After the Music Stops

After the show, after the set, after the music stops what's next?
Will there be fellowship, prayer, disciples, will you open your bibles after the music stops.
After it's over, after it ends, after the music stops, what then?
Will you understand that Christ is King? Or will you just like the words we sing after the music stops.

These are the lyrics by Lacrae's, "After the Music Stops".  He is one of many Christian Rappers/Ministers out there reaching the masses through music.  One thing that intrigues me about this is that we, all listen to music in church.  Sometimes it is foot-stomping music.  Sometimes it is hand-clapping music.  Sometimes it is slow head-bobbing music.  Sometimes it might be a combination of all three and then some.

At any rate, we can be some emotional people and music has a way of moving and touching us.  Sometimes, I wonder if it is the moment or is it really reaching our hearts.  Are we really latching on to the contents of the music and going to the Word to learn more or is it just a moment?  At the end of the day and after music is done are you changed or do you just like the words that were sang after the music stopped?

One of those things that makes you go hmmmmm......
