PrayFit devotional: Teach The World To Sing-- June 27
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” –Romans 10:9
Read: Romans 10
Yesterday at the gym I was listening to a great new soundtrack filled with well-known classics in my headphones. The voices on this one song and the catchy chorus were just too good not to join in. So without hesitation, I began to add a harmony line; something I learned from countless days singing with Mom.
Well, as I got off the machine to start lifting, one of the employees nearby raised his eyebrows and looked at me as if to say, “Don’t quit your day job, pal.” I grinned and chuckled to myself. But it dawned on me. He didn’t know I was singing the harmony. See, even if you’re in tune, any harmony line doesn’t sound right to others if they can’t hear the melody.
Folks, our lives, the daily routines and these bodies are merely harmonies. Let’s remember that we’re out of tune if we’re too focused on our minor line, never letting others hear who we’re listening to. You know, “I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony,” but that can only happen if I’m in unison with God’s favorite song of all — and the only one He lifts His Holy hand for silence to hear — the song of Jesus.–Jimmy Peña www.prayfit.com/2012/06/
