#trrts | debts, gifts, + wages

DEBTS TO BE PAID

The Romans Road To Salvation teaches us about the consequences of sin –

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death!

 

Romans 6:23a

For the wages which sin pays is death.

 

Romans 5:12

Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or to escape its power] because all men sinned.

 

Our life is like the aglet of a shoelace. Our death is not even a period, it is just a comma. Therefore, the endless shoelace represents eternity. Life after Death, with or without God! Don’t let the world lie to you with their YOLO slogan and lifestyle. That is reckless behavior. You need to invest today and sew today what you want to benefit from and reap tomorrow.

Crossover, from death to life. What’s the hold up in accepting Christ? Let’s not be stopped dead in our tracks. Let’s continue down the path of righteousness. Let’s go along the Romans Road to Salvation and learn the steps we need to take.

 

FREE GIFTS GIVEN

Romans 5:8 declares, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Jesus’ death paid for the price of our sins. Jesus’ resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus’ death as the payment for our sins.

 

Romans 6:23b
but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Romans 5:8

But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.

 

What is the greatest gift you have ever received?

I bet it was a surprise or a gift you didn’t expect. What makes it even better is when you receive it even though you did nothing to deserve it. It was given just because. Out of the heart of the
giver. These gifts that are unconditional are given with nothing expected in return. Why lessen the value of a gift by expecting to return a gift?

This isn’t a gift exchange.

This is the greatest gift that you will never want to exchange. This is a present. Jesus has blessed us with his presence… and his presents. Not only that, but know that the best gifts are free!

Will you accept the gift?

 

A DAY’S WAGE

Matthew 20:1-16

New Living Translation (NLT)

 

Parable of the Vineyard Workers

20 “For the Kingdom of Heaven is like the landowner who went out early one morning to hire workers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay the normal daily wage[a] and sent them out to work.

“At nine o’clock in the morning he was passing through the marketplace and saw some people standing around doing nothing. So he hired them, telling them he would pay them whatever was right at the end of the day. So they went to work in the vineyard. At noon and again at three o’clock he did the same thing.

“At five o’clock that afternoon he was in town again and saw some more people standing around. He asked them, ‘Why haven’t you been working today?’

“They replied, ‘Because no one hired us.’

“The landowner told them, ‘Then go out and join the others in my vineyard.’

“That evening he told the foreman to call the workers in and pay them, beginning with the last workers first. When those hired at five o’clock were paid, each received a full day’s wage. 10 When those hired first came to get their pay, they assumed they would receive more. But they, too, were paid a day’s wage. 11 When they received their pay, they protested to the owner, 12 ‘Those people worked only one hour, and yet you’ve paid them just as much as you paid us who worked all day in the scorching heat.’

13 “He answered one of them, ‘Friend, I haven’t been unfair! Didn’t you agree to work all day for the usual wage? 14 Take your money and go. I wanted to pay this last worker the same as you. 15 Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money? Should you be jealous because I am kind to others?’

16 “So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last.”

#GoodNews: Selfish kid finds identity in sibling’s death

20131118-150731.jpg

For as long as I can remember, my parents have been divorced and I have had two separate homes.

My mom lived with her parents in Oakland, California and that is where I was raised. It was great to share those days with my grandpa from eating popcorn and drinking rootbeer to playing with trains. I don’t recall anything specific that he ever shared with me, but at 5 years old, I was deeply sadened when he died.

The good thing about having two parents and two homes, was having everything I wanted. I was an only child and I was spoiled. My dad always rewarded me for good grades. He used to pick me up after school and take me to karate classes. The crazy thing was this was like driving from Salem to Portland after school just to come back after karate. But that is how much my dad loved me. That was how much I was spoiled.

I loved my dad’s. I enjoyed my friends there every weekend. Eventually my mom got remarried and had 3 kids with my step-dad. This was rough for me because I was no longer the only child, and no longer was I spoiled. Sharing wasn’t my best attribute. My dad also remarried, but at age 12 I moved in with my dad and began middle school. I had my friends and I made new ones.

Somewhere along the way, I wasn’t getting the best of grades and I wasn’t being the best kid. But high school came and I joined the football team with my friend. I had never played before and so I was a wide-receiver and a corner back. Not that I was starting or anything, but I did what I could.

I was 14 years old when my mom had her 3rd child with my step dad. Because she already had my sister and brother, this new sister wasn’t a huge deal to me. The same year my dad and step mom had a daughter as well. I was again sharing my parents with a sibling, and I was still selfish and learning to share. After having 3 other siblings, this new sibling wasn’t a huge deal to a 14 year old like me, so I never had any pictures taken with her. I never really held her. I was a freshman and everything was new for me again. I was detached.

6 weeks into the football season I finally proved myself worthy to start on defense. Wednesday night the coach let me know I was starting. I was so excited to tell my dad. When I got my home my dad and step mom were crying. They kept saying “we lost her”, but I was confused. I knew they were talking about my sister, but I thought she got kidnapped or something. I finally figured out that she had died of what is known as SIDS or sudden infant death syndrome. Basically, she just stopped breathing.

I was so distraught and depressed. For one, I was being selfish. For two, I never took the time out to spend time with my sister. This is what really got me depressed. At this point in my life I got obsessed with death and questioned why God would allow such a thing to happen. It didn’t make sense to me. My dad and step mom cursed God for taking their baby.

All I could do is ask why and look into the Bible to see if there were any answers. My obsession with scriptures like “an eye for an eye” came from my interest in some tattoos on my favorite rapper. But that is another story.

My step mom ended up giving me this bible that changed my life. There was so much good stuff in here and great poetry – which I really appreciated. Throughout my search for answers and facing my depression I just couldn’t do it on my own. I was desparate for love and attention – something I missed as an only child. But girls at school didn’t give me the time of day. Nothing ever worked.

So one day, my friend invited me to a youth group much like this thing tonight. He told me there would be free grub and maybe some cute girls. Open-mindedly I accepted his offer and came to a church for a youth night.

I do not remember the sermon given or anything really except for the fact that Jesus was tugging at my heart. I knew I was lost and confused in my life. I had been taking the wrong directions. Jesus was my answer. Jesus was my guide and my hero. I took the preacher’s advice and called on the name of Jesus. I asked him to be in my heart and take over my thoughts. Jesus right then rescued me from hurting myself and falling deeper into depression.

My thoughts and feelings on death changed. I looked at girls differently. I wanted to help others. I wanted to help people find answers. I felt Jesus lead me to a better way and a better path. My life took a 180.

The hardest thing was that even though all this occured inside of me, the outside didn’t seem different to anyone. I didn’t have a church to go to every week. I didn’t have great friends around me encouraging me to deepen my relationship with Jesus. I had to do it all on my own.

By God’s grace I was able to express myself and share my talent for poetry through music. I began writing raps and began sharing stories about positive things. That is how I really got into music. I wanted to share my new life and my new love with everything willing to listen.

God has done so much for me and through me since he chose me at age 14. I was 16 when I met Jesus. But the whole thing was lined up for something I didn’t see or understand at the time.

Now, I am married to a wonderful women that believes in God like I do. We adopted her nephew right after getting married. And we just recently had a child of our own as well. No longer am I lonely or depressed. I am definitely fulfilled by God’s love and he has blessed me with a family. Now my music means much more than it did 7 years ago.

This new found love has been the greatest thing to ever happen to me. And to think that a child with divorced parents, and a child with a sibling that died all of a sudden, a child that was lost and depressed and shy… to think… this child has grown into a family man that God intended on growing up. And look at me now. All because I accepted the gift of Jesus.

Traveling down The Romans Road To Salvation

trrts

Delivering Good News with his fellow AnchorMEN, Chris Treborn is back with the same mission, some new material, and a new target market.

His last solo effort was entitled ‘DemoGraphFix‘ – a project for tweens which was designed to be “Infiltrating Peer Pressure with Counter Culture”.  The project was inspired by his past few years performing for 10-14 year olds, realizing he couldn’t deliver the same message to them as he would 15-20 year olds. 

This time around, the Soul Anchor team is targeting a younger audience (4-14 year olds) with the new #AnchorFAM project entitled ‘The Romans Road To Salvation‘.  Perhaps you have heard of this Romans Road before.  The Romans Road is an easy tool using the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans about the wages of sin, and the gift of eternal life.   Using key verses in Romans, one can evangelize and direct one to Salvation.

The goal with this project is to reach a younger crowd with truth conveying messages and real life understandings.  By directing the focus on family first, we can reach out to the other families in the community and beyond.  As a part of AnchorMEN (Real CHRISTIANS living as real HUSBANDS being real PARENTS staying REAL! Because they always Man UP!), Chris Treborn is learning and growing as a husband and father and leader of his family which he calls Team Treborn.

Along the road, Chris is composing his own instrumentals and writing Biblical lyrics that meld together to create a beautiful reality of our nature and our spirituality at stake.  The music will grab kids’ attentions, and with his lyrics, he will bring to life the truth and reality we will all face.  He also plans to present illustrations that will better explain the (narrow) path down the Romans Road to Salvation.

Stay on the look out for New Music, as well as some spoken word, and various other social media resources presenting the Gospel to the youngest generations.

Depression & Homosexuality is a Choice (Mentally)

#Depression is mentally a choice!
#Pills can’t save you or fix the root of your problem!
#RIPChrisKelly #KrisKross #BrothersKeeper

Gay Brains Chemically Changed by #Homosexuality Acts according to Studies @ UC Berkeley

Read about Cain’s experience with depression in Genesis 4
& know this;
For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative. For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks). So [men] are without excuse [altogether without any defense or justification], Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]. And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it). For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one, And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another–men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution. And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32 AMP)

Devo: Excited About God #AnchorFAM #ParentingByDesign

Are you excited about God? Do you talk about the amazing things He has done in your life in the morning, over dinner, and when your kids go to bed? That’s the attitude the early believers had, and it was the impetus for spreading the Word in the earliest days.

Kids are attracted to great stories, and they want to be a part of something dynamic that stirs their blood. We do our kids a big favor when we make being a follower of Jesus something that is exciting and rewarding, rather than a tedious effort to follow a bunch of rules. Recognize God’s movement in your life and tell your kids about it. Make Christianity exhilarating.

When the God of heaven and earth touches your life, it is exciting! Share those stories with your kids.

We cannot keep quiet about what we have seen and heard.

Acts 4:20

Devo: Reborn in Christ #ChrisTreborn #RightFromTheHeart

There is a longing within everyone to be a part of a loving family that lasts. In a world of fractured marriages and dysfunctional families, that longing becomes greater. No matter what type of family we’re from, God gives all of us a chance to be part of the only family that lasts. We had no choice on our earthly family but we do have a choice on entering God’s family through faith.

Jesus calls this spiritual birth being “born again.” We all have a physical birthday, but not all of us have a spiritual birthday, which comes when we accept God’s invitation to trust in Christ as Lord and Savior. With no spiritual birth, we die twice–physically and spiritually. But, with a spiritual birth, we die just once (physically), for our spirit lives forever.

Born once, we die twice. Born twice, we die once.

If we’re born twice, we’re saved from spiritual death and we’re in the family of God forever.

Jesus answered him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3 ESV)

Lyrics: #WeHoldItDown by @ChrisTreborn

• AnchorMEN Lyrics by Chris Treborn •

*LIKE A DREAM*

Like a dream so many walking like zombies
Heads to the ground! Is depression what you call these
People in the streets or the walking dead
Same as it ever was like them talking heads

So many say they’re living the dream
Reality is different than what it all seems
Try not to wake up or else: face reality
Go live in the matrix. Be a casualty.

Dreams are sweet I can’t disagree
But I’ll sleep when I rest for eternity
Everybody is looking for something
For me it’s all Jesus or all nothing

As for me I’m living in euphoria
A trinitarian must be boring huh?
I’m an anchorman sailing with my anchormen
Christ had to anchor me in! (yeaaah) A-MEN!

Dream on!

*THROW YA A’S UP*

I used to be Mr. G then I said no thank ya
Used to walk the streets in Oakland – IM NOT GANGSTA
I was Oakland raise up no way I could be racist
Even if you had two tongues you wouldn’t know what taste is
speaking of Oakland lets throw ya A’s up
anchormen represent oh yeah that’s us
Now we saved G’s no longer wannabees
You can call us unashamed 116 obviously
2pac was my mentor but the life of a thug
Is not the life to live – there’s no love
Only one life to live so live and let live
Gotta give to get. No lets give to give
Nothing more to say yet everyday we pray
For a better day mama said there’d be a day
Like this and this is it
This is for our kids kids & that’s not it we anchormen

*LAYING DOWN YOUR LIFE*

Throw my hands high
Up to the sky
You know why
We ride till worlds collide

OKC you wonder how
We fathom a thunder sound
Till we lie down under ground
We are found heaven bound

Love is a train and I’m down on the tracks
Even with blood stains we bleed out the facts
If I lose my life and take up my cross
I will choose righteous not be lost

A life lived right with light in sight
Be day in night we say we fight

We defend the gospel plus we share it right
Be an example lay down your life
Throw it up with hands up high
Now take it up with hands held high

*IM GOOD*

Yeah I’m good been good since before I left the hood
I mean the town I was down but I left for something good
When I say good I mean very good like great
Make no mistake it’s by his grace I am saved
I’m good been good since before I was in the womb
God told mama make room for a child consumed
With the holy spirit oh yes we fill it
Never conceal it. Unashamed and we deal it
Like a fresh hand of cards more than the stars
Jeremiah told Isaiah to predict the many bars
Spittin from prison or this so called earth
Yet I’ve been good since before my birth
Ya already heard. That’s my word
And heed the gospel you know God is possible
I mean able to turn tables just like that – so good
3 days later watch us bounce back like that – I’m good

* THE CHALLENGE*

conference is about taking the calling of being Christian serious. We are focusing on three things over the course of three verses.
1. The Word
2. Prayer
3. Community

AT the end of each verse we have a specific challenge for each student to take part in. They include:

1. Carry there Bible where ever you go
for 30 days. Even If you go to the store,
school, shopping, dinner…wherever they go
carry your bible like a football That’s the goal
Hit the road and play your role
Don’t ever let go. If we fail to stumble
Then we cannot fumble
Hold on and be strong. Allow the word in you grow
and reap what you sow. Here we go.

They call it the word. Boy haven’t you heard
It’s the good word the good news the gospel
I know with God. All things are possible
He is able to to turn the table on everything
So take your sword that’s the good book and sing
Praises to the LORD for sharing His story
for his glory alone. You’re apart giving glory
This weapon and your brain can defeat enemies
We’re at spiritual war G!

This is the challenge. I offer up to you
What you make of it. Is all up to you
Do what you do. But who will you pursue
The only thing that’s true. Who will you pursue.
For you I challenge this
I know You can handle it.
Here’s the challenge kid
With him you can handle it.

2. You will be challenged to pray
with a different person at work or school each day
I know sometimes when it comes to prayer
People freak out and they get a little weird
Have no fear. Because the spirit is here
There you can have faith to make it all clear
When you cross this bridge let The Holy Spirit steer
That’s when you can hear the voice of God crystal clear

Some of your peers. Yeah they might stare
But you offer them a ladder when they get up on a chair
Most people sit there as Christians we climb
Ain’t no mountain high enough for the love we find
Not only that but we share this love too
If they can only see why pray is for truth
God open up their eyes open up their minds
Open up their hearts allow the prayers inside
Before our demise we can never despise
We belong to God. So let’s pray till the son rise

3. Find an accountability partner and get involved
and serve at your local church. No prob.
If you surround yourself with godly men
You can be a godly man Just like anchormen
With a servant’s heart you will grow closer
To your savior and his disciples. Not a poser
Jesus is the poster child of a child of God
Be more like him. Serve your community it’s our job
It’s our calling too. Let’s go do what Christians do
Because if we are sanctified. Then we remain true.
So I pray you can do. All we are asking of you
Get in the word. Stay in prayer & your community too

Let’s keep this common unity. Between you and me

We can live this life beautifully. Love each other truly
That’s da truth. Because the truths on duty

*FOR YOU*

Struggling daily every day I’m struggling
Before I got married I was barely juggling
I’d rather be hustling sellin to customers and
Making what I make getting what I get then
I met your mom and my perspective flipped
This woman is perfect she can raise my kid
But it took pursuit of more than happiness
God says its holiness so I’m a happy mess
So happy for the challenge and the rewards too
Cuz I knew one day God would bless me with you
And I don’t even know you yet. But I can bet
You will be as sassy as your mom and dad
Hopefully as beautiful as a person as well
This is the story I tell. I pray I won’t fail.
One day I will play it when you can hear
You will see clear grinning ear to ear!

That I was made to. Raise you.
More than just praise you
I won’t forsake you I’m thankful
You were made from me too
So I live my life for you
I will die for you!

We talk about you a lot as we make a plan
To be great parents a loving mom and dad
We’ll be so glad when we finally meet you
can’t wait to greet you teach you & preach fruit
Will we be prepared enough when the time comes
Will you be our daughter will you be our son
Lord knows. So for now we just pray
To do our best to make ends meet each day
No need to worry you will be blessed
You’ll be the answer. The reward from the test
I’m looking forward to holding you to my chest
Theres a safe place for your head to rest
I will do my best. Your mom knows I’ll try
Hopefully I’lll smile, even when I cry
I wont be sad. I’ll be filled with joy
One day-down the road. We’ll all enjoy

That I was made to. Raise you.
More than just praise you
I won’t forsake you I’m thankful
You were made from me too
So I live my life for you
I will die for you!

#SoS Blog ~ Valentine’s Story

Oh, Valentine’s Day. How bitterly that rolls off the tongue. I guess it only takes one person to ruin your whole lovey-day-experience. Mine was ruined in 2005.

I was dating a girl from Stanford in 2003 and she was pretty cool. I wrote a majority of my album ‘Landscape of time’ while visiting her. She inspired me to learn more. She inspired me to be a better writer and artist. But it got to a point where she was hindering me from hanging with my friends, going to church, & performing at shows.

We had a pretty decent give and take relationship. Whenever holidays or birthdays came, we got something for the other. And sometimes we would try to one-up the other by getting a gift that was bigger or better than the other’s gift. One time, she bought a cd deck for my car and replaced the two front speakers as well. Of course, I bought her almost every season of Friends. So it wasn’t like I didn’t give her gifts.

I say this to tell you about Valentine’s Day 2005. I bought her another season of her favorite tv show and I got her chocolates and a nice card. I even bought a gift card for her favorite clothing store. I was set. I drove about 80 miles to visit her at Stanford for Valentine’s Day. When we exchanged gifts she opened hers first and kind of threw a fit. She handed me a card and some candy. I’m looking for more. As she saw me look she said “yeah, I got you something else. Speakers for the rear of your car. But, I’m not going to give them to you. I don’t think you deserve them. They cost a lot of money and you only got me a DVD set. So, I’m going to keep them.” I was so confused and distraught. Where did I go wrong. Was my gift really lacking? I guess she wanted more out me. More gifts. Or at least more expensive gifts.

We had a nice heated discussion and I basically drove back home as a single man. She had ended the relationship on V-Day. Wow. I was surprised. I was upset. I was disappointed.

I was… relieved.

I might be the underdog, but I always bounce back. I might fall down but I always get up and return to pursue love again. Unfortunately, this earth has fleeting beauty and a lack of true love. Only God can show true love. Only God can give love that is unconditional. It is best that we as finite beings look up to Him and try to replicate his ways and give His kind of love. That is our success story. Our testimony is in Him! I would not have found my wife. The woman God created for me. To balance me out. If it weren’t for my mistakes, my failures, my trying, my being number 2. Being the underdog. Sitting on sidelines. God has blessed me through my trial and tribulations and after pursuit and dedication I have surpassed my pride, my ambition, my swagger. I have found reconciliation through realization and humility. I am humble now.

Thank you God for testing me. Thank you God for blessing me. Look where we are now. We are becoming AnchorMEN. We have more than a hope, we have a truth, a design, a purpose. Let’s continue what Jesus has started.

We all need an S.O.S.
We can’t continue to be Sitting On Sidelines.
If we’re playing to win, then let’s Win The Day!

We all have a story about being number 2. What’s yours?

The underdog anthem from Chris Treborn & Marcos is officially available online now! Get the single at your favorite digital mp3 outlets for $.99.

This anthem was created for all the athletes that got next. It is dedicated to all the runner-ups. Put Me In Coach goes out to all the youth, not just in Salem, but for everyone across the nation that is young and unashamed.

Don’t let them make fun of you, just because you’re young. Set the example and do it with style. From what you say, to what you do. By your love and by your faith as you stay pure and true.

Even if you’re not currently playing the field, it’s better to be sitting on sidelines than standing in the bleachers simply spectating. Remember, you got next!

Chris Treborn returns to create new music that will motivate the underdogs and inspire everyone that is next in line. His new music is perfect for individual anthems and team mantras. The moment, you own it. So win the day!

ABOUT:

Chris Treborn, Marcos Esquivel, & Evan Beranek team up to make an underdog anthem.

“Put Me In Coach” featuring Marcos is the lead single from the upcoming Chris Treborn album ‘Sitting On Sidelines’. It is a collaboration album between producer Evan Beranek and emcee Christian Treborn. After Christian was spitting rhymes at Young Life Club, kids noticed how well the two sounded together. ‘S.O.S.’ is dedicated to all the athletes, especially all the second string players, and the practice squad. It contains dance, hip-hop, and techno tunes to get your adrenaline pumping and your thoughts provoking. This album is for anyone that never got their chance to shine and give em what they got.

Most of us have experienced ‘Sitting On Sidelines’ at one point in our lives. It’s all about being ready to play. Even if you’re not out there – starting, you got next. So be prepared for the game. Plus it’s better to be ‘Sitting On Sidelines’ than to be watching from the stands. Be a participator, not a spectator. ‘Sitting On Sidelines’ is not just about sports and athletics either, it’s about relationships too! So whatever the situation may be, remember to be prepared, because the opportunity will be yours! Carpe Diem – WTD!

P.S.

Here are the lyrics:

You can say; “We’re destined for greatness!”
You can say; “You were made for this!”
Well, I was!
So…Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!I’ve been practicing so hard just to make it
If I had a chance you know how far I’d take it
Trust me I’m a great kid, soon I’ll be praised
Thanking my parents for the child they raised
Not boasting or bragging, I’m chosen I’m handling
I’m hot-roasted and handsome, this energy I’m channeling
If only, I could get it out, put it on the field
From a play to a set, from a tackle to a steal
(yeah) I gotcha, I’ll put the ‘D’ in defense
I am D man, so stop playing on the fence
This game is for real, so you got to get it right
Put me in coach, ‘cause I’m down for life
Even if I fall, even if I stumble
I will not whine, and I will not grumble
I will get back up and give another 1-10
‘Cause to give up is just another dumb sin …so…

PUT ME IN COACH, I’M READY FOR MY CHANCE
I’VE PREPARED ALL SEASON, IT’S TIME TO ADVANCE
PUT ME IN COACH, YOU WON’T REGRET IT
GAMBLE WITH ME, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU BET IT

YOU CAN PUT ME IN, YOU CAN PUT ME IN COACH
YOU CAN PUT ME IN, PUT ME IN ONCE AGAIN
PUT ME IN COACH, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID
PUT ME IN COACH, I’M NOT JUST A KID

So…
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

[I won’t let em make fun, just cuz I’m young
I’ll be an example and I’ll set it with style
By what I say, by what I do
By my love and faith, staying pure and true]

This is how I do, this is how it is
Giving a shout out to all the other kids
That be dealing with the biz, from a sizzle to a fizz
We will stand strong, we will place my bid
Use the gift given, thanks for the support
To every one who put their faith in any sort
We will not let you down, we’ll just be around
If not in the city, then we got to rep the town
This is for our school, even the alumni
We got to prove ourselves, no longer a dumb guy
Got to be so fly, if you let us spread our wings
Like the voice of an angel, listen as he sings

YOU CAN PUT ME IN, YOU CAN PUT ME IN COACH
YOU CAN PUT ME IN, PUT ME IN ONCE AGAIN
PUT ME IN COACH, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID
PUT ME IN COACH, I’M NOT JUST A KID

So…
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

YOU CAN PUT ME IN, YOU CAN PUT ME IN COACH
YOU CAN PUT ME IN, PUT ME IN ONCE AGAIN
PUT ME IN COACH, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID
PUT ME IN COACH, I’M NOT JUST A KID

So…
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put Me In Coach! Put Me In Coach!
Put. Me. In!

Chris Treborn’s goal with Soul Anchor Music

 


Chris Treborn has is a Christian Hip-Hop artist that loves sharing the stage and the limelight, especially with his fellow brother and sister artists. He has shared the stage with some big names in Christian Hip-Hop like GRITS, CookBook of LA Symphony, and Braille Brizzy himself. When he opened up for GRITS in 2010, he shared half of his 30 minutes of stage time with Myra Hart. Christian admits “I love her voice, even though people compare her to Adele, she has something uniquely different about her.” Perhaps it is her soulful rhythm and blues style with a punch of pop that makes her stand out. Or maybe it is her vocal range – which puts her above and beyond the capabilities comparable to Adele and P!NK.
