Trip Lee, the stage name of rising Christian rapper William Lee Barefield III, finds Jesus irresistible even though his art tells him God is against him.
“The fact that God is for me. That is huge for me when I am thinking about fighting my own sins because my art tells me that God is against you. God wants to keep you from something that is pleasureful, something that will bring you pleasure, so you need to disobey God,” said Lee in a video interview posted on the Desiring God website on Sunday.
But Lee, who is mentored by Grammy-nominated Christian rapper Lecrae, says he looks to his favorite Bible passage, Romans 8, and especially verses 31-39, to remind him that he is more than a conqueror in all things through Christ’s love.There was a time when I was in my sins and I was God’s enemy, but now I have been purchased in Christ and God is for me. He is not going to do anything or command anything that is not ultimately for my good and for His glory,” declared Lee passionately.
“It’s incredible and it drives me to Jesus. It drives me to want to follow him. It drives me to love him knowing that the most important thing in me is that I am in Christ and there is nothing that can take that away from me.”
Lee attends Boyce College, the undergraduate school of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – the flagship seminary of the Southern Baptist Convention and where well-known theologian R. Albert Mohler, Jr. is president.
