If Your God Can’t Save Kanye West, He’s Not Big Enough
"Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst." 1 Timothy 1:15

On October 25th, 2019, Kanye West released his latest album titled "JESUS IS KING." It's not your typical worship album, and I don't think we can expect to see our local praise bands play anything off of it anytime soon (youth groups might be a different story), but it's still gospel, plain and simple. A complete 360 compared to his other albums. Some might go so far as to call it a complete transformation. Why does this shock us?

It's 2019 people. You don't need handbells and an organ to sing praise music. You just need a heart drenched in faithfulness that's turned to The Lord. And that's what Kanye has done.

I have seen my fair share of people on social media question the authenticity of this supposed conversion. But to be honest with you, I don't really understand the "supposed" part of this. When Jesus saves you, HE SAVES YOU! REGARDLESS of your past sins or the way you used to live your life. I mean come on people, y'all know Paul was Saul first, right? He MURDERED CHRISTIANS!!!! He was the worst sinner of all, he even said so himself. If my God can save Saul, He can certainly save Kanye West. And he can save you and me too.


Kanye has proclaimed the Gospel with his music and his speech, he has taken his family to be baptized, and at his Sunday Service this past weekend, 1,000 people accepted Jesus as King. Fellow Christian, you should be rejoicing in the fact that thousands of people are typing "Jesus is King" into the internet, Youtube, Spotify, and Apple Music. You should be praising God for the work He is doing in America. And you should be praying that He would be so gracious as to use you next.

Before I started writing this article I typed "Kanye West Jesus is King" into my search engine, and one of the top results was an article titled, "Kanye West's 'Jesus is King' Divides the Christian Community." Come on you guys. When in the history of ever has salvation divided us?!?! Why is it so different this time? Because he's famous? Because his Pre-Jesus lifestyle was worse than yours? Dear child of God, I beg you to remember all sin is equal in the eyes of our Heavenly Father. You, me, and Kanye were all destined to hell in the exact same way until God saved our souls. Jesus died for ALL, not some. If the blood of Jesus Christ can cover Paul, heck, can cover me, it can certainly cover Kanye. And you should be thankful it can cover you too.

After Paul was saved, so many people heard the gospel, so many people proclaimed Jesus is King. So let Kanye share the gospel, and let people proclaim Jesus is King because of his witness for Christ. Our world could certainly use a modern day Paul to shake up and wake up our generation labeled "Post-Christian."

Now I'm not saying He's perfect and he's the next Bob Goff or Francis Chan or anything, but I am saying his salvation should stir praise in your heart. If it doesn't, you might need to double check how many stones you're carrying, and who you were planning on throwing them at. God's will WILL be done, with or without you, and He can choose to use whomever He pleases. BE EAGER to be a part of what He is doing and celebrate who He is moving through. Rejoice in The Lord always, I will say it again, REJOICE.

When you think of Paul, you never think of Saul. That is the power of Jesus. He can do that though you, through me, and through Kanye West. Jesus can do anything. Jesus is King.

"When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
