I want to write music, to write songs, that reflect, illustrate, and illuminate every passage of Scripture, every great and challenging teaching of every significant branch of the body of Christ. There is already so much good and great music and words that have been created for these purposes. And in an affluent society like ours, with such widespread education and leisure time, thousands of new works are being created all the time.
My creations are just a few drops in an enormous and powerful river. Others will dip their cups into the river and drink of others' works, and receive powerful nourishment and enlightenment from them. Maybe, if I work hard enough, create works that are good enough, and all happens by the grace of our gracious and generous Creator God, perhaps my works will go on to nourish some of those who come to the river to drink.
