3 The Day The Music Died John 12:12-19;19:15 The Day The Music Died John 12:12-19;19:15

4 The Music Came Jesus came into a skeptical, cynical world – ”Truth? What is truth?” Lifeless gods & goddesses took worship by force. Economic prosperity grew as souls of everyday men and women increasingly descended into meaningless poverty. The religious world? They busily cleaned the outside saying nothing about the inside. “Truth” was made out to be the servant of religion – pious, meaningless, disconnected

5 So religion gave faithfully to the church but its people ceased to live out the simple justice and love of God. Religion believed it had a corner on the market of truth and loved its importance and power more. Religion let men live unclean and lost without them knowing it. Religion increased shame and guilt but did nothing to help. Religious practice demanded ethical and nice behavior but hid the key to the kingdom of God. Religious men did not live as they said. Men who wished to find God had to crawl over them. Lk. 11: 40-53

6 The Music Swells You will give birth to a Son, the Son of the Most High whose kingdom will never end. Mary Lk. 1:32-33 Praise the Lord; he has come and has redeemed his people. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us – To show mercy – To rescue us – To enable us to serve without fear in holiness and righteousness Lk. 1:8-75 We CAN be different!

7 But… To their age and ours truth is nothing more than talk, slick talk at that. The eye is the decisive organ rather than the ear. The world craves real. Real is everything. Real is convincing. So where is this love of God talked about? – I see child exploitation in Oswego County. – I see an 11%+ unemployment rate. – I see meth labs on the increase. – But I don’t see you…

8 The Musician… John 11:

9 The Musician Plays In the 30 th year Jesus began to let them SEE. In the 30 th year Jesus began to let them SEE. The lame walked. The lame walked. The blind saw. The blind saw. The lepers were cleansed. The lepers were cleansed. The hungry were fed. The hungry were fed. The disenfranchised were defended. The disenfranchised were defended. The dead rose from the grave. The dead rose from the grave. This is the year of the captive set free! This is the year of the captive set free!

10 Our Music of Freedom Let everyone see your good deeds. Matt. 5:16 Let everyone see your good deeds. Matt. 5:16 Love your enemies, do good to them. Luke 6:31-35 Love your enemies, do good to them. Luke 6:31-35 It is more blessed to give. Acts 20:35 It is more blessed to give. Acts 20:35 Overcome evil with good. Romans 12:20-12 Overcome evil with good. Romans 12:20-12 Do good to all people. Galatians 6:9-10 Do good to all people. Galatians 6:9-10 Created to do good works. Ephesians 2:10 Created to do good works. Ephesians 2:10 Do not grow weary of doing good. 2 Thess. 3:13 Do not grow weary of doing good. 2 Thess. 3:13 Be rich in good deeds. 1 Timothy 6:17-19 Be rich in good deeds. 1 Timothy 6:17-19 Engage in good deeds. Titus 3:8 Engage in good deeds. Titus 3:8 Be eager to do what is good. Titus 2:11-14 Be eager to do what is good. Titus 2:11-14 Spur one another on to love and good deeds. Heb. 10:14 Spur one another on to love and good deeds. Heb. 10:14

11 What is the Heart of Our Music? The link between holy living and evangelism must be forged and unbroken. You will stand out for your moral purity You will stand out for your hatred of cruelty, civil obedience, and good citizenship. You will stand out for your care and fight for throw away children on the altars of sexuality and perversion. You will stand out as you live a disciplined life not overcome “buy” the gods of possessions. Such Lives Make Great Impact

12 What Do We See? The link between holy living and evangelism must be forged and unbroken. You will stand out for your moral purity You will stand out for your hatred of cruelty, civil obedience, and good citizenship. You will stand out for your care and fight for throw away children on the altars of sexuality and perversion. You will stand out as you live a disciplined life not overcome “buy” the gods of life and possessions. Share how you love Jesus!

13 And SO the Crowd Went Wild With palm branches and cloaks they welcomed their hero. Bread Maker, Fish Multiplier, Disease Healer, Life Restorer – As King he would make life better and right! But Jesus would not be coerced into fixing merely our visible life. He came to restore our invisible life and through us change the world. So the said: If you will not give us what we want then - “Crucify him… We have no king but Caesar” And so the crowd went wild again

14 And the Music Stopped By your choices …
