Album Notes
Recommended age group: 8+

“Spirit Alive” explores the themes of the New Testament and the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives and in our church. It is the third album in the maxiPraise children’s trilogy of themed music, encouraging commitment to living a life filled with the Spirit, sharing Jesus, and building the body of Christ until He returns.
Unlike the first maxiPraise acoustic albums, the tracks on “Spirit Alive” are fully sequenced, contemporary instrumentals with rich vocal arrangements by teen/young adult singers, appealing to an intergenerational audience. For the younger listeners, “Nothing Better Than This,” “Share Jesus,” “Bubblin’ Up,” and “Build Up the Body” are easy songs to add actions to.

It’s difficult not to feel the joy in the rhythms of “Comforter” and “Jesus Inside” or the solid old-school rap of “Have Faith in God.” Feel it bubble up in the fun medley of “Peace Like a River / Bubblin’ Up” as you add a few actions and clapping for the younger age group.

The title track, “Spirit Alive,” wrestles with seeing self through the eyes of grace, discovering new, real life in the Spirit of freedom. It includes a spoken reading from Romans 6 & 8 (The Message).

The beautiful solo vocal in “Nothing Without Your Love” brings 1 Corinthians 13 alive: ‘love cares, trusts, hopes, love never fails.’

“We Are The Church” is an intergenerational country-style hymn for the whole church to sing. Now sung internationally in different languages, this album has the original maxiPraise version of this unifying favourite.

“How Sweet” is a new lyrical take on the old hymn “How Sweet Are the Tidings” and “One Day Soon” looks forward to the day when all suffering is over and we will see Jesus face to face.

Here is a brief outline of the themes and biblical references for each track:

Praise & Worship: “Sing To the Lord”
Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord all the earth. Psalm 96:1

Choose Life with Jesus: “Nothing Better Than This”
I have come that they might have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

Repent & Commit: “There’s Rejoicing”
There is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10

Sent the Spirit: “Comforter”
When the Father sends the Comforter instead of me… He will teach you much. John 14:26 LB

Filled with His Spirit: “Jesus Inside”
I no longer live but Christ lives in me. Galations 2:20

Led by the Spirit: “I Hear Your Voice”
Your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ Isaiah 30:21

Being a witness: “Share Jesus”
You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses… to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

Take care of His temple: “The Body I’ve Been Given”
Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you… Therefore honour God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:25,26

Spiritual Warfare: “Armour of God”
Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11

Living by the Spirit: “Spirit Alive”
If Christ is in you… your spirit is alive because of righteousness. Romans 8:10

Faith: “Have Faith in God”
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

Fruits of the Spirit: “Peace Like a River / Bubblin’ Up”
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace… Galations 5:22

Unfailing Love: “Nothing Without Your Love”
Love is patient, love is kind… love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4,8

Gifts of the Spirit: “Build Up the Body”
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:4

One in the Spirit: “We Are The Church”
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor remale, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

Jesus is coming soon: “How Sweet”
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3

Hope: “One Day Soon”
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. Revelation 21:4

The Holy Spirit is a unifying force in the church and that is why Spirit Alive is intended to be an intergenerational album. Share it with the children, teens, adults, and grandparents in your church family. We are called to be one in Christ.
