At what cost do people sell everything they believe in for fame or money? I’ve seen Christian artist come and go, they rise to the top saying everything is about Jesus, they feed people Scriptures in lyrics, but once they reach the top….Something happens, they dull the message, they forget their purpose, and the community suffers.
Jesus says it well, “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” (Mark 8:36)
Forgetting one’s purpose is a tragedy and when that happens the person wonders in the desert, never finding true satisfaction. It’s like Saul who disobeyed God, and was tormented in his mind till the day he died.
When we grow in popularity we must NEVER FORGET OUR PURPOSE. Our purpose is the reason why we are here, it is the beat to our song…so don’t crumble to appease itching ears, keep in the pattern of your purpose.
