I began listening to Christian music in the year 2000. My younger brother introduced me to a Christian rock band called Third Day. At the time, he was attending bible college and Third Day was a favorite among his classmates and friends. I had always liked rock music which is why I was thrilled to have found a rock band whose first priority was to worship God.

*

Third Day released their debut album in 1996. The band's major musical influences include: Lynyrd Skynyrd, U2 and the late Rich Mullins. As they began to increase in popularity in the 90's Billboard magazine said that Third Day is “not only one of the best Christian bands of the '90s but one of the best rock bands, period.”

To this day, they rank at the top when it comes to my favorite Christian artists. The band from Georgia, led by Mac Powell, has won four Grammy awards and over 20 Dove Awards for their music. Chances are, they will receive more in the years to come as they don't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. All of their fantastic music has made it hard for me to narrow it down to my ten favorites. But here they are, in no particular order:

Thief

Why this is one of my favorites:

I have thought about the thief on the cross next to Jesus many times. I am in awe that all he had to do was confess to Jesus that he believed Him to be the Messiah. As reassurance of the thief's salvation, Jesus told him that He would see him in Paradise that day.

The thief on the cross did not have to be baptized, he did not have to go through any religious ritual, he did not have to go through a priest or pastor, he simply went to Jesus. I love that it was only by his faith and his verbal confession he was saved!

Some of the lyrics:

Who is this man? This man beside meThey call the King of the JewsThey don't believe that He's the MessiahBut, somehow I know it's true.

And they laugh at Him in mockery,and beat Him till he bleedsThey nail Him to the rugged cross,and raise Him, they raise Him up next to me

Creed

Why this is one of my favorites:

This song is basically the words of the Apostle's Creed set to music. I used to attend a Lutheran church that had a weekly tradition of reciting the Apostle's Creed. It often helped me to think back to the song in order to remember the words.

The words in this Creed are the basis for what Christians believe and why they believe. The song, Creed, was written by the late Rich Mullins. Third Day performs the song in concert and it appears live on their Offerings II CD.

Some of the lyrics:

I believe that He who suffered was crucified, buried and dead.He descended into hell and on the third day He rose again.He ascended into heaven where He sits at God's mighty right hand.I believe that He's returning to judge the quick and the dead of the sons of men.

And I believe what I believe is what makes me what I am.And I did not make it, no it is making meIt is the very truth of God and not the invention of any man.

King of Glory

Why this is one of my favorites:

This song is absolutely beautiful. It starts out with guitar strings playing softly with Mac Powell asking, “Who is this King of Glory that pursues me with His love?” As the song continues, it begins to crescendo and the chorus is sung. It ends with a choir singing along with the band, “He is the king of glory, He's everything to me.” It gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

Some of the lyrics:

Who is this King of Glory with strength and majestyAnd wisdom beyond measure, the gracious King of kingsthe Lord of Earth and Heaven, the Creator of all thingsWho is this King of Glory, He's everything to meThe Lord of Earth and Heaven, the Creator of all thingsHe is the King of glory, He's everything to me

You Are Mine

Why this is one of my favorites

The message of this song is why I love it. I am God's child. I am His and He is mine, made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus. This song brings good, happy feelings and makes me want to tap my feet and get up and dance. It just makes me want to praise Him!

Some of the lyrics:

Whenever I hearOf your saving graceAnd how you gave your lifeIn exchange for mineSometimes I wonder why you even love meAnd why you ever chose to call me childThen I remember, It's by your sacrificeI can say thatI am yours and you are mine

My Hope is You

Why this is one of my favorites:

Beautiful song, wonderful lyrics, amazing message. This song has it all. Another one to make me fall on my knees and worship Him. I often wonder how people make it without God in their lives? How do they make those tough decisions? Who do they turn to when they or their loved one is very sick? I know no matter what trial comes my way, I will always have hope because I know the One who is hope.

Some of the lyrics:

To you, O Lord, I lift my soulIn you, O God, I place my trustDo not let me be put to shameNor let my enemies triumph over meMy hope is youShow me your waysGuide me in TruthIn all my daysMy hope is you

I Need a Miracle

Why this is one of my favorites:

Have you ever needed a miracle in your life? I know I have! There have been times I have needed a miracle in my finances or in my health. Currently, I am praying for a miracle for my daughter, that she would one day get out of her wheelchair and have the ability to walk. The great thing about believing in miracles is that Jesus who is the same yesterday, today and forever used to perform them all the time and is still performing them today. This song reminds me of this reality every time I hear it!

Some of the lyrics:

Well no matter who you are and no matter what you've done There will be a time when you can't make it on your own And in your hour of desperation, know you're not the only one Prayin' Lord above, I need a miracle.

Saved

Why this is one of my favorites:

It may surprise you to know that this song was written by Bob Dylan after a “born again experience” that he had. I'm not sure where is now with his faith but at one time he was really seeking and searching God. This song epitomizes that experience when you first come to know Jesus or when you find Him again. It's a song that celebrates all that Jesus did for us when He died on the cross.

Some of the lyrics:

I was blinded by the devil, born already ruinedStone-cold dead as I stepped out of the wombBy His grace I have been touchedBy His word I have been healedBy His hand I've been deliveredBy His spirit I've been sealedNow I've been saved by the blood of the LambAnd I'm so glad, Yes, I'm so glad

Call My Name

Why it's one of my favorites

God loves me. He always has and He always will. No matter how much I mess up and no matter how much guilt I have, He will never condemn me. Instead, He is there to wrap His loving arms around me no matter how I feel, no matter what I've done. He does not want me to ever doubt His love for me.

Some of the lyrics:

It's been so long since you felt like you were lovedSo what went wrongBut do you know there's a place where you belongHere in my armsCall my name, say it nowI want you to never doubtThe love I have for you is so alive

Your Love Oh Lord

Why it's one of my favorites

One thing I like about Third Day and Christian music in general is that in their songwriting, they are influenced by words in the Bible. This song is taken from Psalm 36 and is a song of worship. It's set to such beautiful music and when I hear it, my eyes well up with tears as I remember God's faithfulness and all that He has done for me.

Some of the lyrics:

Your love, oh LordReaches to the heavensYour faithfulness stretches to the skyYour righteousness is like the mighty mountainsYour justice flows like the ocean's tideI will lift my voiceTo worship You, my KingI will find my strengthIn the shadow of your wings
