Transport To… WHERE?

A while ago a friend was passing through Chicago- it seems I was out
of town at the time and he went ahead and left me a present… which
you see here.

Funny enough, my father drove truck for years (eventually was called
to management) in what was one of the most prestigious logistics
companies in the U.S. at the time.

Many years later my brother also drove truck for what was -then- one
of the largest, most respected trucking companies.

So my passing visitor buddy left me this cap- which came in handy
today as it’s raining here in Chicago. I love rain… and I also love
taking people places, spiritually, emotionally, hopefully even
intellectually at least to a degree.

The Scriptures tell us this about Jesus: “the common people heard Him
gladly”. Why?

Likely because he spoke in language that they readily understood. God
the Son was very much -at least in the sense I’m speaking here- “one
of them”. What He said and did was all about love, all about truth,
all about authenticity. From the record, He was/is anything BUT
pretentious.

The popular song of several years ago asked “What if God were one of
us?” and there is in a sense- that fact that though He is quite unlike
us… He also came into His created world in human form very much like
one of us. Amazing, this “incarnation” stuff!

But as I smiled at the cap the bro. gave me, I had to ask myself
“where are you taking people”? What witness -for or against, closer to
or farther from, benign or actually affecting others with Jesus and
His Good News? Do they see and hear a genuine disciple, a
listener/learner of Christ?

I’m not asking the question “where do you want to go today” but rather
“where am I trying to take people today”. Who are you following and
exactly where is it they’re taking you? Super-important question
chillun!!

Most of my life has been spent as a musician. It seems people are
“transported” by me (and all who read this…) in terms of influence.
Not all the time, but often. Where am I taking you? To WHOM am I
nudging you?

I ask you to consider these same questions with regard to your own
life, music, writing, speaking, prayers… everything.

I don’t know anything about Kaiser Transport but I like the vibe. I
trust they transport with commitment and caution.

That’s my aim too 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! -Glenn
