What if I were to demand that you love me? Would you? You might say, “Why should I love you?” And you would be right to want reasons for my demand for your love. God has demanded our love (Matthew 22:36–38); it’s the most important commandment of all, according to Jesus. Shouldn’t we ask for reasons to love Him? The Bible contains many answers to the question of why a person should love God. Sometimes though, we don’t have the time or are in the right place to search through the bible for answers. However music is often the simplest of ways to capture messages and emotions. Award winning singer-songwriter, and multi-genre recording artist, Samie Bisaso, whose Gospel-based music blends contemporary stylings of RnB, Soul and Pop, comes to our rescue with the title track of his new album “This Is Why”.
Samie Bisaso has now dropped the official video for the song “This Is Why”, in which he lays down series of reasons of why he loves the Lord, and why you should love the Lord too. And he does so via a heartfelt testimony. Can it really be that the One who made heaven and earth and all that is in them really wants us to come to Him? That’s exactly what the Bible teaches, and that is what Samie testifies in this song, and it should make you love the Lord even more.
Clearly the message that comes across is that to love God is to put Him first. Loving God requires knowing Him, and that knowledge begins with His Word. It may sound glib, but to know Him is to love Him. Samie Bisaso is obviously acquainted with his Savior, as he understands that the number-one commandment is to love God “with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength”.
Understanding and loving the Lord could be likened to man who is separated from his loved one and receives a letter from her. His first action will be to eagerly open the letter and pore over its contents. His love for his beloved will naturally cause him to love her correspondence with him. The same is true with our love for God’s Word. Because we love the Scripter, we love His message to us. We read it avidly and often, we hold it close, and we hide its words in our hearts.
We are meant to love God with our passion, hunger, perception, and thoughts. But we are also to love him with how we talk, and what we do with our hands, how we behave, and how we utilize our talents. Samie Bisaso follows this rule as best he can, and uses his talent and music to show his love for the Lord. Officially released on November 10th 2017, “This Is Why” is the latest in a long series of video-singles that displays Samie’s wholehearted, life-encompassing commitment to God.
