Jesus, through his death on the cross, really does offer you a chance to live fully forgiven and fully free!
That is the message of a new song — and a movement — which South African Christian band Frank and I plan to launch on January 20.
Actually, they wrote and recorded the song, Forgiven, during a Holy Spirit-led season in Nashville in the US in 2018, but they have been waiting on the Lord for the right time to release it, says Johan Brits, who together with Frank Furniss, heads up the band.
He says Forgiven was the first song they recorded in Nashville with US singer-songwriter Billy Falcoln who has written about 60 songs for big-name artists including Bon Jovi, Cher and Stevie Nicks.
Johan says the theme of the song is something which he is passionate about sharing, as he personally experienced the power of Jesus’s forgiveness at a time when he despaired of ever breaking free from the hold of pornography.
This year Frank And I went on a nationwide schools’ tour aimed at bringing hope in Jesus to young people. Next year they will visit schools again, as well as churches and radio stations, sharing their new song, together with a message about the power of the cross — “that Jesus took our sins upon Himself and they died on the cross with Him….that who the Son sets free is free indeed…that Jesus’s love is much bigger than any way in which we have failed…and that there really is a second chance for all of us to walk forgiven, without condemation and free from bondages.”
He says that as part of their campaign they will encourage people to share short “forgiven” testimonies on social media.
