Theology From Mumford & Sons

London has once again produced a beam of brilliance in the field of music—now taking form in the relatively new acoustic band titled, “Mumford & Sons.”  It is nice to see the rare occurrence of modern musicians who honor the term ‘artist,’ and offer substance in their art of song. 

In Mumford’s song titled, “Awake My Soul,” these young artists strike at the cord of a basic Christian teaching in the following lyrics: “In these bodies we will live, and in these bodies we will die.  And where you invest your love, you invest your life.” & “You were made to meet your Maker.”

Truly, Scripture teaches that our life in ‘these bodies’ is temporary before proceeding to an eternal experience.  Furthermore, God’s Word affirms that we may trust that the experience will be eternally good if we have dedicated our earthly life to the message of the Gospel, which is love.  God’s ultimate will is that we return to Him, once again becoming citizens of Paradise!

Thank you Mumford & Sons for illuminating these basic, yet eternal truths to generations who appreciate your art.
