Reckless Love is about God’s love that is strong enough to break any chain, and kind enough to ease any pain. This song is a realization to the fact that God’s love for us has no boundaries. We never need to go searching for His love. When it seems like we are lost in the “love” of the world, it is His love that pulls us out. His love is constantly and continually seeking us, even in the midst of all of our sin. His love never leaves us or forsakes us, for He IS LOVE. The chorus of the song goes as follows:
“Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
His love leaves the ninety-nine…. That’s powerful! The parable in Luke 15, “the Parable of the Lost Sheep”, Jesus says,
“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
At one point in our lives, we’ve been that lost sheep, hopeless, helpless, and searching to find a love that we cannot find on our own. As a Body, we need to understand that His love is for everyone, and for us to be used as vessels to help others find what doesn’t need looking for. It should be considered a blessing.
A little bit about WorshipMob:
“Founded by Colorado Springs worship leaders Sean Mulholland and Garrett Chynoweth almost four years ago, the group began as a weekly gathering between two local worship teams. Today, the “Mob” represents 30 local churches through 70-80 ministry leaders who meet weekly to worship, pray together and encourage one another. The meetings are also “open to anyone who wants to come soak in the presence of God,” shares Mulholland.
WorshipMob seeks to locally unite worshipers from many diverse churches and denominations to pray together, encourage each other, worship Jesus in spirit and truth, and record and produce worship for the world, providing free access to the music. Its mission is also to create a worship movement that unifies the global body of believers to the glory of God.”
