I had not planned on using this photo as one of my “Beautiful Moments” pics – but after listening to our choir yesterday morning I changed my mind.
As they sang the song, “Playing Games At The Foot Of The Cross”, I thought back to this picture I had taken on a date with my husband the night before. (He’s really sweet to go on a date and carry camera equipment all over Greenville!)
This church is an old church in downtown Greenville. You can’t get close to it on most days – I think mainly because of the VERY old and unique grave sites that surround the building on several sides.
I guess it’s the symbology that made me put the picture and the song together.
The chorus of this song says, “And they were playing games – at the foot of the cross, So close to His struggle, yet so far from the cost. Never feeling the shame, and never sensing the loss, They were playing games – at the foot of the cross.”
I had to examine my own life, what am I doing that counts for eternity…or am I just playing “games” – living life “my way”.
Most of my days I’d rather hang out at the empty tomb…and celebrate there with a victory party!! But today, I think maybe it’s important to step back and look at the cross and my life.
Am I accessable, am I alive with the Life of Christ. The sun is setting – the hour is late – BUT the SON is GLORIOUS! It’s time to set aside the games that hold us back – and run for the prize!!
