A conductor guides musicians in the orchestra to follow his lead. Some strings are setting a harmonic mood, the percussion is providing beats and a rhythm, the brass provide the accents, and the woodwinds herald a melodic tune. They each have a part made for them, and individually they are practiced and played, but only as they follow the maestro’s cues and listen to each other do they transform the pages of notes to a living, breathing, unified creation. The music produced is very similar to how God guides His church. Each member has its unique purpose. Some are louder, some blend in more, and some stand out as totally unique. Others are almost overlooked completely though, without them, the work of the body is incomplete. When God guides them all, the outcome is a work of art that amazes the senses and the soul.
