We all get to choose where we set up the stage of our lives — before the Crowds, the Court, the Congregation, the Critics (inner or otherwise)-– or the Cross of Christ.
All except One will assess your performance.
Only One will accept you before your performance.
When identity is not drawn from a performance – but drawn toward a Person, the person of Jesus – this is the place where a life makes music. If your performance is fueled by a need for acceptance, that is what burns your life out.
But when His already acceptance is the very fuel of your performance – this is what ignites a life into pure glory.
Profound acceptance is what gives you profound performance.
Now you can give the performance of your life — because it’s based on the completeness of your acceptance: Which means you dance.
Which means an erupting relief of grateful joy moves you.
Which means there’s this symphonic movement — that moves the world.
