Pastor read this passage in church yesterday... 2peter:3-9
"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to you faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. but if anyone does not have them ,he is near sighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins."
The guys in my band are of great influence, godless, materialistic influence. They have good hearts, and they respect me because I am the dictator. I sing and play guitar, I kinda run the show anyways. I am currently revamping my lyrics so that they are less evil, and contain a greater purpose within. But, I am a weak person, should I give up and dedicate my life to Jesus through the church, or express my commitment, through my lyrics and songs. I feel I would have a greater impact on the secular community than through the church. I play drums in church, there isn't much more I can give to them, since they are more than happy with the vibe and excitement my presence in the church has created.
I want to be a servant of god, but I want to make sure I'm putting my talents where they are needed most.
Anyone care to have an opinion?
