This week, I want us to look at Colossians 3:16 and Ephesians 5:18-19 from a different angle. In these verses, we not only see the importance of Christ-centered, congregational singing. But we also see the central place of the heart in worship.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my five years of leading worship. My voice has cracked. My guitar pick has broken. My pickup battery has died. I’ve started singing in the wrong key. One time, my guitar string snapped and almost hit my sister in the face. I’ve even led with blood running down my fingers. But what happened this past Sunday might be the best mistake I’ve ever made while leading worship.
To embrace the beauty of life, we must first face the reality of death. Last week, we acknowledged the pathway of death. From the moment we take our first breath, death looms on the horizon.
There’s nothing like riding an ATV through a field of tall grass. Before long, paths appear as the grass is trampled by the tires. A well-worn path eventually becomes an easy path to ride.
Life is directional. We’re all going somewhere. Even when we feel stagnant, something is changing.
What paths are being formed by the direction of your life?
