The topic of this discussion is aimed at those, " like myself ", who have had or are having difficulty in building a personal relationship with God. Most of us can open The Bible and scripture whip some knowledge out of mouth easily. However, to capture the attention of those that are lost, sometimes takes a plan of action. First let me add that i don't believe there is a way to substitute, " GODS WORD ". I do believe, however, that there is a way to reach those like myself, that may have been written off, with the powerful inspiration, leading up to that planted seed of hope.
I have had the opportunity to work with those that are involved with community outreach programs and productions. The methods of brainstorming a positive message to reach our youth, sometimes takes us outside the box, however, in my opinion, within the word of God. MATTHEW 5:16, LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN, THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS, AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.
Music is a beautiful way of expression, especially when the lyrics have that divine message of hope. I listen to a varity of songs, ( Gospel, Rap, R & B, etc. ). In my experience i have found songs that just fit right into the message of the day, with the inspirational impact as if it was God speaking to me for whatever the moment or matter. I have no musical background, except singing in a couple of groups as a kid, doing a talent show. However, i have written the lyrics of a few songs, playing off the beat in my head as i write. The point is that in that moment those lyrics fit into a personal experience. Have you ever heard the cry of a " RAPPER " in a song that just got all deep into their personality or something they experienced. ? I have. From DMX to NAS, and TUPAC for sure, have sung out in the " RAPPERS CRY ".
Sometimes we have to go out of the box to reach the heart and soul of one that have a desire to accept Christ in their life. Writing has helped me deal with some major issues in my life. I believe this was Gods way of helping me reach adulthood. In todays time we must become creative enough to understand how God works in the lives of others, and be willing to go outside the box to bring our youth back home. The streets and gang violence have destroyed the basic family foundation in many homes across America. I recently read this in " GOD'S LITTLE DEVOTIONAL BOOK ", a daily meditational book, " It's good to be a Christian and know it, but it's better to be a Christian and show it ! " Support your community outreach programs brothers /sisters.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
THEREFORE, TEACHING THE UNREACHABLE VIA WAY OF THE WORD OF GOD THRU THEIR UNDERSTANDING IS GOING OUTSIDE THE BOX IN GODS WILL. PEACE !!!
