Wednesday Devotion - 12/11/19

In the 1950’s & 60’s the Western world was hopping with the fresh new music of rock n roll. Artists like Elvis and The Beatles were flying off the shelves. However, in the Soviet Union such Western music was forbidden to its citizens. Of courses that didn’t keep bootleggers from making their own vinyl records to sell on the Black market, to which the Soviet Union responded by rationing and withholding vinyl. The Musical Criminals weren’t held back for long, they soon discovered that old discarded x-rays could be used to hold sound and become records. It always amazes me what people can accomplish if they want to badly enough. Making a certain vacation happen financially, dedicating enormous amounts of hours to a job for a promotion, spending three hours online looking for that song you only know one line from; people will make things happen if they want it bad enough. I wish we saw more of that determination in people’s spiritual lives. What if people had the same passion about scripture as they do about music? What if we made it to worship services as regularly as we make it to work? Sadly, the most important thing in our lives isn’t often our highest priority. We should look more like the apostles who were willing to face death to further the kingdom of God. Regardless of any obstacles I pray that we would pursue God with a passion.

Blessings,
