Acts 17:28 says, “In him we live and move and have our being.” In relationship with God our lives were meant to drive forward, to go somewhere, to have an effect on everyone with whom we come in contact.
Click your iPod to the song that most stirs your soul. Listen to the movement forward. Crescendo. Decrescendo. The work of an artist who knows how to control his instrument. And because he has spent hours and hours and years and years fine-tuning his skill… we are given a tune that transforms who we are and where we are going.
The kick of a bass drum that can be felt through the floor.
The brush of a bow across the strings of a cello.
The call of a trumpet.
We work to control the instrument of our lives… to create such a forward motion that everyone who listens is drawn toward God by our movement.
