Life Is Reverb

I used to always resist the bandwagon or trend as long as possible as a teenager and collegiate.  Now I find myself sipping a latte’ at a Starbucks while on my laptop simultaneously checking my Twitter and Facebook accounts all the while listening to music from my iPod.  I’ve come a long way from my earlier days.  With all that said, I know I’m a bit late to the “blogosphere” but I beleive that this will be a great tool in sharing my heart and life with those close (and not so close?) to me.   Now being in full-time ministry, I look forward to being able to share with the young people and parents I minister to in our church family.

About the title “life is reverb”:  I truly believe our lives reverberate what we invest ourselves in.  The output of our lives is determined by the input.  Simple as that.  Could it be that the reason we are confused about our output is that the input is nothing but the temporal and trivial?

10  With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! 11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Psalms 119:10-11 (ESV)

The storage in our hearts is too often saved for things and should more often be reserved for our precious Savior.  Are we seeking and not wandering?  Are we concerned more with our social networking status than our status before our Father?

6 whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

1 John 2:5-6 (ESV)

How can we echo Jesus’ steps if we not internalizing them?  Not internalizing tradition or code or programmed behavior…but simply Jesus.  I pray that is my desire and yours.

Your life is reverb of something.  You are a product of something.  What is it?  If it’s not Jesus then it’s not worth it.  More to come…
