Is Jesus Christ the best musician ever?
well… is he? I just listened to a message titled “our inner world” that challenged some of my thoughts on profession, knowledge and Christianity. The question I ask is in response to the question the speaker asks – and to be honest… and I mean brutally honest, my knee-jerk reaction is tainted somewhat with what Christ did as a person (I mean he was probably a good carpenter … right?), and not recognizing who He is in God… and looking at who we have as examples of excellence in any field or profession (too often rife with humanistic / nihilistic / impersonal / pagan beliefs)… I mean – considering;
1 Corinthians 1:24 But to those who believe Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God..
Colossians 2:3 For in Him are hid all of the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.
Christ is the best computer scientist, lawyer, drummer, scholar, biologist, political scientist…and so on – right? I mean He holds all knowledge in every field that can be discovered – but today there is an “implicit” (not explicit) atmosphere that God had been disproved, especially in academia, but in all professions (even some religious)… anyway, this is good stuff, and I am convicted and humbled in how far I have to grow in Christ in my daily work. FYI – this file is transferred from a tape – so its a little dodgy on audio fidelity.
