Casting Crowns - "Start Right Now" (Official Video)



Casting Crowns lead singer Mark Hall said their song “Start Right Here” is a type of commentary on some of the churches he has seen today.  “I feel like instead of building church, now we're shopping for church.  What I'm finding is that our churches are getting more and more comfortable for the fewer that are inside – and less and less appealing to the ones who are outside.”

“The day that [style and comfort] become our goal, to create a look and a feel, instead of knowing that only the power of God will save people – then we’re in trouble.”

Keeping our priorities straight through song, here’s Casting Crowns’ “Start Right Here”…

Starts Right Here Lyrics

We want our coffee in the lobby
We watch our worship on the screen
We got a Rockstar preacher
Who won’t wake us from our dreams
We want our blessings in our pockets
We keep our missions overseas
But for the hurting in our cities
Would we even cross the street?
 
But we want to see the hearts set free and the tyrants kneel
The walls fall down and our land be healed
But church if we want to see a change in the world out there
 
It’s got to start right here
It’s got to start right now
Lord, I’m starting right here
Lord, I’m starting right now
 
I’m like the brother of the prodigal
Who turned his nose and puffed his chest
He didn’t run off like his brother
But his soul was just as dead
What if the church on Sunday
Was still the church on Monday too
What if we came down from our towers
And walked a mile in someone’s shoes
 
‘Cause we want to see the hearts set free and the tyrants kneel
The walls fall down and our land be healed
But church if we want to see a change in the world out there
 
We're the people who are called by His name
If we’ll surrender all our pride and turn from our ways
He will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin
He will heal our land but it starts right here
 
It’s got to start right here
It’s got to start right now
Lord, I’m starting right here
Lord, I’m starting right now
