1. Be Faithful and make Jesus the Peak.
Be faithful to God's cause which is Redemption and relationship with His people
Be faithful to God's cause even when it may not include you having a platform that you want to
You may not have the fans that you want to have, at the end of the day be faithful and obedient in joy to the call of God
Enjoying God is peak! right?!
God is the peak, your artistry is just a vehicle to do so, your artistry is a vehicle to reflect who God is to display Him
I feel like artists are so anxious to have platforms to be seen, to be known that they never really experience the full joy that they can have in faithfulness
You know, I mean, just faithfully serving the Lord
If He gives you an audience of 1K, good. If you get your audience of 10K great.
At the end of the day it’s about being locked, synced and being a part of God's cause, His executive plan - what He wants to do, to save the world through Christ, right?!
Whether you have that many fans isn’t the the big picture, it doesn't really matter, you know?! Who cares, it’s harsh but, Jesus has to be the peak
(As artists we must decide)
2. Be Faithful and make great art.
Make good art, that's the other thing
Don't make sloppy art, invest in your craft
Take time because there's worth in your art
Your art deserves attention
Your art deserves vision it
Your art deserves focus
Your art deserves the determination
So don't squander the gifts that the Lord have given you
Do them well
3. Be Faithful and be pleased with whatever He gives you as a result.
