Crowns (Hillsong)

Artist: Hillsong Worship
Words and Music: Michael Fatkin, Scott Groom, Benjamin Hastings
Album:  Let There Be Light
Release: 2016
Tempo: 70 beats per minute
Key: D
Details:  To be honest this is the most crucial point for Christian. Money or God? What matters to us? It is clearly in Mathew 6:24 that we cannot serve two masters. Not only money but also what is the most important thing to us, can we disregard it for the sake of Christ.

Sometimes living in riches and fame make us forget that this is all temporary, that in the end, it is how we are going to spend our eternity with God or the other side? Sometimes we are too much carried away in this world like we are going to live proper but what it Mark 8:36, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

The song reminds us about the riches we can earn through Jesus. It is more than anything that this world can offer. For us Christian, our wealth is in the cross.
