“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.
I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:17-18, 22-23 NIV
Hopefully by now you haven’t watched ALL of Netflix. LoL I recently started watching a show called “The Get Down.” It’s about a group of kids who start a rap group called The Get Down Boys in the late 70s. I haven’t finished the series yet. I’ve been told by friends of mine not to finish it, because I’ll be disappointed. I’m not going to listen, because I actually enjoy the series so far.
Watching I learned what the basis for the name of the series. The DJ in the group is named Shaolin Fantastic. He gets mentored by Grandmaster Flash on how to DJ. Flash teaches him to master finding the get down in a record. The get down is a particular point in the song that you can find a groove to loop and mix with other music.
In other words, it’s a portion you use to build on and bring things together. We as the body of Christ have to use this time of quarantine to find our get down. It’s not 1975 so we don’t use terms like that any more. In this time we might say keep it in the pocket, finding our groove or get in the zone. There is a niche that God would have us to find in this time that we can build upon and bring things together.
Maybe not physically due to social distancing, but we can still stay connected as a community. The word of God can still go forth and we can still praise and worship the name of Jesus. Jesus didn’t say, “The Father seeks those to worship Him in a church building.” Jesus said that the Father seeks those who worship Him in spirit and truth. The church must continue to be the church. We encourage each other in the Lord and continue to lead souls to Jesus Christ. As they say in business about Chick-Fil-A, “This is our chicken sandwich.” This is our groove. This is our get down.
That leads us to our Throwback Theology Song of the Week. This song comes from the south from Dre Murray. The featured song is from his 2008 album, “Manumit.” The word manumit means releases from slavery or set free. The featured song is called “Get Down” and features Fedel. Tune into Trackstarz to hear DJ Jeremaya spin this for the Throwback Theology Song of the Day. Until next time…
