Suddenly, an impeccably tuxedoed musician appears and strikes a pose with his bass. A fellow cellist joins him. The opening bars of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” gently float through the air. The crowd turns to listen. Now, a stream of violinists, oboists, french horns appear…then, singers, a drummer, a conductor. It’s a flash mob! The orchestra erupts in an exuberant crescendo of music. The audience is lifted, spellbound by this exquisite gift that interrupted their day.
Just like Christ…
He steps out of eternity and into time to intercept our lives. “Welcome, come as you are, join me in this great symphony of life. I have an important part for you to play, a part shaped especially for you that will bring meaning and joy to your existence. Follow me, let us make music together.”
It’s a new year. If you are not yet part of His orchestra, say yes to the Great Conductor. Let the music begin! Enjoy!
