One of my friends here at Riverside shared this thought with me this afternoon via a text message and I thought I’d share it with you (revisions were made for privacy):
“Hey. I have to share this with you. I picked up my son at his grams house today. When I got by him I was quietly singing “Grace Abounds” and he looked at me and smiled.
I knew what he was thinking, so I asked him if he has been singing songs in his head today.
He got all excited and said, “Yes dad, I’ve been singing, “Grace Abounds, “Revelation Song” and also “Because of the Cross” and “Never Let Go”
It led me to the thought of how “penetrating” it is, what you and the creative arts team’s ministry does. That a 6 year old boy (and I) has these songs going through his head (as well as others I’m sure), therefore having fellowship with God, while going about his innocent day of kindergarten. All the glory to God, but it’s though the team’s passion to produce heartfelt worship.
Well done good and faithful servants!
Please continue to lead your team with God’s guidance and thank you for penetrating mine and my son’s heart.
So to all of you who serve the kingdom on a regular basis through the arts — what you do is a tool that God uses to penetrate the hearts and minds of those who witness your art. To God be all the glory!
