I happen to be blessed with a beautiful voice. I was also gifted with a measure of humbleness beyond degree. Some people are not so fortunate.
I was sitting at church services last Sunday in front of one of the older men in the congregation. We sing “a capella” and this poor old guy sounded like an asthmatic bagpiper. He hit more “notes” (and I use that term loosely) in one verse than there were in the whole darned song. Things like that can really unnerve a finely tuned instrument like me.
Then I happened to catch a glimpse of him during the chorus (which he was absolutely murdering, by the way) and I got a good look at Christianity!
Here’s what Christianity looks like.
His eyes were sparkling. His 80 year old flushed face looked like a little boy’s. His joy was unbounded as he proclaimed “EVEN SO, IT IS WELL, WITH MY SOUL”.
Twenty plus years ago, this same man was my Sunday School teacher. He taught me some good lessons by his knowledge and his manner of life.
Last Sunday, he taught me another lesson. You sing to God with your heart and soul not just your voice. I hope that I can sing that well some day.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
