First and foremost about our relationship with Him, and His relationship with us.
But, with that as a given, how can we say we have a relationship with Him when we have no meaningful relationships with each other – none that come even close to our oneness that Jesus prayed and died for?
Where is that “first love,” without which there is no fire, and our candlestick is gone? Where is this love that is the first fruit of The Spirit? For that matter, where is the evidence of the Spirit’s work in our relationships with each other?
Paul writes to us in Ephesians: “Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,” Ephesians 5:17-19.
And this brings me once again to the very rocks crying out: (While the theology of rocks is not perfect, why should it be any better than the theology of what’s been calling itself “church”?)

NOTE: Jay’s original video was Frank Sinatra singing this song, not of himself, but the original video is no longer available on YouTube. But, since then Jay had done a karaoke version of the same song that was filmed by his daughter. The link above will take you to this version. Enjoy! :-)
