"Come As You Are" by Crowder

Here’s the song that’s been stuck in my head for the past week. There’s no doubt that David Crowder can write a beautiful song when he wants to. Listen to these lyrics:

Lay down your burdens, lay down your shame
All who are broken, lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home, you’re not too far
So lay down your hurt, lay down your heart
And come as you are

Beautiful stuff. I was reminded of this song in Bible study Sunday morning when we were discussing Hebrews 9:13-14:

13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God,cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Many of us feel we are too broken and damaged to accept Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Crowder’s song echoes Hebrews 9:14 … the blood of Christ is capable of cleaning us from the inside out!
