The Sidewalk Prophets share the story behind this song, “Live Like That,” at http://chicago.shine.fm/node/4863. Dave shares that the people who have influenced his life, (paster, grandparents, etc.) showed the life of Jesus in them. This encouraged him to live a life like that. He references my favorite passage of Hebrew 12:1-2 which says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
What an amazing message and example to follow. Like in the chorus of this song, I want to live like that! Enjoy!
