“Every great team relies on a conductor to establish direction.” As I was waiting for Handel’s Messiah to begin at the Cincinnati Music Hall, I flipped through the pamphlet and ran across this quote.
It hit me hard. I asked myself, “Is God my conductor?”
Do we let Him direct the way we live our life? And as a Body, do we know the music we are playing?
In everyday life, do we think of God as the one true God? In today’s secular society, I don’t think we do. We have other gods that rule—money, power, entertainment, celebrities, sex and drugs. But God commanded, “You shall have no other gods before Me” (Exodus 20:3Thou shalt have no other gods before me. See All...). We need to have God as our conductor to direct our lives and keep us on track to the rhythm of the music of His word.
As we go through life, do we know the music we are playing? In other words, do we know how to live God’s way of life? The Bible is the sheet music—we should be studying it every day. We should be changing any behavior that doesn’t come into subjection to His way of life and character. We have to let Him direct our path.
In any music group, you need to practice. We should be practicing living God’s way every single day. That’s the only way we will make a meaningful change in our life. Because we can watch the director all we want, but if we don’t know the music, we’ll be lost. The same follows in our relationship with God. If we don’t know and follow what He has to say, we’ll be lost.
We need to rely on God to guide our way and keep us on track (Proverbs 3:6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. See All...). Rely on God to be the director for your life.
