powerLive at Free Chapel With Ricardo Sanchez | Integrity Music

For pastor Jentezen Franklin of Gainesville, Ga.-based Free Chapel church, Power of the Cross is not simply a sophomore worship release; it’s the fulfillment of a dream. “I remember years ago, sitting in my office, jotting down my dreams for the ministry of Free Chapel,” he says. “I dreamed for a music ministry that would draw people into God’s presence to worship Him and be refreshed … for a ministry that would influence the nations. Were they big dreams? Absolutely! Did it seem impossible? At times, yes. But look at what the Lord has done!”

With this live recording, listeners will be drawn into the presence of God, even as Franklin prayed, with songs that focus on salvation and new life—the power of the cross. Israel Houghton and Ricardo Sanchez lead the opener “I Am Forgiven,” declaring that God has forgiven us and has given us another chance. The dancing will continue with “Broken the Chains,” which professes that without the bondage of shame we can live for Him.

“The Power of the Cross” with Houghton, Sanchez, Aaron Lindsey and Danya Caddell focuses on the freedom we have because of Calvary. The chorus is especially moving: “Nothing is missing / Nothing is broken / Now it is finished / His blood has spoken / I am redeemed / I am set free / I am complete / By the power of the cross.” This song will surely build listeners’ faith.

A special treat is Jentezen Franklin on saxophone and vocals on “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power.” This Andraé Crouch classic continues the CD’s focus on what Jesus did for us on the cross. Pastor Franklin closes the track with verbal encouragements and shout-outs that stir the crowd. Another highlight is “Very Same Power,” which declares that the power that raised Jesus from the dead is “alive in me.”

The songs on this CD will encourage listeners to know they are overcomers, to know they are victorious. Power of the Cross offers a collection of songs that reminds us to continually believe in the awesome power of the cross that is available today!
