NEVER STOP – URBAN RESCUE
Feel-good, light, joyful, festive.
From Urban Rescue’s full-length album WILD HEART, Never Stop is the perfect song for anyone who finds themselves in a dip or a slump. Does your bes feel like God doesn’t love her anymore? Put earphones on her, play this on your iPod and see a smile etch across her face. The song reminds us of God’s relentless, endless and persistent love. Regardless of the place we find ourselves in—the valleys and the shadows– God will chase us and bring us back to His love, conquering canyons of fears and oceans of tears. He will be there in the lowest places and darkest hours because compared to His love there is “no mountain higher, no river wider”.
Never Stop perfectly depicts the awesome God who is bigger than anything and yet closer to us than anything else in this world. The song describes God as the sunshine on our skin, as the moon that pulls anything close to it, and—much closer—He’s closer than the air we breathe.
Following the simple but meaningful verses, the song’s bridge perfectly depicts the finished work of Christ in which we are victorious over sin as He has paid the price on the cross, making sin lose its foothold over us.
“I see my chains unraveling
All of my shame for victory
I feel my heart run wild and free
There is no place I’d rather be”
The song’s upbeat melody balances this impactful reminder of God’s love for us.
Never Stop helps one sing praise for the daily renewing of our souls, the re-installed communication line we have with God and the hope against all the world’s hopelessness, all made possible through Jesus Christ.
For the wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
