Music has Passion

Music is a magical tool. You can make people cry by playing a sad song or laugh by playing a funny song. You can feel cold by playing popular Christmas songs, even in the summer. You can make people move if the music so hot your toes are compelled to tap.

I’ve heard a piano sound like a bee (Flight of the Bumblebee) and a trumpet sound like a horse. Music can set the stage for romance or give you a rhythm to skate by.

But the only time music moves you is when it is being performed with a lot of heart. The audience can tell if the musicians are giving it all they’ve got. This reminds me of the verse in the book of Revelation (Rev 3:15-16) that speaks to having a passion either for or against something.
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Having no passion at all is distasteful.

This month, I’m writing about music. I’ll post reviews of movies that have songs that make you want to dance. And on Seek God With Me, I’ll bring up Bible verses about how God uses music. Let’s start our vocal warm-ups as you Seek God With Me.
