The Spirit Say Write ! - And The Spirit Says Sing !
The spirit says write, but what shall I write? The spirit says sing, but what shall I sing? The spirit says go, but where shall I go?
If I were a prophet I would prophesy. If I were a virtuoso I would sing. If I were a traveler I would go. I am not a prophet, so I cannot prophesy. I am not a virtuoso, so I cannot sing. I have not the means of travel , so I am unable to tour the world and see for myself all the great wonders of God's creation. What then must I do to please and appease the spirit within me that says write, speak, sing, and go?
I must pray and ask God to reveal to me what he wants me to do with the remainder of my life on earth. I must offer myself as a sacrifice upon the altar of the Lord at the feet of Jesus, and remember the great sacrifice he made for me when his hands and feet were pierced and a spear thrust through his side, and divine blood flowed like a river for me. I must rejoice at the remembrance of his glorious resurrection and remember that his resurrection foretold my own someday. I must faithfully use whatever resources and talents that God has bestowed upon me, all for his honor and glory, and to make a difference in a world filled with gloom and darkness.
Jesus has told us in his word that we who know him as our Lord and Savior are the salt and the light of the world. Our presence in the world is to be as seasoning in a tasteless society which know only the carnal, physical, and sinful aspects of life on earth and have either never heard , or care less about the celestial and spiritual realm of a higher existence which is known only to those who will believe and receive the truth of the word of God. Jesus told his early disciples, and us as well, to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
When the spirit within me says write, I am compelled to write about Jesus and his love for me and the whole world. I love to tell the story of Jesus and his love. When the spirit within me says sing, though I have not the voice of an angel, I can rejoice in my heart and somehow make a joyful noise unto the Lord with praise and thanksgiving. When the spirit says go, I can go next door to my neighbor and offer a cup of cold water and remind him that Jesus saves, and that he came into the world to save sinners just like me.
I am not a prophet, I am not a virtuoso, I am not a world traveler, but I can do these small things for the Lord, and I ought to.
