Moving to the rhythm …

Take a moment to watch the video below …

There’s definitely some comedy in this video, but also something most of us can relate to.

The guy in the video thinks he has the beat and is in the groove, he’s going to show everybody how it’s done and be the star! But he doesn’t have the beat right, he’s not in the groove, and winds up embarrassing himself.

We’ve all been there.

We’ve all had times where we’ve thought, “This is my moment!” Only to mess things up in spectacular fashion and feel foolish. Sometimes it’s just because our timing was off just a little; often it’s because we want to be the center of attention.

Following Jesus is about joining Him in the dance of life, but He sets the Way. He invites us to jump in and it doesn’t matter how foolish we look, we just need to move to the beat He sets. It’s Jesus who is the center of attention, it’s the Son of God who sets the rhythm for our lives. Every time we try to steal the spotlight that rightfully belongs only to Him, we look foolish.

That’s because, in those moments, we are!

 “Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life …” John 14:6a.

Does Jesus set the rhythm for your life, or are you trying to dance to a different beat?
