6th Day Made
6th Day Made is not just a band with motivation, but also one on a clear mission. “We view ourselves as an extension of the church, and so our mission is the same – albeit through music,” states guitarist, singer, songwriter Mark Maggard. “We exist to exalt the Savior, evangelize the lost and edify the saints (to build up) God’s people.” The Bible tells us that on the sixth day, God surveyed all He’d created and saw that it was good. Although not on that grand of a scale, the members of Michigan’s 6th Day Made found themselves both enthused and satisfied when it came to choosing the eye-catching moniker for their exciting new rock band. “We recognized that we needed a name that best reflects who we are,” explains Maggard. “We were going through the book of Genesis when coming up with a name and were reading about how the Tower of Babel was being constructed. Chapter 11 tells of man constructing the Tower of Babel. Verse 4 includes “let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach into heaven; and let us make us a name…” Later in verse 7, we see the Lord deconstructing what man had constructed, and in the very next chapter we see the Lord tell Abram “I will make thy name great.” Lastly, in chapter 17 God changed his name.” The Book of Genesis also teaches that God gives His best to those who leave the choice to Him.
