The Music of Love
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. -Colossians 3:14 (NLT)
Perfect harmony. Beautiful description of people coming together in love.
It speaks of unity. Synchronicity. Blending. Flow.
And God is pleased.
It doesn’t come easy, but it can happen. It takes practice, getting to know one another, recognizing each other’s gifts, learning, correcting, following, leading.
Just like a symphony. But the conductor is the Holy Spirit. The audience is only one – the Lord Jesus Christ.
So we dare not be out of tune. We dare not be the screech that will spoil the music. We would want to be a part of making beautiful melody unto the Lord.
Love. Put it on. Wear it. Be comfortable in it. Never remove it. Don’t worry, you won’t smell. On the contrary, you will become a sweet-smelling aroma that wafts up to heaven.
Making music doesn’t get any better.
