Drum beat of eternity.
Thinking of the New Year... here's some meat to chew on...
"We must make a choice. Will we continue to march to the drum beat of conformity and respectability, or will we, listening to the beat of a more distant drum, move to its echoing sounds? Will we march only to the music of time, or will we, risking criticism and abuse march to the soul-saving music of eternity? More than ever before we are today challenged by the words of yesterday, "be not conformed to this world; but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." - Martin Luther King Jr.
Reminds me of some lyrics in a song by Nathan Rowe called Let Justice Roll...
"Will you live untainted by this world?
Will you die, for the gospel of our King?
Will you hear the weeping of our Lord? He calls...
Will you be my hands and feet - to the lost, the last and least - will you stand? will you go?
Will you burn and show my light? Will you break the chains and fight? Will you stand, will you go?
LET JUSTICE ROLL.
Bring it on Jesus... we are ready.
