One of the most exhilarating bits of news for a music fan is when a beloved former band member returns for a reunion of sorts. Classic Newsboys fans received a treat Sunday with the announcement that the latest Newsboys single will feature a guest performance by former lead singer Peter Furler. The single is a cover of "The Cross Has The Final Word," originally written and recorded by worship leader and husband of Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes. The Newsboys posted cover art from the new single to Instagram and Facebook on Sunday, with a caption of the song's bridge, "There's nothing stronger, nothing higher, nothing greater, than the Name of Jesus." Included was the hashtag "comingsoon."

"It was a blast singing together with Peter, and we hope it is a message that encourages you.  To the weary believer... the person who is doubting... feeling like you're all washed up... you're not done! God has plans for your life, and He has a purpose for your existence. No matter what is in your past, forgiveness can be found in the cross. You can leap forward in faith and victory," says Michael Tait of the Newsboys.

On his heart for the song, Peter says  "'The Cross Has The Final Word' is all about the power of Jesus and the great work He did for us on the cross. It's truly something Christians place our hope in. That something started on the earth in the beginning when man disobeyed and were separated from God. Doors were opened that brought in powerful things like sickness, disease, hurt, and pain. Science can't defeat those things. Drugs can't defeat them. Alcohol can't defeat them. Buddha can't. The New Age movement can't. Muhammad can't. The only thing that can is something more powerful than all of them... something more powerful than death. The only thing more powerful than death is Jesus Christ and the reconciliation of what He did on the cross."
 


 
"The Cross Has The Final Word" will impact radio June 23rd.
