We went to the New Kids On The Block concert last night. Our daughter bought us tickets for Christmas.
I’m reeling from the overtly sexual messages that were delivered. If you were there, or you’ve seen the Mix Tape Tour in another city please don’t let that take away from the A class performance it was. I’m not here to review the excellence of the art. The concert was amazing, but my conscience is bothered by the promiscuity that I engaged in during the 80s and 90s.
When I point a finger at someone there are are three pointing back at me. That does not mean I continue in the depravity that has dragged humanity down since the beginning of time. Jesus told the woman caught in the act of adultery to go and sin no more.
I saw Donnie Wahlberg at the end of one song point and look to heaven, and I wondered to myself if he was recognizing the presence of God on that stage. I choose to believe he was because at another point during the concert he made the sign of the cross.
I am a sinful human being, and even in my depravity I reflect the glory of God because I was created in His image. I think that’s the point I’m trying to make.
I live in this world, but I am not of this world, and there will come a time when we will be in the visible presence of God to worship Him in an eternal concert that will end all concerts, and I long for that day.
I thought about all the time that has passed since the music last night was first recorded, and Tiffany sang about it, and even though many people have yet to commit their lives to Jesus Christ many have. There’s nothing new under the sun, and there will be people on the day of judgment who will be glorying in their shame because they have rejected Jesus, but I will not be one of them.
My life will always represent my LORD and Savior, and if I deny Him before men then He will deny He knew me in the presence of our Father.
When we experience something good in this life it’s from God, and that means a good meal, a New Kids On The Block concert or sex with our husband or wife.
Satan will do all he can to distract us from the good that God is bringing, but don’t let the mediums he uses do that to you. Open your eyes to the real love and acceptance that Jesus Christ brings.
