(An original Christian rap.)
Words are okay, but the Gospel’s a new way, of livin’.
It’s not enough just to hear it, we’ve gotta live in the Spirit.
We need to follow & obey the One who is the Way,
Everyday! Everyday! Everyday!
It’s not easy to live the Gospel. For example, 2 people cannot be in control of the same thing at the same time. (Instead of 2 pilots flying one airplane, airlines use a pilot and a copilot.) If a someone is in control of a his/her life, then God isn’t. We have to let God be our boss, not just our adviser.
We need help living the Gospel — we need Christian community. If a human being is in control of a church meeting, then the Divine Being is left to copilot. However, if the human lets go of his agenda (or program) and allows the meeting to flow in the Spirit, God will show up and show out.
So what is God’s agenda for a church meeting? It is explained in the New Testament; I Corinthians 14:26.
Some people say that this verse is impractical — that it won’t work. However, it is working every week in Nashville at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center. Come and see for yourself: Sunday mornings @ 10:45 & Thursday nights @ 6:30, 225 Berry Street, Nashville, 37207.
