“I have still not found a church to attend here in Denmark”. This was a major concern for Monte Kutin during his stay in Denmark. The rundown statistics of the Christian society in Denmark has about 1.7% of the total population Danes who have believed and confessed the Lordship of Jesus Christ over their lives. To Monte Kutin, It was more than a burden for him to have been missing the corporate anointing and enjoy the graces in fellowshipping with the brethren fulfilling the scripture in Psalm 123:1-3.
One breezy morning, he was on his way to Jelling and had a text from one incoming music producer called Boomer from Ghana who wanted to work with him. He gave him about three beats to work on and as he was fellowshipping and enjoying the beats, one particular beat got to his attention. He sang a song about himself to the beat expressing the joy in the house of the Lord and the experience he had in worshipping God with the brethren when he was in Ghana. He then made his song “Chale Make We Go Church” after meditating on the word of God, he later got more inspired from the scripture Psalms 122:1 KJV, “ I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
For most people, going to church is just a ritual that they go through every Sunday. There are also others who don’t see the need for why we ought to be in church every week. Growing up in an African home can make Church feel ‘boring’. Church was a thing we did as a family, we didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. We sang hymns we didn’t fully understand and spent long hours in church going through the motions. Well, the story was a bit different for artiste Monte Kutin. Growing up in a Christian family, Monte was used to church but things changed when he lived in Denmark for a while.
We asked him about going to church on Sunday and this is what he had to say; “In Ghana, a lot of people know and acknowledge God, but that isn’t the case in other countries like Denmark. Sunday is likened to a hangover day where I used to stay and I just couldn’t understand why”. This stark contrast from what he was used to in Ghana is what led to the hit song Chale make we go Church. Written by Monte Kutin and Kobi Newton of Greenlight, this song is designed to get people to realize the importance of being in church and to encourage people to be in church. The title is taken from the local Ghanaian broken English language called pigeon. Chale Make We Go Church translated to English would mean let’s go to church friend.
Our spirits were birthed from God’s word, hence it’s important for us to consciously feed and speak forth God’s word. If you haven’t yet heard or downloaded Chale Make We Go Church then watch the lyric video here.
Reasons why you need to be in church
As believers, we need to come together to be trained and grow in the knowledge of God’s word. The scripture says in 1Timothy 3:14-15 NLT, “I am writing these things to you now, even though I hope to be with you soon, so that if I am delayed, you will know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God. This is the church of the living God, which is the pillar and foundation of the truth.”
The church is the holy sanctuary of God where we are nurtured and furnished well to become matured and firm in the commands of God. The truth we share protects and preserve us from destruction and negative influences. Also, we get to know God’s plans and purposes for our lives and pick up grace to flourish in all our endeavours. We enjoy the graces, pleasantness and goodness from the fellowshipping in Church. And lastly, we enjoy good living from the blessings of God. Enjoy the song, share with a friend and Chale, make we go Church this and every Sunday.
