JR: That reminds me of something that I wanted to say… Now on days like Father’s Day, where I used to be really bummed out, now, I feel like God has done something really good. It’s a reminder that, “Dude, I am not like my dad was, I’m different and it was through Christ that those changes happened.”
This has also helped me to really understand how much God loves me. I’m worse than anyone I know about beating myself up. There’s nothing you could say to me that’s going to make me feel worse, or going to be worse than what I say to myself sometimes. We have a song called “One Mistake Away” that talks about the burden of guilt, etc. But when I think about the way that I love my kids, I have to ask myself this question: “Am I a better father than God?” If the answer is, “No,” then I have to believe that if I could love and forgive my own children as a mere mortal, how much more would the Father of fathers—the Creator of fathers—how much more would He be able to do that with all of us? My kids are teaching me every day about God…
CCM: Blaise, what’s it like working with your dad? Be honest (remember, he’s already said he forgives you!).
Blaise Rojas: It’s surreal. I’ve been playing with the band for almost three years, now. Of course, I’ve been on the road with them my whole life, and our old drummer Jamie taught me how to play. I had been bugging my dad about playing in the band, and when Jamie went to be a pastor in California, my dad said, “Well, I can’t let you in the band just because you’re my son. You need to earn it.” He made me audition with two other guys, two other drummers, and I got the job.
It’s crazy to be able to just look and see my dad right in front of me and to be able to worship with him. To be a part of experiencing all of the lives changed at concerts, and knowing that God’s using us to be able to do that, that He put us both in this position together, it’s so cool.
