On Wednesday of this week, I posted a blog about a band that I have recently discovered that put two of my deepest prayers into song. You can read about that and listen to those two beautiful songs by clicking HERE.
A friend also recently told me that she likes the way that I use the word reality. I use that word a lot in conversation. I love reality because reality is what is real. Reality is the opposite of lies. Jesus said that He is the “Way, the Truth, and the Life…” (John 14:6). While many folks may be familiar with this passage of scripture, many have not known that the word commonly translated as truth in John 14:6 can also be translated as reality. Basically, Jesus is saying that He is Reality!
I have discovered that music is a big part of reality. There is a rhythm to just about everything. Music is everywhere. Because Christ is reality, He is continually being expressed through music regardless of the awareness of the composer who made the music. Listening for reality (Christ) in music can be such a life-giving practice. Sometimes, music can even raise the dead!
