    I’m Loving This: Beckah Shae’s New Song, “Incorruptible”

    Many of you know Beckah Shae from her song “Here In This Moment,” her collaboration with Montell Jordan in “Shake Heaven,” or maybe you’ve even seen her video for “#putYourLoveGlassesOn.” Shae has made an impact inthe Christian music industry with her albums “Destiny,” “Life,”  “Scripture Snack Volumes” and others. Her latest project is inspired not only by the race of life, but also by our spiritual race for the incorruptible crown.

     Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.  And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an INCORRUPTIBLE. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27 KJV).

    Listen to Shae’s new techno pop single, “Incorruptible,” right here:

    Shae has a blog on her official website where you can learn more about her life, ministry, the meaning behind her songs and more. She recently posted about the meaning behind “Incorruptible.” She explains what it really means to win the prize, the everlasting value of chasing after the things of Christ.

    The goal of a Christian should be the same, training hard not just to avoid sin but to excel in righteousness. We must know our purpose. And in order to excel we must be willing to be taught, corrected and super challenged, in order to be transformed into a Winner.

    But a Winner of what? Applause? Awards? Honor? Power?

    The crown is the symbol of victory or award of the highest honor or rank. It is also the symbol of royalty and authority. Paul states that all the athlete wins (is) a corruptible prize. It will not last forever. The crown won by the victor in the ancient Olympian games were made of wild olive, that began to wither as soon as they were separated from the trees. Much like the crowns of the past, the crowns of today fade away just the same. Only today they are  made of fame, Popularity, Money, and Power. But the prize that we compete for is not one that will wither or fade away, it is everlasting, it is Incorruptible, the Incorruptible Crown.

    Shae uses Lady Gaga to explain the difference between a corruptible and incorruptible crown. It appears that Gaga’s “winning” in the race of life to the world, but sadly, she has a perishable crown that won’t last unless she runs to God.

    As a comparison, Shae talks about Corrie Ten Boom and how she ran a race for Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior with the everlasting crown. Boom and her family helped house Jews during the horrific events of the Holocaust, and eventually, her family was punished and killed. She escaped, miraculously, and wrote many famous books, such as The Hiding Place, that have impacted thousands of people’s lives. Boom lived a life for Christ and made an impact for the Kingdom of God that should always be remembered.

    Corrie was knighted by the Queen of Holland. In 1968, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem (Yad Vashem) asked Corrie to plant a tree in the Garden of Righteousness, in honor of the many Jewish lives her family saved.  Corrie’s tree stands there today. In the early 1970’s Corrie’s book THE HIDING PLACE became a best seller and World Wide Pictures released the major motion picture “The Hiding Place.” Corrie went on to write many other inspiring books and make several evangelical videos (Corrie Ten Boom Website).

    My question for you is: What race are you running? Do you aim for a worldly crown? Or a crown that is from your heavenly Father, that will last forever? What do you think of Shae’s message? Do you like her new single?
