An Old Musician

An Old Musician

How do those who know of God 
meet and part? 

Like the way an old musician
will greet his beloved instrument 
and take special care 
to enhance the final note 
of each performance. 

       In church, the passing of the peace is a feeling of connection with others who know God. Sometimes we let society, work, school, family, partying, interrupt our lives. Interrupt us from our heart constancy finding a place where God is celebrated. Interrupt our obligation to reach out to people who haven't found God in their lives yet, because it is such a powerful force that we can give to any we meet. Today, let God interrupt your life. He is alive in us. What does that mean? It means that the spirit of God - his love, his loyalty, his compassion, his constancy, etc. is alive in our hearts. That is what we can give to others. There is no need to say only believe in my God and my definition of him, but rather say believe in God, and welcome him into the gaps within your own soul. The same power that performed miracles resides in the heart of every believer. Happy Easter!

      Ephesians 1:19-20 (NLT): "I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms."

     Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV): "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end."
