TO MY PERSONAL PEOPLE (Church musicians) | Nathaniel Bassey

A lot of times church musicians accuse pastors of living the good life while they struggle to make ends meet (and sometimes there can be a few pastors that could be insensitive to the needs of their church musicians) but this is what I've found; many church musicians are not even serious with their walk with God.

Some are not even saved. They have one leg in church and the other in the world. They have no regard for the word of God. The very thing that brings transformation and change to a life.

As soon as they are done playing, they walk out, just gisting outside when the word is going on. And when they are not outside, they are inside but not paying attention. You find them cracking jokes and fiddling with their phones and not listening. I know this because I was once like this. And had all the idea about pastors being blessed and living large while we suffered.

How can we be blessed like this? You are not blessed and successful because you can play an instrument, you are because you practice Joshua 1:8.

"8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."

I throw you a challenge my brother/sister: forget the pastors living large; including those who may not really care. You make straight your crooked ways, seek God, put his word inside you and on your lips, do what it says, work hard and smart, serve faithfully, spend time in prayer, in worship and just obey his voice, then come back in a year or two and let's talk. Let's see if your life won't so change that you can't recognize yourself again. And we'll see if that your pastor story is true or not.
