This Palm Sunday, Preacher/Poet Jaeson Ma has shared a new video for the song “God Over Everything”. The song will be a part of his upcoming mixtape album, Confession x Resurrection. It’s not a full-scale visual production, rather it’s more of a glorified lyric video – and it serves it’s purposes well, giving you another way to soak in Ma’s spoken word verses. This song follows the release of “Love Me God” from last month.
God over money. Christ over self. Spirit over flesh.
I don’t need the world. I need God. I don’t need the fashion. I need passion. I don’t need the diamonds and the glitz. I need purpose. I don’t need the games. I need reality. I’m sick and tired of the inauthenticity, duplicity, and hypocrisy. When people think of Christianity, they think of a mockery. I’m not shocked to see, the pointing of fingers, because of all our judgments on sinners. He who has not sinned let him cast the first stone. If someone is getting stoned, it will be me. I’m more messed up than your eyes can see. Don’t think I’m a saint, I’m far from it. I might be a pastor, but my life in one second could be a disaster. I’m the first one out the gate to say that I’m not perfect. I didn’t say I’m not worth it. I know I’m a son, but I am saying that I’m just like anybody else, trying my best to do this thing called life. It’s not easy. The Devils lurking on every corner trying to get me, but he doesn’t sweat me, because this cross protects me. But I got to check myself daily, cause my heart betrays me, so many times I don’t know why I do the things that I do. What I want to do, I don’t do. What don’t want to do, I do. So where’s my salvation? I can’t find it in myself for sure. Every time I try I seem to fail, I seem to fall flat on my face, I seem to be staring into hell, my own mirror is my own hell. My thoughts are obstructed. My mind is abducted. I want to be good, but my flesh is arguing. Demons tormenting my soul, sometimes I feel like a lost soul. But how can this be? I’m supposed to be perfect, supposed to have it all together, supposed to be this poster child church boy, who’s never, done a damn thing wrong in his whole life, well is that right?
What if I told you your Christianity was just another religion? What if I told you it wasn’t any different than any other religion? What if there were Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims and Atheists living better than you, than what would you say? What would you do? Cause the truth is, many of these other religions do do better, but here is my point. Christ is not a religion, Christianity is not about what you can do, it’s about what Christ has done. Religion is two letters — DO. Christianity is four letters — DONE.
