Remember Where You Come From

Revelation 3:1-6

The popular band Needtobreathe does something very unique at the end of their concerts. The band members gather close together at the front of the stage and sing their final song acoustically. It is a pure acoustic number, which they do even in larger venues. Closing concerts in this way reminds them of the early days as a band when they were playing in churches and venues that were so small power was not needed. They do this at the end of each concert because they never want to forget where they came from.

When people belittle the church they have grown up in and the people that have invested in their lives, it is a sign that they have forgotten where they came from. It was churches with faithful, though far from perfect, people who invested in your life. Maybe now you are more educated, have seen the world, attended larger churches, and have seen church done “bigger” and “better.” Almost everything good we have in life came through the faithfulness of simple people and simple churches, just trying to be the Church.

“Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard,” and never forget where you came from.

    I tried to research Needtobreathe’s name to no avail, or, for no particular reason other than it sounding neat..

    However, since they are a Christian band and we have to breathe to have “life, I’m “assuming” that it could be “some” of their witness for Jesus (like the Red Cross trademark that utilizes their actions rather than words for opening doors).
