We live between the songs, a song of earthly deliverance and a song of heavenly deliverance. And here we are—caught between songs, caught between worlds.
We live between the first song and the final song of the Bible. These songs show us a picture of God’s salvation stretching far back into history and forward into all eternity.
We anticipate holidays like Labor Day for weeks on end. Then it passes, and we step into our daily fall routine. We switch between the extraordinary and the ordinary, and our spiritual lives follow suit.
Sometimes saying “yes” to God’s will for our lives means saying “no” to good opportunities.
The Word of God is a fire. We excel at gathering and worshipping around the fire, but perhaps we’ve forgotten the fire is also meant to refine us.
