IF WE ARE THE BODY???

EXODUS 20:3-5

“YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME. YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FOR YOURSELF AN IMAGE IN THE FORM OF ANYTHING IN HEAVEN ABOVE OR ON EARTH BENEATH OR IN THE WATERS BELOW. YOU SHALL NOT BOW DOWN TO THEM OR WORSHIP THEM; FOR I, THE LORD YOUR GOD, AM A JEALOUS GOD, PUNISHING THE CHILDREN FOR THE SIN OF THE PARENTS TO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THOSE WHO HATE ME.

Hi all. Well recently I met someone from Beckah Shae’s facebook page. Remember Beckah Shae is the Christian singer I been talking so highly about all year long lol.  Anyways there’s a friend of hers that’s been keeping up with my blogs and has been doing what he could to help encourage and support me and I recently found out hes a fantastic writer and he writes music and blogs just like me. Recently he wrote this blog about what he calls (eyecons in the music industry).  I do not want to get to deep in to what he meant by that, because I feel it is his place to share with who he wants to share it with, because it was his blog and his story or his word that GOD gave him to share.  But I would like to share one of the things I got out of reading his blog. Part of what his blog was saying is, we should not have idols of any kind.  In his blog, he focused on what he called mainstream music and the people in that type of industry.  Those of you who get confused by the word “mainstream” that just means, as us church people say (worldly music), or music that is not based and centered around GOD and biblical things.  He talked about how people basically (this is my words not his), but basically how, we all can get hypnotize by music and the people singing it, that’s what I got out of what he was saying, but he focused on mainstream music, and again I want to focus on Christian music and bring something out that GOD put on my heart while reading his blog.  Do people get hypnotized by mainstream music? yes I think they do, but here’s what may shock you, I not only think that people can get hypnotized by mainstream music and think that the people singing it become our idols, but I also think that happens in the Christian world!!!! I know some of you may not agree and may even get upset by me saying this, but I am sorry its true.  For many years as a teen and young adult I volunteered at different churches and youth groups and children’s churches and if you sat down and got to know a lot of these kids, even (church kids), they get so focused on the STAR factor, that they completely forget and sorry but some even don’t care about the GOD factor and that’s so sad to me.  Because to me the GOD part is the important part of things.  But whats even more sad, is the fact that in the church, we are just as bad at showing these kids that whats important is GOD, not the fancy clothes these singers wear, not the nice jewelry they may have, or the fancy high tech videos and concerts they may do, GOD is what should be the importance here. The bible says we should have no idols besides GOD right? so than why are we teaching these kids to think of christian singers in that way? please don’t get me wrong I’m not saying you cant look up to someone or have a favorite singer, or even have fun with music, I believe you can.  As you all know Beckah Shae is my favorite singer and I brag about her often and I love having fun singing to her music, but I do not go as far as to say shes my idol, yes I love her and her music and if she reads this blog I mean no disrespect to her, but she is not my idol, because I only have one man that is my idol, that is my GOD, he is my everything, hes the center of my life, he is my world, he is what makes me, who I am.  Part of what makes me love Beckah Shae so much, is she doesn’t represent herself as being this important person, she represents herself as being a Christian, GODLY, woman, singer and servant of the LORD and that’s how it should be.  I think people in the church need to go back to focusing on the love of CHRIST and servant-hood, instead of whats popular and “cool”, we are starting to be no different than the world by acting, the way we act at times.  For instance a few years ago I was talking to some teens and they were all excited, because they were getting ready to go to a worship competition, a WORSHIP COMPETITION are you kidding me?? I have no problem with music competitions, but when you go as far as worship competitions, I’m sorry but your headed in to some very uncharted territory.  Please don’t take this all as being judgmental, but I cant help but have a problem with stuff like that.  Because when did WORSHIPING our LORD become a competitive thing? it should not be, it just shouldn’t, I’m sorry. WORSHIPING OUR LORD should be a privilege, a personal, private, intimate, special, spiritual, loving and holy time. We need to stop trying to be “cool” and be who GOD has made us to be, or who he wants us to be.  I don’t get the importance of being cool?? I can see why kids may get sucked in to thinking that’s important, but why do adults? and worse why do churches? we are the body of CHRIST, who cares about being cool? We have everything in our reach people, its right at our feet, we just don’t see it. We have the creator of everything, the ruler, the king of kings, the LORD of LORDS right beside us. Hes right there willing to give and do anything for us.  The things of the world, earthly things, have nothing over us. We are the body of CHRIST, which is why I picked the song from casting crowns called if we are the body, as my video to write about, please watch the video above and listen to the words of that song and you may get a better understanding as to where I’m going with this.  We are the body of CHRIST which means we can do all things, we can achieve all things.  If there are things in your life your reaching for, but yet you cant reach, than you need to ask yourself, why that is? because again we are the body of CHRIST and we have the mind of CHRIST, so if there are things that you want to happen in your life and yet nothings happening, do something about that than, Beckah Shae’s husband posted something on his facebook page that really stood out to me, he said, to get something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. Amen that really spoke to me, because that is exactly what the LORDS been showing me this year. Thank you Jack shocklee, or as I think most people on facebook call you shoc, for saying that. GOD bless everyone and anyone that reads this blog.  I hope it touches your hearts and speaks to you all as much as other peoples blogs have spoken to me.  Also, before I end, I just want to say thank you, to all the wonderful, amazing, powerful, spiritual people that have really been teaching me and been great GODLY, loving people to me.  Your words of wisdom have really helped  encourage, teach, guide, mold and inspire me. Love you all and GOD bless.  See ya again real soon 🙂
