A holy life

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

         God called us to holy lives,
                  not because of anything we have done
                  but according to God’s own purpose and grace.

                           —2 Timothy 1.9
         We are merely slaves;
                  we have done only what we ought to have done.

                           —Luke 17.10

One piano key
has no song
but occasional notes
without melody or pattern.
It can’t understand the piano,
doesn’t know the music,
surely senses nothing
of an audience.
But when moved,
ignorant of all
but the maestro’s touch,
it strikes its strings
exactly as it is moved to.
And not by its merit
as a single key
nor its grasp of the whole,
but by the presence
of the virtuoso
and the grace of the music
of which you know nothing
a great beauty is created
that moves the Listener.

For the sake of that song
let God move through you
without knowing more.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
