Will You Be There?

Multitudes, from Hollywood to the music industry, lined up to perform musical and spoken tributes to Michael Jackson this week including Justin Timberlake, Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey who performed the Jackson Five hit "I'll Be There." And while "Man In The Mirror", "We Are The World", and "Will You Be There" are a few of My Michael Faves [click playlist on right for more], the overwhelming response to Michael's death reminded me of a text.

"Though he [Jesus] was God, he did not demand and cling to his rights as God. He made himself nothing; he took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form. And in human form he obediently humbled himself even further by dying a criminal's death on a cross" [Philippians 2:5-8 NLT]. And one day because He did, "At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" [verse 11]. The death of the so-called "King of Pop" reminds us this week that one day the multitudes on earth will bow before Jesus the King of Kings [Revelation 19:16]. So why not start now? It's as simple as ABC.
  1. Ask - Ask Jesus into your life [He loves you like crazy and would rather die than spend eternity without you!!!]
  2. Believe - Believe the truth about yourself and Jesus [There's nothing you can do to make Him love you more / There's nothing you can do, to make Him love you less!!!]
  3. Come - Come and keep coming [John 6:37 says "All who come will never be driven away."]
Would you think about these things for at least the seven minutes it takes to watch one of the more thought provoking music vids Michael Jackson produced? Feel free to comment below or email me [mike4tune@gmail.com] if you have want more info about how to become or stay Christian!!!
