The Theology of Lauren Daigle! “First!”
I think I’m in love. No, not with Lauren Daigle, but with her music! I’m deeply moved by her songs and think anyone who has ears and a brain and a heart ought to be as well. What I want to do in this series of posts is listen to and think about the theology her songs present. Comments welcome!
A.W. Tozer put it this way: “We have been snared in the coils of spurious logic which insists that if we have found Him, we need no more seek Him.” The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
How do we “keep Him” “first”? We bring our hearts to Him before we bring our needs. We purpose to KNOW Him. We LOOK for Him “in every season” (especially in the hard ones). We are vigilant in watching for the things “that come before.” And we TREASURE Him — above all things.
I’ve been greatly helped here by the writings of John Piper. He admonishes us to treasure the Lord above all things, famously stating that “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
