, releases his latest album The Same Love
. Paul Baloche
once again brings God’s love, patience and grace alive through these inspiring and soul filled tracks. Even tackling more sensitive areas on just how much Jesus showed His love by dying on the cross for us all. Prepare for a spiritual journey as your heart and soul is set for worship.
The album opens with The Same Love
setting the stage and tone for the remaining tracks. “The same love that set the captives free. The same love that opened eyes to see.” The song speaks of God calling us all to Him. He calls the weak, the strong, even the faithless to seek Him. His love is unconditional and this song conveys this in a wonderful and uplifting way. The piano intro and contemporary styles of this song will draw you in, and then the lyrics keep you listening.
The second track, “We Are Saved,” tells the story of Jesus Christ dying on the cross for us to be saved. “Our sin has been forgiven” and “We stand by grace alone” lyrically paints a picture that shows when Jesus died, it was for us all. We all sin and no one is perfect, yet Jesus still died for us so our sins can be forgiven.
“Your Blood Ran Down” is so simplistic in nature, yet tells an entire story of the pain Jesus endured for all of us to be saved. The music is soft and sweet and Paul Baloche
sings with a calm, hushed, and humbled tone. It may only be around two minutes long, but those two minutes will fill you with love and thankfulness.
“Christ the Lord,” one of the more upbeat songs of the album, will have you singing and rejoicing in Jesus’ resurrection. “Christ the Lord is risen today. The Lamb of God has taken our sins away.” With these lyrics, you cannot help but be humbled and thankful for everything Jesus has done. He rose from the dead changing our souls from sinners to the saved for all those who believe in Him.
Closing out the album “Shout for Joy” speaks for itself. The urge and passion to shout for joy will fill you as you listen to each word. “Shout for joy for the Son of God is the Saving One.” The message provided is a wonderful way to end out the album.
