Femi - A true Man of God
The name of the album is, Forever, by Femi Adeduji. It is his sophomore album and, with his classic smooth style, Femi praise of the Lord Jesus is un matched. With a voice as smooth as Sam Cooke, Femi lifts up the mane of Jesus and the listener right along with Him.
The first track, "I Am Yours," is my favorite by far, and here is why.
"Savior of the world.
Redeemer of my soul.
You are the one who makes me whole.
Jesus, Son of God
You found me when I was lost
You are the one who give me hope.
You pursued me. I am yours.
Forever, I am yours
You pursued me I am yours.
Forever, I am yours."
These lines describe my own life. The savior of the world, Jesus Christ the Son of God, came to redeem my soul and make me whole. I was lost and came and found me. HE PURSUED ME! And made me His forever.
You don't understand me. I had been a Christian for more than 20 years, and, few years ago I found myself wishing I was dead and having suicidal thoughts. This love and grace that Femi Adeduji sings about is what saved my life. The songs on Femi's new album are the kinds of songs that can lift a person out the depths of despair.
"Where would I be without your love," is the bridge of this fabulous song. You know that feeling you got when you realized that your wife/husband or special boy or girl had feelings of love for you? Well that's what happens when your realize the God of the universe loves you and pursues you. You can't help but be filled with love for him, and everyone around you.
This first song was a reminder of that feeling of love. In fact the whole album is a back and forth of the realization of God's love for us, and adoration for Him. It is truly a great Praise to our God.
"Glory." I would bet money that they sing this one in Heaven! The chorus: Glory glory to the King!.. the one who was, and is, and is to come. Glory, Glory, to our God! It is simply powerful praise, and I couldn't agree with him more. Maybe I'm biased, because he sings the praises of my favorite person in all the universe.
Mighty God! My God is faithful! comes the praise in this 3rd song. Mighty and awesome is He! God! What can I say about this album. There is not a bad song on it. Femi is a fabulous singer and has a heart and desire to Praise the God of Love.
There are ten tracks on this album. They are equally praise worthy, and powerfully praising. Femi Adeduji, a man of God, and man in love with God. That is what this man's music says about his relationship with the King of kings.
I highly recommend this album. You will not be disappointed..
