Where we run into problems is when we take a cue from the secular entertainment/celebrity culture and try to start emulating David Crowder (or Mark Driscoll, or anyone else who is a well-known Christian going about his/her business serving the Lord). I count myself guilty of this (see track 1, More of You album, 519). It's especially bad when worship leaders try and do worship services like Crowder does in Waco, TX, or think they aren't successful until they can "pull this off".
It's tempting. But, these guys are incredibly gifted. You can't imitate the best, and you (I) just look foolish trying. God gave us all a measure of gifting in various things (1 Corinthians 12) and we need to be busy about using our gifting for the edification of His Church. Let's thank God for good ol' Dave, enjoy and be edified by what he does. . . .and not try and emulate him or anyone else. David is certainly an unique individual, and we are too.
Thanks Dave, for this sweet video, . . . a great picture of Christian love, and a beautiful song with sick audio and video production.
ps. I can't seem to fix the margins on this blog to accomodate "wider" stuff. Here's the link if the video is clipped for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8cAU475dQo&feature=player_embedded
If anyone can help me with this. . .I'd love to know what I"m messing up.
