ROB FRAZIER - HEARTLAND
A Few Thoughts: This album is very different from the one I set out to make a few years ago. Then I would have told you that there was a "great overemphasis in the body of Christ on personal holiness and neglect of actually getting out there and doing the works of the Kingdom of God", or something like that. While I still believe that we in the Western church are an extremely self-centered lot in terms of our faith, I've come to see that before we can hope to effectively wage spiritual warfare we must be prepared in the realm of the inner man - "The Heartland". That is where God does His greatest work, the human heart. Changing our spiritual condition from self-centered to God- and others-centered is a hard task and only He can do it. Of course, part of the learning is in the doing and that is why we are urged to be "hearers and doers of the Word". But too ofen that scripture is used to emphasize "doing" at the expense of "hearing" - we are to be concerned with both of them. God speaks to us through His Word and in the deep recesses of the heart where He is constantly working and writing His law of love and obedience. That's what I'm trying to say when I sing of the "Still Small Voice", not an original phrase, but an original idea for me if I will take it utterly seriously. I now believe that I must if I want to change my world for the gospel. So, in a way, this album starts at "The Heartland" and ends with your answer to the question "What Can One Person Do?" I hope the rest of the songs help to fill the space in between.
