"STAND is a call to stand up for what you believe in," says the award-winning singer/songwriter. "It's a call to stand in awe of the One who gave all and to stand outside of the walls of the church rubbing shoulders with the lost. Together, we stand as followers of Jesus sharing a powerful opportunity: To live as a child of God. "We must live as though we believe we are loved," he says.

Smith releases STAND inspired by experiences culled during extensive international touring last year, as well as lessons at home, including his work as co-pastor of New River Fellowship, a Nashville-area church he helped establish.

"Scripture tells us that as children of God we inherit great things - love, hope, peace - all by God's grace. Long ago people would have said we get to eat at the King's table all the days of our lives. Today, we'd say we are given the power to live with abundant hope.

"But the problem I've seen," Smith continues, "is that the biggest enemy we have as followers of God is that we just don't believe who we are. And I've been right there, too."

"So I'm taking a stand - and I hope others will - to really live what I believe and embrace who I am in Jesus Christ. And then I believe we are called to just get with it. We are called to share our joy by serving the lost. The poor. The sick. The brokenhearted. The least of these. In Christ, we are given the courage and strength to change the world."

Produced by Matt Bronleewe, STAND rallies believers to their feet. While STAND inspires listeners toward a love-centred purpose, the record crescendos by hitting a worshipful attitude along side its central message. The move stands for Smith's belief that in worship believers gain strength for accomplishing God's work, as exemplified in "Be Lifted High" and "Oh Lord You're Beautiful," made popular by the late singer/songwriter Keith Green. In kind, the ballad "Grace" is psalm-like in tone and uplifting in spirit. Written by Martin Smith (Delirious), the song returns thanks to God for blessing us with his empowering spirit in spite of our foolish and fickle ways.

The album draws toward its finale by uniting mission and worship in the simple chorus of the title track, while "Come See" extends an invitation to know grace. "God's arms are open, ready to take you just as you are," Smith says, summarizing the call.

He's done it again.
5 stars By Mark Oosterhoff, Jul 26 2008
Another fantastic CD by Michael W Smith, it contains the track he wrote for his daughter about growing up and leaving home; How To Say Goodbye.  It's a stark reminder of how quickly our children will grow up but also the brevity of life itself.
My favourite tracks are 7, 8, and 9, but the most catchy is track 8 - The Stand.  It's guaranteed to have even a car full of the most conservative Anglicans raising their arms and singing, while also providing the opportunity to reflect on the enormity of the Father's ultimate gift and what it means to accept and be surrendered.
It had occured to me while listening to this song (about 30 times), that no price can be paid for a gift, and a gift cannot be earned.  I had also contemplated that surrender involves action - surrendered Christians should act substantially differently.
The CD is good enough to buy 2.  Keep one and give one away, or keep them both because you're likely to wear out the first one!
