Christian singer Mark Lowry and a pilot did an impromptu performance at an airport, ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee,’ and it’s incredible!
The Pilot And Mark Lowry
Mark Lowry, known for co-writing the song “Mary, Did You Know’ was at the Lynchburg airport when he met a pilot who is a musician as well. The Gaither Vocal Band member just arrived when David Bennett, the pilot, recognized him. Then he asked him to hear him play the public piano. So, Mark sat down with him at the airport lobby and listened to his music. Then he played “Just A Closer Walk With Thee”—a song inspired by the Bible.
Shortly after, both sang together through the Christian hymnal music. The hymn was inspired from 2 Corinthians 5:7, “We walk by faith, not by sight,” and James 4:8, “Come near to God and he will come near to you.” The lyric goes:
“Just a closer walk with Thee
Grant it, Jesus is my plea
Daily walking close to Thee
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.”
Mark and David belted out the worship song together and did a memorable version of the hymn. No wonder this performance has since gone viral.
A Big Name In Christian Music
The Christian singer is a great inspiration to the world. He is known for his simplicity and humility with others. And more importantly, his faith is what makes him encouraging in the eyes of believers.
In a recent Tweet, Mark shared about Jesus’ government. He retweeted, “Jesus has a government. But it’s not America’s or any other nation’s. His kingdom is not *of* the nations, but it is *for* the nations. His government is embodied in the lives of His people who live in the nations, but are not of the nations because we are reborn.”
