things and I had a very interesting conversation with the cashier. We made small talk as she scanned my items, and then she offered me a discount card but I told her my wife already had one. That’s when the conversation got fun. I know this conversation all too well because I’ve had it many times before. It goes something like this… Person: What!? You’re married? Me: Yeah I’ve been married for two and a half amazing years. Person: How old are you? You look like a baby. Me: I’m twenty three. Person: You’re so young! Why in the world would you do that? Me: Why wouldn’t I? In 2009, I got married at the barely legal and barely respectable age of twenty one years old. During my courtship, engagement, and short marriage, I’ve been asked time and time again questions like, “Why get married so young? What’s the rush?", and my personal favorite, “You should have waited and enjoyed your life!" Some of the folks asking these questions were strangers, but some were family. Was I crazy to get married at such a “young" age?...

I Love Music

Every now and then I go back and listen to albums and songs that really moved me artistically and spiritually when I heard them. One of those albums is The Solus Christus Project by Shai Linne. It is one of my favorite hip hop albums- period. The production is unique (though not commerical), the content is incredible, and Shai’s lyrical skill is on full display. This is one of those albums that makes rappers ask themselves, “Why am I still rapping again?" I can’t quote the whole record in this post, but here’s one of my favorite verses from the album. It’s shai’s verse from “Mic Check 1,2": He gave His life as a ransom, I’m hype and I’m dancing When reciting my anthems of Christ, the Righteous Lamb who lights my lantern Who else but the Lord of the nations Can hype a heathen drunkard to write without even one word of self-glorification? My feeble words- inadequate indeed to describe the Immaculate Seed Destined to do miraculous deeds At the age of twelve, he had the old heads amazed at His insights Obeyed His parents, even though He created their wind pipes A true Anomaly- and who can ponder the Servant...

Unashamed Australia Recap

A couple of weeks ago I took off from LAX and headed to the other side of the globe with some of my favorite people. Tedashii, Pro, KB, Thi’sl, DJ PDogg, our tour manager Steadman, and I were headed to Australia to serve Jesus. What we did We spent two weeks down under traveling through Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. In each of the cities we were part of large concerts ranging from 5,000-10,000 young people. Before the concerts, we went to some schools and invited them out to the shows. What we were allowed to say at many of the schools was limited (because they were non-Christian state schools), but we did our best to encourage the students and point them to Christ. At the concerts, all five of us hit the stage as one rowdy, unashamed crew. We rocked those stages to the best of our ability while trying to be as clear as possible about the Gospel that moves us to do what we do. More than anything we wanted folks to know Jesus! We always try to make sure folks leave impressed, not by our skills, but by our Lord. What we experienced We got to...
