One of the talks at Cherish was titled Opus Number 3. This was all about God’s church releasing the sound of heaven here on earth and how we all had a part to play. Much as an orchestra has many musicians so we all play a part in God’s church. If one of us is missing, out of tune, flat, too fast, too slow it shows and the noise is not harmonious. As a church, we need to be sending out a harmonious sound to attract others to come find out what the beautiful noise is all about.
1 Corinthians 13:1- What if I could speak all languages of humans and of angels? If I did not love others, I would be nothing more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
We need to become one, to stop the current cacophony of sound and instead send out a symphony of beauty.
Opus number one, creation, all heaven looked down and saw that it was good, all hailed the Holy Trinity as God’s symphony of beauty was completed, on earth as it is in heaven.
Opus number two, the crucifixion, no more separation, not since creation had the veil been removed, God’s beauty and love revealed through that one selfless act, on earth as it in in heaven.
Opus number three, God’s church at last in unity, the sound of heaven released as each come together blending their sounds harmoniously, attractively loving others like Jesus did, on earth as it is in heaven
