This Little Light

So I had a cool opportunity this weekend. I was asked to play a song for the 3 and 4 year olds Sunday morning. After I was done, we sang a few more songs off a CD. One of these songs was "This Little Light of Mine". Now I couldn't tell you the last time I sang that song.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, Let it shine, Let it shine

Hide it under a bushel, NO!, I'm gonna let it shine...
Such a simple song, but it really got me thinking. Am I letting my light shine? Now I think to myself: "Hey you're not doing so bad, Will, you have an ichthus fish on the back of your car, you wear your "Jesus is Rad" shirt, you lead worship each week, you blog about God, you are on staff at a church." That's a pretty good resume...but then again a relationship with God is not a job.

When I was in high school, we talked a lot about posers - someone who could dress and talk like they were involved in something even if they weren't. Sometimes I wonder if I am a Christian "poser"? I mean I can talk the talk, I have lots of head knowledge about God. But what these 3 & 4 year olds were showing me Sunday was heart knowledge. They were just worshiping. They didn't care that if my guitar was in-tune, or if I remembered all the words, or if there was a band backing me up, or that I wasn't playing the latest CCM hit off the radio. They were worshiping to a simple song in a simple way, and I believe that God heard their worship.
Luke 18:17 - Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.
I don't want to "hide it under a bushel". I don't want to be a Christian "poser" either. What I want for me and for REVEAL is to be able to worship God with abandon but also with purity of heart like those 3 & 4 year olds.

Dream Big...Pray Bigger!
