All about the song

On Saturday, Caedmon played in the family room by running back and
forth launching himself onto the bean bag. All the while, he was
rehashing a song he learned during vacation Bible school. It went
something like this:

one way JESUS
your the only one that i could live for
one way JESUS
your the only one that i could live for!

After he was through singing and jumping, I asked him “Caedmon, how do we live for Jesus?” 

His response was classic, “I don’t know. The song doesn’t say.”

You
know, a lot of us treat our theology the same way. If our pastors
haven’t preached a sermon on it yet, then we don’t have a response. 
This should deeply trouble us.  Peter puts it this way, ” Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy.”

  1. Man, you are good at catching those little question marks! Christian music is beginning to become a lot more about the emotion of the music the spiritual truth of the song itself. . .
