I’ve been listening to a lot of E.S. Posthumus (http://www.esposthumus.com/) lately. They are a group that writes pieces that sound a lot like huge Movie theme songs. One after another after another after another. I love listening to them on my ipod shuffle while driving. In fact I’d encourage you to open up another Internet tab and go to their website and let the song that is playing there be in the background while you read the rest of this post.
So, I’ve also been thinking about when our family stands before the Lord. I want all of us to hear those words from Jesus, “Well done!” I want our family to hear those words. So as I have been driving around I’ve pictured us coming out of the fog toward Jesus, sort of at the end of the movie, with one of those E.S. Posthumus songs playing in the background. W’e’re walking toward Jesus and we’re laughing and looking at each other like we can’t believe it’s over and we’re arriving in the presence of Jesus (all the time E.S. Posthumus playing in the background). And as a family we stand there waiting to hear those words.
Think about your family today, not just you. Are you resourcing, encouraging, challenging and praying for your family, so that you will all some day stand before Jesus and here those words, “Well done?” Put on some E.S. Posthumus today and dream of what that day will be like for your family. I guarantee it will bring tears to you eyes.
That’s this leader’s view today.
