Dare You To Move

Dare You To Move (Learning To Breathe Album Version)A contemporary Christian song by Switchfoot. In my opinion, I feel that the lyrics speak of a person who's experienced problems in his spiritual walk with God (sounds familiar?), and is encouraged to press on in the faith even so. In Romans 7:19-20, Paul speaks of this struggle that all of us face. "For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it."

Paul understands that in our walk and relationship with God, there will always be times when we will have to struggle with sin in our lives. There are two responses that we can give in such a situation. Either wallow and give up to our sinful nature and desires, or with God's strength, pick ourselves up and press on toward holy living. Paul rightly summaries his, and what should be our response in v. 24-25. "What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin."

Jesus has already done away with the penalty of sin which is eternal death and separation from God, through His sacrifice for us. Let us admit our weaknesses, and look to Jesus' redeeming blood and sacrifice, to carry us through. Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell, where can you run to escape from yourself? Where you gonna go? Salvation is here!

sarah said...

dude you're good at this!

Paul said...

I don't mean to be picky but what happened to "salvation is here" in the song?

Graham Choo said...

Hey Paul, thanks for taking note of that. Daniel didn't include that part it, hence the tabs and PDF doesn't include it.
I suspect it's because the part sounds a little different if it's just one guitar playing. It would require the full band with different effects.
