Rise by Trip Lee
As a young Christian in my mid twenties, I feel as this book is speaking to my demographic. I have barely heard any music by Trip Lee, however I was interested to find out the perspective of a hip hop rapper who is also a pastor. I discovered that I connected a lot with what he had to say. He splits the book up into three sections: “getting up, growing up, and pointing up.”
Trip Lee asks several questions that hit you in the heart, for example…”If you have been given new life, why would you wait to start walking in it?” This is a great reminder that God calls us to walk with Him as we are not as we want to be. Another great question he asks is “are you willing to give anything up so that others can gain something?” This question speaks to your mindset and your perspective, that we are called to serve.
He talks about procrastination, lust, being a young father, maturing as a Christian…and several other topics that hit home with me. His book is a call to RISE to the potential that God has spoken over us through His Word.
