Lexi Elisha just released the video for “I Choose Love,” the first single off her new record Eventually to be released August 27th.
The concept behind the song is simple: love your neighbor as yourself. It’s the golden rule. When Jesus came to inhabit the Earth as a man, he raised the call of love to a new standard. In John 13:34 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
Love doesn’t just happen; it’s a choice and a commitment. Lexi states, “While writing ‘I Choose Love’ I was continually exposed to my own selfishness in my relationships. I don’t always feel love. Sometimes I get frustrated or upset. I frequently find it difficult to know how to love my neighbor as myself. It’s easy to love on my best days. But when the rubber meets the road, love is what I am commanded. I am to love like Christ loved.’
“I Choose Love” is more than a single off her record. Lexi wants what she says in the song to be bold and crystal clear: She is making a daily conscious choice to love and encourages us all to do the same.
