Free Live Music
I want to begin today’s post with a picture. I’ll be back with you in just a moment.
I saw this sign as I was running with my daughter on Friday. At first I chuckled about how cheap the sign looked. As I continued past it, though, I couldn’t get this sign out of my mind. Slowly, I began to see the genius of it. Then I thought about it in terms of my faith in Christ and realized that it was a great picture of what Christ has done with me.
FREE!!! The gift of life that Christ gives us is free…..to us. It cost Him His life, but for us the gift of God, eternal life, is free. That is much better that gaining the wages of sin, Death, isn’t it?
LIVE!!! Christ came to give us life. Not just any old life. Eternal life. Abundant life. That means that life is lot more, well, LIVE now. It doesn’t mean that I just got my ticket punched for heaven. It means that everything is more LIVE here now. Faith? Live. Family? Live. Football? Live. Foolishness? Live. It’s all LIVE now.
MUSIC!!! In Ephesians, Paul said that we should speak to each other in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. We should talk to each other in music. A group of friends and I who used to go to break together would sometimes break out in spontaneous hymns or gospel songs. I thought it was strange at first. I’ve come to realize that this is how we, as believers, are wired. To sing songs about our Lord to each other. It doesn’t matter if we can sing well or not. We should just be singing the new song He has placed within our hearts.
Now, here is the best thing. The sign above said that the Free Live Music was from 8:00 to 11:00. Our Free Live Music doesn’t stop. It’s eternal. It never stops.
Do you have Free Live Music in your life? Do you know someone who needs it?
