When I was in high school, I sang in the glee club.
We were divided into groups of high sopranos, sopranos, second sopranos, altos, tenors, baritones and basses.
Our music teacher sent each group to a separate room to learn our part of the music. She never allowed us to hear the other groups. So each group only knew their part.
After we had learned it really well, she began putting groups together, two at a time. We were amazed at how well we fit together and yet had such different melodies.
Then came the grand day when she brought all the groups together. Our amazement turned into pure awe as we heard ourselves sing.
We learned far more than music in that class. We learned how it was possible to be very different, and yet fit together so perfectly under the direction of one who knew how to lead us.
We learned the joy of being a part of the whole. After our first song, we worked in eager anticipation of how we were all going to fit together for the next song.
Life is like that. We each work on our parts. God puts us together as family and friends. We work on doing life together. But we still don’t know the whole story.
And until God brings us all together and we put in the parts we have learned, just as He directs, we will not know the whole story. It is only then we will know the whole Joy of Heaven.
How I look forward to that day. That will be the real Hallelujah Chorus!
I invite you to anticipate that great day as you listen to Gloria Gaither describe it. Here is the link.
