Making his first appearance to #MusicMonday is Charlie Hall and his new song, “The Death of Death.”

I have long been a fan of Charlie Hall. For one, do you think that you could rock both a fedora and extreme facial hair? But also to this day, his CD Flying Into Daybreak is probably my favorite worship album ever created. I love his way of crafting great melodies with very powerful lyrics that make me think about my faith in new ways.
This song, to me, is a really beautiful portrayal of the gospel (the good news) of Jesus Christ. We had a problem that we were hopeless to fix; our sin had separated us from God and prevented us from finding our way into a relationship with him. But the beauty of the gospel is that while man has sinned, God has saved. He upholds both perfect justice and perfect grace through the death of Christ on the cross.
The entire song is a beautiful restatement of Romans 5:8:
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Let’s rejoice in the story of the gospel together today.
