Get In Tune

"Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped." - Jack Hayford
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
A sheep rancher in the remote mountains of Idaho found that his violin was out of tune, and, try as he would, he was unable to make the instrument sound the way it should. A frequent listener to a radio station in California, he wrote the station concerning his problem, asking these good people at a certain hour and minute on a certain day to strike the right note for him. This they did: stopping everything else, silencing all other sounds for a moment, they struck that note. In his shepherd's hut in the distant mountains, the shepherd heard that sound, and from that single note he put his instrument into tune again.
We can so easily become confused or lose our way out there in the weekday world of days, and end up totally out of tune with God. The only way we can get back in tune is through worship, where we listen for the signal-tone He strikes for our lives, for the pitch He gives by which our hearts may be put in tune.
