When the world comes at us with the accusations, it is clear they do not know who Christ really is. It’s becoming more and more obvious that the world around us has no idea what it means to be a member in the body of Christ. It may also be true that some folks who go to church every Sunday don’t have a proper understanding as well. How do we know this is true? The darkness that veils the eyes and keeps light out of the soul is the indicator.
Haven’t You Heard by Minister Myles Holt
Walking to the corner store, happy as can be
Can’t wait to spend the dollar my Papa gave me
Someone is missing, Charlie the wino where is he
The clerk says, “Haven’t you heard? Jesus got up and set him free.”
Ran out the door and danced up the street
Felt like a fire was in my feet
The old man yelled, “Boy you don’t miss a beat.”
I say, “Haven’t you heard? Jesus got up and setting people free.”
I ran to Devan’s house to share the good news
It seemed my friend always had the blues
His daddy was in prison and his mama couldn’t buy him shoes
But he says grinning, “Haven’t you heard? Jesus got up and set my daddy free.”
Ice cold soda pop in my hand
I was the happiest kid in the land
Ms. Sugar was sweeping the yard and singing like a gospel band
She say, “Don’t tarry to long. Haven’t you heard? Jesus got up and setting people free.”
I say, “Ima go find Jesus, see him with my own two eyes.”
I ran around looking for Charlie the Wino, Mr Charlie now that he wise
I went by Devan’s house, His daddy gone to work, got his eyes on the prize
Ms. Sugar went back inside, I hear her praying, thanking God as she cries
I went to the clerk, “Did you see Jesus?”
He tell me to go look in the mirror in the back.
I grin so hard my cheeks hurt.
Haven’t you heard? Jesus got up in you and me
We be Jesus that setting people free.
