Life is a keyboard, as babies, we only use a few of the available keys. As we learn to walk, talk, run and sing, every new skill, or task we master, we use more of the keyboard.
We can express, love, joy, peace, and pain, happiness, displeasure, disappointments, or even the blues.
All from this simple keyboard.
If we pay attention, study and work, we can play, beautiful tunes. From simple melodies, to classical, (these can be a real workout).
A good percentage of us, sadly, only use,
a small portion of the available keys. We are satisfied, competent, and at ease where we are.
As Christians, we are called to:
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
The Lord wants and expects us to grow, He gave us a full keyboard. As we mature in Him, Power, Love and a Sound Mind, should be our Norm.
His promises, should be in our hearts and minds, we should know Him and the Power of the Resurection, the fellowship of His Suffering, we need to be conformed to His Image.
He would have us build His Kingdom. In front of us, within reach, at hand, is the Full Council of God. How much of this keyboard, do we actually use?
How much are we taught?
Sad, isn’t it.
