Gospel Music: Rap through Book of Romans!

   Here is a song by Shai Linne going through the entire Book of Romans. Lyrics to go along with the song below:

Im not ashamed of the gospel yall,
Its the power of God, which can save us all
In the gospel the righteousness of Gods revealed,
And who lives by faith, the righteous will.

Awake from your slumber eyes
A letter from the wise
The book of Romans
The Christian faith summarized
By Paul upon serving the Christ Jesus
Called to be an apostle
Set apart from the gospel
Chapter 1:16 and 17 is the thesis
Cuz our sins are colossal
Hearts are harder than fossils
Thats everybodys plight
Cant solve it, Goodnight
How do sinners get right
In a holy Gods sight
Amazing is the answer, see
Romans states it candidly
The first three chapters
Gods case against humanity
Whether its idolatry
Or religious hypocrisy
No one can possibly
See the charges and say its not for me.
Everybodys guilty
Everybodys filthy
Before God on judgment
Is where everybody will be
For those who believe in Jesus
Who suffered and died
Yo it feels so good to be justified Yeah

Yo, at the cross
The wrath of God was spent on Jesus
On behalf of all who repent and believe this
We receive his
Perfect righteousness (by faith)
In exchange, believers cursed lives are his
Behold the blessedness
For Earths cold residence
Chapter 4, Paul defends it from the Old Testament
Up to this point we saw the need for justification
In Chapter 5, and following we see its implications
In service, in purity we yearn for maturity
And powered by Christ who gives eternal security
Slowly but surely he removes every vice
Raised to newness of life
Through our union with Christ
But Chapter 7 finds us
Struggling with sin
Its bugging us within
But he loves us til the end
Even with complications
Through sins occupation
For Gods concentrated
Theres no condemnation
The Holy Spirit inside
He comforts like no other
He convinces us were Gods children
Even when we suffer
Nothing in creation
Could ever separate us (never)
From the love of God
In Christ Jesus who saved us
In Chapter 9, we see God is sovereign in his mercy
His dealings with Israel shows hes working out his purpose
By the end of 11 its Jew and Gentile together
United in Christ to his glory forever (forever)

Yo so in view of Gods mercies
We remove our worldly uniforms and throw on crucified jerseys
Holy and acceptable, Ruled by the divine
Jesus, being transformed by the renewal of the mind
Yes, you was designed, obedience to the scriptures
With love as the key ingredient in the mixture
The Godly mans picture, under the new covenant
Mindful of God, we submit to the government
Not passing judgment, on weaker brothers
Instead we spread love to em to keep em from stumbling
When we do this, God will truly then smile
Because Christ is glorified through Jew and Gentile
The God of peace, at his judgment seat
Will soon crush Satan under our feet (No Doubt)
This is just an overview, go and read Romans through
And I pray the God of Romans will grab a hold of you
