Stay in Tune

Stay in Tune

July 1

Read: ROMANS 6:12-23

During a worship band rehearsal, we had to stop in the middle of a song. We sounded off. Sure enough, the bass player found one string that was completely out of tune. After he adjusted his instrument, we sounded cohesive and pleasant.

Have you ever heard or played an instrument that was out of tune?

Look at verse 13: “No longer present your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and present your members to God as instruments of righteousness.”

The Greek word for instrument can also be translated as weapon or tool. The bassist in our band played a crucial role in the functioning of the whole. Similarly, we members of congregations play a part in the functioning of our church body. Are we sharpening, polishing, and tuning ourselves for righteousness, so that we may create harmony in our churches?

Orchestrator of the universe, equip us with discipline, that we may choose righteousness. AMEN.
