Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in North Carolina once said,
“Everybody wants to be a rockstar, but nobody wants to learn the chords.”
This meaning, we all want the glory, the fame and the success without actually doing anything. Pertaining to the Christian faith…we all want this remarkably strong faith that is completely unshakeable with total knowledge of the Bible with the ability to rattle off verses for every trial that someone is going through…but we don’t want to do the work to get there. We don’t want to go through the Godsend trials that will grow our faith and take us to the next level in our relationship with Jesus or spend the required time in the Word, soaking it up and making it the core of who we are.
If we want to be the rockstars, we must do the work. You ask to be the Christian rockstar, you better bet that God will send the trials that will form you into that rockstar. You want to be the “Bible scholar” you have to get into the Word and soak it up!
So…do you want to be a rockstar? If so, are you ready to learn the chords?
