Music Notes

What controls you?  It seems I look around in all kinds of directions and see people out of control.  2 Corinthians 5:14 states, “For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died.”  So who or what controls us?  So many things vie for control of our love, our priority, our time, etc.?  Isn’t it amazing that the God of the universe, the God of all power and majesty, the God of creation, came to this earth and gave up control of his own life?  To show us the secret for finding Abundant life — life to it’s fullest.  So do we embrace that Abundant Life or are we so focused on being in control of our own lives and everything around us that we find ourselves seeking to be our own God?  Satan thought Jesus would give in to the final temptation because it was the temptation that ensnared him.  We sing about the Victory we have in Jesus but it’s only victory when we give up control to Christ.  Christ has done all the work for us, all we have to do is yield.  Let’s help each other in that journey!  Randy
