Casting Crowns: Nobody

Casting Crowns: Nobody


This is one of those songs that’s so easy to sing along to without really understanding the words. How many of us actually are content being nobodies? How many of us can say if the world forgets our names after we die, we’re cool with it? I know I can’t.

As fallen people, we are selfish. We live so others notice us. We want to be remembered. Our lives are all about us.

But this song reminds us we are to live so the world can see Jesus in us. There’s nothing in us that’s worth admiring, except for the work Christ has done. We were saved by grace alone.

God choose the nobodies of this world to do mighty works for Him. “For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.” 1 Corinthians 1:16-29

John the Baptist said, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30)

We must stop trying to be “somebodies” and focus on showing the world Somebody. Somebody so much greater than we could ever be. That Somebody is Jesus.
