Current Music and the Gospel: SPIRIT Xtra for December 15

In Sunday’s gospel, the followers of John the Baptist want to know if Jesus is the one John has told them about. Jesus praises John for how he has lived and preached. John was true to who he was and able to respond to God’s call in his life. “Burn” is a song about how being true to oneself can ignite the world.

Key Lines: When the light’s turned down, they don’t know what they heard / Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world / We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky / ‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire / Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

Questions: What are you passionate about? How do you “let your light shine?” Who is someone whose life exemplifies the message of Jesus? How does this person influence the way you live your life? How would you describe who Jesus is? How can we be messengers for Jesus?
