What is your favourite music? Are any of the older favourites still being played on radio today? Kay and I have reminisced lately by watching Classic Countdown on the ABC. The first appearances of the band ACDC  look ridiculous but who would have thought they would still be so popular over 40 years later. There was a band called the Bay City Rollers from Scotland who were very popular in the 70’s but didn’t last long. I really enjoyed a concert by Queen in 1976 at the Apollo Stadium, I’m glad I went. In recent days enormous success was enjoyed by Psy from South Korea with his song Gangnam Style, watched over 3 billion times. Heaps of fun which even brings some joy for a time, but does it last? Lasting joy and fruitfulness comes from being connected with Jesus.

John 15:4-5, “Stay joined to me, and I will stay joined to you. Just as a branch cannot produce fruit unless it stays joined to the vine, you cannot produce fruit unless you stay joined to me. I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I stay joined to you, then you will produce lots of fruit. But you cannot do anything without me.” CEV

Keep enjoying your music and have fun, but don’t spend your life on one hit wonders! Get involved with the One who lasts for eternity.
