I Don’t Care If Nobody Loves Me

At certain times, there are a few things that I like to go to for encouragement when things that I say or write in truth and love are not received as truth or as in love. One is 1 Peter 4:12-19; another is Nobody Loves Me by Derek Webb. Luke 4:24 is also a great encouragement as is the entire life of Christ as revealed in the Gospels. Being that I could not write a post on the subject as well as Derek Webb composed a song on it, I will step aside and let the better speak:

Well I can always tell a liar, and I always know a thief
Well I know I’m like my family, because brother I’m the chief
Well I’m a dangerous crusader cause I need to tell the truth
So I’m turning over tables in my own living room

But I might nail indictments up on every door in town
Cause its not right or safe to let your conscience down
So I don’t care if

Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me…but You

Cause the truth is never sexy, so it’s not an easy sell
You can dress her like the culture, she’ll shock ’em just as well

And she don’t need an apology for being who she is
And she don’t need your help making enemies
So I don’t care if…

So I’ll do whatever it takes
To fit us into this wedding gown
I’ll use words that rattle your nerves
words like ‘sin’ and ‘faith alone’ now…

Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me
Nobody loves me…but You.

~Nobody Loves Me by Derek Webb

  1. Be encouraged that the reception isn't your responsibility.

    You can't change the heart of a man (or woman). You rock my face off for being honest / bold (I'm kind of assuming things here, but you'll just have to live with it).

    Also of note; man I love Derek Webb, Caedmon's Call, etc.

  2. Haha. Thanks for the encouragement, brother (I'm kind of assuming things here, but you'll just have to live with it). It's seems like well reception is a rarity in history of Israel / the Church. It's hard, though, when you love the people.
