Being like Jesus..

There are a few blogs that I read daily..most of them are listed on my blog links at the bottom of my page. One of my favorites is
wwww.ragamuffinsoul.com. Carlos was a worship leader at Sandals church in California and now works for BuckHead Church in Atlanta. He puts together a great blog. He was leading worship this Easter and ..well I'll let you see what he wrote..

I’m in verse 2 and I look to my left and am hit like a blind side pick and roll.
Swaying on the front row was a guy I later learned was named Matt.
Standing in front of him was another guy named Jefferson.
It was a moment that stands out above all else in my 11 years of leading worship.
You see Matt and Jefferson were worshipping God, together.
Jefferson has severe cerebral palsy. He has little, if any control over his body.
Matt was standing behind Jefferson.
Holding Jefferson.
20 minutes.
Dancing with Jefferson and singing at the top of his lungs.
Jefferson was singing too. I think could hear him.
And it was the most beautiful song I have ever heard.

There are hundreds of thoughts, emotions, and lessons that could go along with Matt and Jefferson.
To watch them sing out and dance was a thing of beauty. Obedience. Unbridled Joy.
Thank you Matt and Jefferson for a shifting moment in my life.

Thank you Carlos for sharing that moment with us!
