“Hall of Fame” by the Script

Brian Burchik —  February 6, 2013

Since music’s biggest awards night, The Grammys, is on this Sunday night, I thought we’d look to a song that inspires cultural engagement in the world. The song is “Hall of Fame” by the Script, featuring Will.i.am.  I’m sure many of you have heard it, but if not, I’d recommend watching the video below.

My favorite part of the song is the rap…

Be believers
Be leaders
Be astronauts
Be champions
Be truth seekers

Be students
Be teachers
Be politicians
Be preachers

The underlying assumption is that different people are called and gifted to do different things in their lives. Whether an astronaut, a politician, or a preacher, God invites people on a lifelong journey to live out the unique purpose He’s made them to do.

Here at #LiveFully, we believe that the redemption of Jesus impacts every channel of cultural life. We choose to define “cultural life” by the following seven channels:

Religion, Family, Government, Education, Business, Media, Arts & Entertainment

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of professions, and if you or someone you know works in an area that doesn’t nicely fit into one of these areas that doesn’t mean it isn’t valid.

They are seven general building blocks of culture that we create. We believe that followers of Jesus are called to shine for God in the full spectrum of professions and vocations.

I want to leave you with three questions that are important to consider in discerning your God-given calling in the world. They are pulled directly from an excellent article written by Dr. Tim Keller that you can download here.

1. What people needs do I vibrate to?

2. What am I good at doing?

3. What do the leaders/my friends believe is the most strategic kingdom need?

Take some time to pray and reflect on these questions, jotting down your thoughts. We must not be too busy or ambitious to meaningfully consider the calling of God for our lives. #LiveFully

“We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do“ (Eph. 2:10).
