Who is your drummer?
How have you been? How was the past week? I trust it was well?
So, you see, one truth I have come to realize is that we are all dancers. We are all dancing to something, we’re all dancing to a tune. Irrespective of whether we know it or not, there’s always a rhythm to which our being oscillates. The question is how aware are we of it?
The fundamentals upon which our very essence crystallizes are a product of who our drummer is. There is God the drummer; the tune that comes from the drumbeat produced here is alien to everything that your soul would have ever known, this carries eternal life within it, and ultimately leads to a kingdom whose King is life himself. There is also Satan the drummer; his beats are sweet to the soul and captivating I must say, but they contradict every single thing that the other drummer plays. Just like the drummer, the beats and rhythms are damning and have no trace of life in them. Eventually, the dancers unknowingly dance themselves to eternal death.
The Apostle Paul captured the conflicts that ensue as a result of these two contradicting drumbeats in his letter to Galatia in its fifth chapter and seventeenth verse (the Easy to Read Version):
The sinful self wants what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit wants what is against the sinful self. They are always fighting against each other, so that you don’t do what you really want to do.
The principles that emanate as a result of the rhythms that these two drummers produce are eternity apart. They viciously oppose themselves. They are constantly at war. They have almost nothing in common, except the fact that they both have dancers that consistently dance to their tunes.
The beats that God plays are consistent with principles that govern the kingdom for which He is King. The same for Satan. The only difference is that both rhythms definitely lead to life or death. The message I want to pass across to you this day is this, who patterns your life? God or Satan? The rhythms I talk about here have nothing to do with the songs you play on your devices, I am talking about the principles after which your life follows. That is where the real drumbeat is.
When you interact with people, is it evident that you dance to the tune of a different drummer that is not Satan? As you dispense your duties in your office, is it clear to all and sundry that your dance steps follow the patterns and rhythms that proceed from Zion? As a husband or a wife, can your spouse say that you’re a dedicated dancer to the drumbeats of Christ? These questions should determine if you need to change who your drummer is, and focus your dance steps on the rhythms that flow from Zion.
Again I ask, who is your drummer?
Until next week, stay raptureable🙏🙏
