#361: "Truth Be Told" by Matthew West

More Than a Song - Discovering the Truth of Scripture Hidden in Today's Popular Christian Music

There's a shortage of truth in the world today. Of course, the definition of truth seems to up for grabs for some, but today we're talking about sincerity in action without pretense. Matthew West sings about this in his song "Truth Be Told." Jesus teaches about it in the Gospel of Matthew. Spend some time this week examining the words of Jesus with an open heart. In this episode I discuss: Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture - this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include: Consider the historical background Follow the cross-references Utilize a trusted outside resource (like a commentary or Study Bible) Read in context Summarize the text in your own words Ask questions of the text Remember, the people in the Bible were real The 30 Day Music Challenge - ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE HERE Matthew West's story behind the song - YouTube Video The book Matthew West wrote that he mentioned in the video - "Hello My Name Is" by Matthew West The verse in Isaiah Matthew West refers to in the video - Isaiah 29:13 How Jesus uses two metaphors to talk about what He thinks of being clean, put together, and FINE only on the outside - Matthew 23:27-28 The historical context of why touching tombs would have been a big deal to Christ's audience - Numbers 19:16 Why it was their practice to whitewash tombs - Douglas Sean O'Donnell "Preaching The Word" Commentary on Matthew Really considering the root of what Jesus is teaching and how it may apply to our own "clean on the outside and a hot mess on the inside" moments Zooming out all the way to Matthew 21 to see the context of our focus teaching Summarizing Matthew 23:1-11 in our own words Recognizing the seven "woe"s in Matthew 23 Checking out another "woe" from the Old Testament - Hosea 7:13 Hearing the "rolling thunder of Christ's wrath" in the text Recognizing the hypocrisy in our own lives and treating it with the weight Christ demands Additional Resources Matthew West makes the case for honesty - KLove Blog Lyrics - WGBL.org "Truth Be Told" by Matthew West Story Behind the Song - YouTube Article on the seven "woe"s in Matthew 23 - GotQuestions.org Article on what "woe" means in Scripture - Patheos.com Commentary on the book of Matthew - Amazon.com Weekly Challenge Read Matthew 21-25 to understand the complete context of Jesus' teaching. Focus in on Matthew 23 and really study it (I've included resources I used "Additional Resources" above). Identify and write down summaries of the seven woes. Hear the rolling thunder of Christ's wrath and take His rebuke seriously. Pray and ask the Lord to reveal any hypocrisy in your life.

Email us at hello@christywright.com to let us know what you think of the show.We’re kicking off the new year with an important topic: Where does your identity come from? Do we take our cues from Pinterest or Instagram influencers or what our boss says about us? We'll get some life-changing answers from God’s Word. Plus, I get to sit down with award-winning songwriter Matthew West to talk about his new book on identity: Hello, My Name Is. The First Step to Being Yourself When we’re feeling lost, we cling to our titles and our roles, and we hold on to what we can accomplish or what others say about us. But there’s a deeper truth to keep us grounded, even when people and circumstances change around us. In today’s teaching, I’ll share a story about one of the first times I ever heard God speak to me and the powerful truth he taught me about identity. How to Embrace the Plan That God Has for You with Matthew West Y’all, I am so excited to sit down with award-winning musician Matthew West to talk about his new album, Brand New, and new book, Hello, My Name Is: Discover Your True Identity. We get all sorts of labels from the world around us—from what we’ve done or failed to do, from what we wear, drive or eat, from where we work, or who we hang out with. But, as Matthew points out, discovering who you are starts with knowing whose you are. On your best and your worst day, you can know that God loves you. You can choose to believe what He says about you instead of creating an identity for yourself. This is the foundation for the greatest confidence in the world. This Is Who You Are in God’s Eyes . . . But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. . . Because you are precious in my eyes, And honored, and I love you.” — Isaiah 43:1, 4 (ESV) Precious and honored probably aren’t the words you’d normally use to describe how you’re feeling. But regardless of how you feel, what you’ve done or haven’t done, or what’s been done to you, you are a child of God—if you have chosen to enter into relationship with Him. He loves you. So, to help us really grasp our identity as children of God, here are a few journal questions to think about: Where do you normally find your identity? How does it feel to think that God is all yours, all the time? How does it feel to imagine that you never get on God’s nerves? In what areas of life do you need God to remind you who you are?

50. Hello my name is... Matthew West

Pardon the Mess with Cynthia Yanof

Today’s podcast is a must-listen to if for no other reason than hearing Matthew West describe 2020 in song.  Yes, he sings in real-time for us, and it’s funny and total greatness.   Most of us have loved Matthew West’s music for many years, but he takes it to a whole new level when talking about his family, raising kids while touring, and his battle with feeling like he has to constantly do more and be more. He’s vulnerable about growing up as a preacher’s kid and going through the motions more than having a deep relationship with the Lord. He also gives us great encouragement on living our lives with no conflicting reports, especially as we’re raising kids who are watching how we live.   Matthew West is a breath of fresh air in a year that needs some transparency and reminders of what really matters. His challenge to us is a worthy one in these days: don’t leave 2020 unchanged.   You’re going to love Matthew West on Pardon the Mess today! Check out Matthew West’s new album, podcast, and much more!
