In case they look familiar, it’s because Justin Crawford, Peggy Crawford and Gary Crawford are the trio that make up Crawford And Co, formerly Known as Canaan Bound out of Joplin, Missouri.

I had the pleasure of catching up with them at a recent concert in Carthage Missouri.  The Trio host the monthly concert, known as the “First Friday Sing” at Fairview Christian Church and are highly active in ministry with far-reaching efforts.

I’ve included a few of their songs in this episode,and love to share them in just about each new release of Gospel Music Roundup.  Gary Crawford pens almost all of the group’s music, and is the lead singer on many of the songs as well.  Check them out at Crawford & Co’s Website, by clicking here!

There is a spirit of unrest in the land- and no, it’s not political. It’s not the economy. It’s something that no government or legislation or committee can fix or repair or develop a referendum on. It’s a matter of the heart.

You Are Loved. You are a child of the King, and He loves you.  There are also thousands of brothers and sisters in Christ who love you too, just give them a chance!Despite all the media noise about political unrest at home and abroad, or about the condition of the world economy, there is one thing that we all need that can carry us through the worst of situations or disasters. That is Love.

Our bodies may get cold or hot or ill or hungry, but when we have a confidence that we are loved, and have love inside us, we can bear up under the worst of circumstances.

I Peter 1:22-25 NASB

22Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart, 23for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.

24For,
“ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS,
AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS.
THE GRASS WITHERS,
AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,

25BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.”
And this is the word which was preached to you.

 

Don’t listen to those who would prejudice you by telling you that others hate you. Don’t be swayed by what you hear in the news media. Yes, people- men and women- are going to disappoint and hurt youl; there may be moments in time where you are unsure of just where you will find the love that your mind and body need for strength. But when mere humans fail you- US, that is the time that you need to realize that the one constant TRUE love is the Love of God.
John 3:16. Most people have heard this verse over and over again, and Praise God, the truth of it never strains or struggles. But more importantly, one needs to read on beyond the single verse;

16“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21“But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

In this episode of Gospel Music Roundup, we are going after your heart; Your salvation comes through Jesus Christ. with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the Love of God fills you. But it’s up to you to accept it, receive it, believe it, and yield to it.
