Singing in a choir requires the members to have their focus on the Choirmaster in order to follow him. This is easy if the choristers know the tune and the words. The Choirmaster will lead the choir with clarity to start and stop at the right time, and also to sing high or low in tune with all the other members.
Be in tune with the Master
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps.
1 Peter 2:21
If we have to walk in tune with the master, we have to follow in His steps. Steps indicate climbing and it needs effort like the choristers learning the tune and the words, and looking at the Choirmaster to sing in tune. We will look at some baby steps to move forward this morning.
The first step is that we need to love Him and thereby love others as He has loved us unconditionally. When the soldiers mocked Jesus and spat at Him, He was still able to say ‘‘Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing”.
How then do we love others? It is by sharing the love of Christ with people around us. The soldiers saw the risen Lord, but they did not share the good news. Instead, they buried it because of their love of money and fear of people.
One commandment that the Lord gave the disciples is seen in the following scripture. He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15).
Are we able to walk in tune with Him to love God and love people?
I thank You for this day, and I remember that You picked me up from the miry clay and I am able to walk in tune because Your light shines on me. Help me to share the same love with others to bring them to the light. Amen.
God Bless you,
Theo and Manju
