Homegrown Worship has just released their brand new song "Treasure." The song speaks about treasuring Jesus above and beyond anything and anyone in this world.
Songwriter Andy Baker explains: "It is challenging to maintain a Godly perspective on finance in a world obsessed with money. We make judgments about people depending upon their economic status and easily fall into the trap of believing that money provides us with safety and security in place of God.
Treasure is a song that explores where I have fallen into this trap. It mark the spot of coming back to God and realising that He is the treasure that I seek. A life pursuing God is one of adventure, but the love of money leads to evil, ruin, and wreckage.
Time is very precious to me. There are many pressures on my time with work and family commitments but I have come to the conclusion that I can't follow Jesus without giving Him that which is precious to me. My time and money must be shared with Him in order that I might know Him more. His presence is more precious than silver, gold, and status."
Homegrown Worship exists to help churches to grow their own worship songs. Having seen incredible fruit from local churches producing their own songs, they are eager to see fresh expressions of worship spring up in a wide range of styles, locations and languages. Each and every week, they release brand new worship songs via download and streaming sites. There will be chords and words available as well as a blog unpacking the story and inspiration behind the songs... plenty to feast upon!
As they share songs with church communities around the globe, theywill be inviting people to share their songs with us as they look to record the cream of the crop in their Homegrown sessions. This will build relationships that enable them to establish music production communities around the world.
