Matt Redmanís Call To Passion

June 20, 2011

In his upcoming book, Mirror Ball: Living a Life that Reflects Godís Radiance, worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman reminds us that even when we feel insufficient to reflect Godís glory, God can show through us as light radiates through a prism. Living in this truth will transform how we view our words, our relationships and our daily lives.

According to Redman, we are called to live full of passion. ď...Passion is not only that which gets us up in the morning; it helps us see it through to the end of the day. And for anyone who has truly encountered the wonder of the cross, it soon becomes a way of life. If youíre looking for a heightened way to tell God you love Him, the very best way has little to do with stringing poeticsentences together. It involves a life laid down in service and adoration. The concrete evidence of whether worship has lived or died in us will always be our lives. We sing our songs with good intent, but in the end our lives must become the evidence.

ďIn and of ourselves we have no light. But in His bright and shining light we are transformed and begin to radiate the glories of our God to the world around us. You may be feeling totally inadequate for that task. But if so, you have simply forgotten the most important part of the equation. It is not about you and your best efforts. It is the light, power and love of Christ illuminating our fragile lives... (Redman).Ē

Through story, Scripture and practical inspiration, Redman encourages his readers to remember that, however inadequate they may feel to live out this passion, God will work in and through them. ď...After all, the same God who said Ďlet there be lightí has made His light to shine in their hearts, illuminating their lives and the lives of those around them... (Redman).Ē

Mirror Ball: Living a Life that Reflects Godís Radiance is set to be released in August and is anticipated by Redmanís fans.
