    Worship Song of the Year: Bethel’s “Reckless Love”

    This year, I would have to say the best worship song in my opinion was “Reckless Love” by Bethel. The song was written by worship leader Cory Asbury, with Ran Jackson and Caleb Culver. The song was released around March 2017 by the Bethel Church via YouTube. The song, led by worship leader Steffany Gretzinger, has over 4 million views and counting. Click here to watch.

    Asbury joined the Bethel Music group in 2015, and has been leading and doing worship on his own, having released two solo albums. He also worked hand in hand with the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. Asbury is releasing his third official album, entitled Reckless Love, in January 2018.

    After the official launch of the iTunes release from Asbury for his hit worship song “Reckless Love,” he released an acoustic live version and Bethel Music published it on their channel—check it out below!

    Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson, a fellow believer and no stranger to Project Inspired, also caught on to the new, powerful and anointed worship song and decided to do a cover of it with a friend on an acoustic guitar. Who knew she sang? Pretty cool!

    Here are some of my favorite lyrics from the song: “Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God… Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the 99… I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still you give yourself away….”

    I also love: There’s no shadow you won’t light up, mountain you won’t climb up, coming after me… there’s no wall you won’t kick down, lie you won’t tear down, coming after me….”

    Wow, so true and powerful! This song is based on the parable of the lost sheep and, according to Asbury off his Facebook post, he explains the meaning of “reckless” in the title and in the lyrics of the song.

    Here is an excerpt from Asbury’s Facebook page on a deeper meaning behind the title and theme of the song:

    “When I use the phrase ‘the reckless love of God,’ I’m not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regard to His own safety, comfort and well-being. His love isn’t crafty or slick. It’s not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it’s quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn’t consider Himself first. His love isn’t selfish or self-serving. He doesn’t wonder what He’ll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.”
