Still Speaking after 31 Years in Heaven

Share Your Memories of Keith Green



Keith Green FB Share Your Memo
We want to give everyone an opportunity to share their memories of how Jesus used Keith to impact their life.  And gather all the stories in one place for everyone to enjoy. 

Keith sure impacted my life.  After Jesus, he was my biggest influence.  Keith modeled giving everything to Jesus, not wanting celebrity, caring for the poor, taking people off the streets, and reaching into prisons.  We did that from the start together. 

I would love to know what your story is.  How did Keith impact your life?  Were you at a concert?  Was it through the music?  Are you in ministry?  On the mission field? 

How did Keith impact you, and what are you doing now that you think you might not be doing — if not for his influence? 

Please share your story in the comment section below.
 
I’ll start!

I first heard Keith's music when I was on a church trip to Ecuador about 1980, The missionaries son had an album of his and I feel in love with it. Miss Keith and have praise for Melody.....

As a 17 year old, back in 1977 I remember going to several of his concerts, but the one that stands out the most is at Garden Grove Community Church (Hour of Power) and Keith singing and telling everyone to listen to the LOrd, come up front and sit down and really worship the King. I was a baby Christian, but I did it, and it brought me to a whole new level with the Lord, thanks Keith for being a lover of the Lord, and teaching others to be also.

I was born again in October 1980. Not long after that I began going on Lay Witness Missions throughout PA, Maryland and New Jersey. As part of our youth ministry we used a lot of Keith's music to inspire and speak to the youths at these churches. I can't tell you how many hundreds of kids came to the alter and asked the Lord into their lives just as I and many others had before them as we listened to "Make My Life a Prayer." Tears flowed, God's love abounded. I was at summer camp the day Keith and the children went to be with Him. I cried and cried and felt so helpless. As time moved on, I realized that Keith, the kids and his message would live on in his music. Throughout my life I have continued listening to his music. To this day some makes me joyfully cry while some makes me laugh hard (Sheep and the Goats). Keith is sorely missed but him, Josiah and Bethany will NEVER be forgotten!

I become a Christian on 9th June 1981 and only discovered Keith's music in 1983. What touched me the most about his music, and continues to do so even today, is Keith's deep hunger for the Lord and desire to only do that which pleases Him. This had been my desire even long before I actually knew of salvation. So, Keith's music only helped to make me more sure of my own salvation and how much the Lord loves me. I was, rather, disappointed when I learned that he had gone to be with the Lord before I knew about him. My desire was then that I go for school to LDM. I was accepted to attend a one year course but could not then take it up because I had just been enrolled in a technical college in my home country Zambia. I now have two young adults kids and they are all saved. Amazingly, they also fell in love with Keith's music of which I have a healthy collection. Keith still remains a huge inspiration to me and I thank God that He so graciously let us have him those few short years. But I guess He got to miss him so much that He wanted to put him on His Praise Team in Heaven so soon.

As a youngster growing up in South Africa I came across Keith's music in the 80ties. The power of the lyrics and the conviction with which they were sang left a marked impression of my being and my love for Jesus. A couple of times a year I wake up and I just know it has to be a Keith Green day. A day where I know I simply need to be reminded of the holiness and power of God and my response to him. Invariably the first choice on the playlist is "Your love broke through," my ultimate all-time Keith Green favourite. As I listen to these words Im reminded of the man I want to be and the man I am in Christ.

I'd just come back from living in Israel when I discovered Keith Green. Just love the music; such a gifted songwriter. Even now, those songs touch me - he's like a modern day Elijah of the musical industry! My biggest regret is not making it to the Last Days Ministries to do discipleship training with Keith & Melody Green as this has always been on my heart. More than anything, it's Keith's "passion" that resonates for me ... his love for the L-rd.

To me, Keith continues to represent what it means to be a man after God's heart, completely sold out to His purposes and witness in all the earth. His memory and music continue to convict and inspire me to more like Jesus, laying aside my own preoccupations so I may live more fully for Him. I am so grateful that we don't grieve as the world grieve and have the hope of rejoicing with Keith in heaven! Thank you Keith and Melody for your faithful obedience to the Lord's calling on your lives and the impact you have made on mine! <3 <3 <3

Someone from our share group called me that morning to tell me that Keith was killed. I had to check it out myself and after I did, I ran out to my garden, crying and pulling weeds, for the longest time. I heard God speak to my heart, "He must decrease, I must increase." It made me stand still and wonder but I thought God would explain later. That afternoon I was reading my regular scripture reading which was from Ps 116. I read, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." I thought, "this is a new translation, I never heard death described as 'precious.' I looked up the Hebrew and sure enough, precious, valuable, good report. I had already learned that if my thoughts disagree with how God thinks, if I want to have a sound mind, I have to change my mind to think like He does. As I meditated on that scripture, it became more meaningful to me. It's like all of heaven is silenced by a loud "Shhhhh - pay attention. What is happening is precious, very valuable. One of mine is being translated into My presence - it is very costly. It cost the death of my Son." It took my breath away like many other revelations from God as I understood His heart.

Keith's ministry touched my life at a time when God filled me with His Spirit and my relationship with God grew by leaps and bounds. I wrote to Melody back then. My heart was broken to her. And I prayed for her so many times. Keith's music is timeless. My kids like it. I like it! How unusual for it to be trans-generational. He has a unique ministry in that his music ushers you into the presence of God as you see and experience being lost in praise! My mind's eye had him grabbing his kids as he knew he would be in God's presence. I saw him lost in praise as he was translated into God's presence as all of heaven watched attentively with awe!

I have 4 grown kids, 2 of them as pastors, one is in a church plant. All of them know who God is. Keith's music and testimony had a part in that. My kids remember all the praise music that went on in our home.

Melody, you just go girl! You have been an example to so many. Happy to have an opportunity to share this with you after so many years. And as I write this, my heart is in my throat. God bless you! What a reunion we will have!

Keith Green was the vessel Holy Spirit filled to pour on my thirst for Israel and world missions in the early 1980's. Melody Green's full circle moment womens' conference in Seattle last year was the touch point to be reminded that the circle of knowing we are given- who we get to do life with, is precious, and we are all much more connected that we know.
Remembering you, sweet, lovely Melody on this tender anniversary; July 31 st would have been my 21 wedding anniversary (I was widowed in 2009).
Your love makes a difference!

I was fairly new to the Contemporary Christian music scene when Keith was alive. I knew of his music and was sad to hear he died in a plane crash. I didn't know his life story and I had never seen him in concert. A few years ago I was looking for an Easter song for the congregation I was pastoring and found Easter Song on Youtube. I was so touched by his testimony and the beautiful song, that I ordered the special edition of Keith Green, the live experience DVD. I shared it with the congregation on Easter. Since that time, I periodically listen to his testimonies, his life story, and sense the dynamic love for God that emulated from him and the presence of Holy Spirit that was so genuine in his life. It is my desire to become the kind of Christian that Keith described in his testimonies. My adoration is extended to you and your family for the outpoured love you have demonstrated in continuing the mission of sharing the living Christ with others through Keith's music and life in the absence of your beloved husband and children.
