We simply cannot base our faith on another man’s faith nor raise anyone doing God’s work on any pedestal! Lecrae being the most visible Christian artist right now faces a challenge. And he addresses it beautifully I think.
Let’s look at a few scriptures and then I’ll let Crae take it from there.
1 Corinthians 3:5-7 KJV
Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
I’m pretty sure my Facebook feedback is enough for 2 complete chapters in a book. Lol. People are worried about so many of my moves as if anyone else’s moves mean less. I’m not more special in Gods eyes because of my platform. I think many are worried I’ll let them down. There isn’t a person alive that WONT in some way let you down. That’s why Jesus (not Lecrae) should be your hope.
Has “fame” gotten to me?! Lol.
I have a hard time saying I’m even remotely “famous”. Kanye West is famous, Katy perry is famous, I’m just…Lecrae. Then of course I’d have to ignore the various times people spot me out in public and tell me stories of how encouraged they are at what God is doing thru me & the thousands of people who show up at concerts. I get it. I just have a hard time accepting it. You have to understand years ago when I just rapping on street corners and the local halfway house, I could have cared less about being in a magazine. I wanted to impact people not impress people. Now I have to stand back and wonder who’s really impacted and who is simply impressed. Not necessarily impressed with my gifts but with the illusion of fame they perceive I have. I’m just a man with flaws, misconceptions and a murky lens that God is clearing up daily. Love to you all!
